  • To the Point Corporate-Sponsored Webinar | Adaptive Technologies for Endodontic Treatment and Retreatment

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    image


    Description: Root canal treatment should provide maximal microbial control while maintaining the structural strength of the tooth. Traditional files are not able to achieve this fundamental aim. The XP family of endodontic instruments is designed to expand and adapt to the natural canal morphology, enabling maximal debridement and disinfection without changes to the canal shape and ensures minimal removal of intracanal dentin. This ultra-conservative treated root can then be filled using bioceramic technologies that do not require excessive coronal preparation. The webinar will describe the technology that is moving us into a new era in endodontics.  

    At conclusion participants should be able to: 

    • Comprehend the scientifically based biologic requirements for endodontic success.
    • Describe the limitations of files that creates a round shape.
    • Explain the latest generation of technologies that allows us to clinically obtain the essential biologic goals for success.
