Essential Dentistry-Predictable Endodontics (PO071016)

AvailabilityCourse was cancelled
SubjectEndodontics
DescriptionMany GDPs are moving from traditional to modern endodontic techniques as they keep up with new developments. This course represents an opportunity to thoroughly ‘try before you buy’. All participants are required to bring a minimum of 3 molars accessed ready for endodontics. When the root canals are located they must only be instrumented with a number 10 hand file. No further preparation of the root canal should be carried out. The teeth need to be stored wet/damp in antiseptic and must not be mounted.

Aims

The overall aim of this practical course is to improve the predictability of endodontics. A specific aim is to increase learners’ skills in modern endodontic preparation and obturation techniques.

Objectives

1. To discuss some of the most common procedural errors in endodontics.

2. To assess how these can be overcome with the use of modern preparation techniques.

3. To assess how these can be minimised through modern obturation techniques.

4. To consider the factors that significantly impact endodontic success rates.

Learning outcomes

Following this course learners should be able to: 

1. Make the assessment that the tooth can be root treated and then restored to normal function, so as to care plan for endodontic success.

2. Effectively prepare root canals for obturation, and relate theory and practice so as to improve predictability of clinical treatment and outcomes when saving the tooth with root treatment.

3. Effectively obturate the root canals, and relate theory and practice so as to improve predictability of clinical treatment and outcomes when saving the tooth with root treatment.

4. Evaluate the clinical risk when deciding whether endodontics is appropriate or not.
