Intermediate Endodontics (SW20-2-28-01)

AvailabilityCourse has taken place
DescriptionThis course is a fantastic opportunity to gain confidence in root treating molar teeth. Jon Cowie and Luca Morenzoni will consider which teeth are good candidates for root treatment, modern access cavity preparations, guide path solutions with the OneG file. We will be using simulated teeth to practice access cavity preparation (upper and lower molar), canal preparation and obturation. This will be a small group - no more than 12 dentists - so plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
Additional information

This course will focus on management of molar teeth using the OneCurve file which is a continuous rotation file, very cost effective and works with most endodontic motors. An assumed prior knowledge of rotary endodontics will be made and we would recommend having undertaken a introductory rotary endodontic course prior to this.

If you are looking for an introduction to rotary endo, or practice in treating single rooted teeth Introductory Endodontics, might be a better course for you.
