“Safety and Simplicity in Root Canal Instrumentation:  Myths, Metal and Motion”

TWO PART PRESENTATION – LIMITED ATTENDANCE


MORNING SESSION

Nearly 25 years after the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Files to endodontics, we’ve learned much about the clinical strengths and limitations of these great instruments. As a result of recent improvements in metallurgy, enhanced designs, and innovative rotary file motions, we now need to understand how these changes affect clinical instrumentation. Furthermore, we must take advantage of these improvements to create an instrumentation protocol that combines Safety with Simplicity.

 

As a result of recent advances in metallurgy, we now have both heat treated and non-heat treated rotary files.  They each possess different properties and both have indications for use as well as limitations. At Real World Endo, we believe these improvements should be employed to their utmost advantage.  Consequently, we have developed a blended technique that combines the advantages of both heat treated and non-heat treated files into one Awesome Endodontic Technique!!!

 

During this lecture component, participants will learn:

 

  1. Learn how rotary file design influences instrumentation safety and efficiency.
  2. Comprehend the advantages of heat-treated files and how best to use them.
  3. Discover the most effective instrument motions available for shaping root canals and their advantages and limitations.

 

AFTERNOON SESSION – HANDS-ON

In this hands-on workshop, our new “Blend Technique” will be introduced and participants will learn how to use it effectively in all root canal types. After attending this workshop, you will improve your instrumentation predictability while dramatically reducing instrument separation. Furthermore, a simple yet effective obturation method will be introduced that combines the latest in material science with endodontic synchronicity for passive, bonded root canal obturation.

All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the workshop. Get ready to improve your instrumentation predictability and gutta percha cone-fit while dramatically reducing instrument separation. Real World Endo remains dedicated to the preservation of the natural dentition.

 

At the conclusion of this hands-on workshop, participants will:

  1. Fully understand the need to combine the latest technology with long established, evidence-based endodontic principles.
  2. Completely understand the need to utilize piezoelectric ultrasonics in both access and three-dimensional irrigation.
  3. Fully appreciate the benefits of bioceramic obturation and the incorporation of matching posts.
  4. Recognize that ‘Great Endodontics’ can be accomplished in both a safe and simple manner.  The key is to combine new technology with long established, evidence- based endodontic principles.

 

PLEASE NOTE: BRING ANY ACCESSED, EXTRACTED TEETH YOU MAY WANT TO WORK ON.

IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS HANDS-ON SESSION, IT IS NECESSARY TO COMPLETE THE LECTURE PROGRAM IN THE MORNING.

Mario E. Abdennour, DMD, MMSc                                                     

Dr. Abdennour received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1989 from the Washington University School of Dental Medicine where he as well received the “outstanding clinical ability” award. Following his dental degree, he attended a postgraduate general practice residency at a U.S.C. affiliated hospital in California.

 

In 2000 he received his specialty certificate in endodontics, as well as a Master in Medical Sciences in Oral Biology from the Advanced Graduate Endodontic Program at Harvard University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Abdennour currently holds a faculty appointment as a clinical instructor at the Advanced Graduate Endodontic Program at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where he teaches on a part-time basis micro-surgical and non-surgical endodontics. During his specialty program he also trained in surgical endodontics at the Karl Franz University Hospital in Austria. Upon graduation from Harvard, he was the class recipient of the Krakow Award for Clinical Proficiency in Endodontics. In addition, Dr. Abdennour has conducted endodontic research at the Forsyth Dental Institute in Boston contributing in the patent of a therapeutic enzootic agent. He has also lectured nationally and internationally at dental meetings, conventions, dental schools and endodontic programs demonstrating live endodontic surgery.
