The intended audience for this event includes:
In day-to-day clinical practise, endodontic procedural problems are a frequent and frustrating occurrence. The course is aimed at general practitioners who want first-hand experience in techniques to reduce the incidence of problems to an absolute minimum.
Covering treatment strategies for frustrating clinical situations and frequently encountered instrumentation and obturation problems in clinical practice, this course will feature interactive seminars as well as practical treatment exercises on extracted teeth.
A range of rotary Ni-Ti systems, access burs, obturation materials, ultrasonic tips and instruments will be available for you to use during the practical exercises.
This intensive course will be invaluable for clinicians serious about making endodontics an important and growing part of their practice.
Microscopy and Endodontic practice
Good illumination and magnification are fundamental to endodontic success.
Operating microscopes, courtesy of Zeiss equipment, will be available for all participants to use while completing the hands-on exercises.
Participants who work using loupes or headlights should bring them along. A range of loupes will also be available for you to view and try during the course.
