This event includes information on the following topics:

The intended audience for this event includes:

Is it restorable?

Presented by Dr Mark Johnstone

Before undertaking endodontic treatment, it is essential to ensure the tooth is suitable for restoration. This lecture will present ways an endodontist assesses restorability and discuss factors that influence the structural and restorative prognosis of an endodontically treated tooth.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • appreciate factors that influence restorability
  • better determine the restorability of endodontically treated teeth.

Endodontic diagnosis and treatment in 3D

Presented by Dr David Fidgor

Several technological advances have really enhanced endodontic diagnosis and treatment. The Operating Microscope provides superior magnification and illumination, which improves treatment by enhancing direct vision. With the advent of high resolution Cone Beam CT, it is possible to dramatically aid radiographic visualisation, providing accurate discrimination of anatomical structures in three dimensions for detailed preoperative diagnosis and treatment planning. This technology has many applications, for example assessment of undisclosed pathology, anatomy, resorption and root fractures. These will be illustrated using clinical case-based examples.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the value of 3D visualisation in Endodontics
  • Know how to read a Cone Beam CT scan
  • Apply these methods for treatment planning.

An update on canal preparation and irrigation techniques

Presented by Dr Daniel Felman

Chemo-mechanical preparation of the root canal space provides the basis for disinfection required for successful root canal treatment. This presentation will review the current state of play relating to the chemo-mechanical preparation in modern endodontics.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the importance of canal preparation procedures on treatment success
  • Appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of various instrumentation techniques and systems
  • Identify safe and effective irrigation strategies to optimise anti-microbial efficacy.
