TOTAL CPD FOR THIS EVENT: 6 HOURS
This event includes information on the following topics:
The intended audience for this event includes:
Do you want to use the most modern techniques and materials? Do you want to treat teeth that last longer?
This course is designed to give the skilled general practitioner the knowledge, materials and techniques to complete endodontic treatment to the highest possible standard and will be kept small to ensure a personalised experience for participants.
This program will be limited to a small group to ensure open communication during the course and better value for participants.
- Identifying the right tooth. Complex diagnostic scenarios: cracked teeth and myofascial pain.
- An introduction to the new concept of “Minimally Invasive Endodontics” and an evidence-based evaluation of the risks and benefits of MIE. Techniques to employ in practice to extend the life of endodontically treated teeth.
- An Australian first: exposure to the latest advances in NiTi technology - beyond heat- treated NiTi. A look at the advances in nickel titanium instrumentation with a focus on the advantages of utilising the latest NiTi alloys
- Learn to customise canal preparation specific to canal morphologies – one size and technique does not fit all – take your knowledge to the next level. Do you fracture instruments? Negotiate complex anatomy the way endodontists can: ledges, aggressive curvatures, S-bends whilst minimising the risks of fractures. Practical session with EDM NiTi files
- A look at the major tooth-threatening iatrogenic errors: fractured instruments and perforations and preventing such mistakes. A focus on communication with the patient when complications occur. Understanding when those complications will be disastrous to outcome and when they will not
- Advances in obturation techniques and new sealer technology. Practical session
- What is the “new” ideal standard of care and what can general dental practitioners do to achieve it?
- Restoration of root-filled teeth. Are crowns always necessary? A look at recent literature about the use of posts in root-filled teeth and to assist in selecting the appropriate type of post
- Understanding the limitations and advantages minimally invasive endodontics and implementing “orifice directed access” in your practice
- Utilise the latest NiTi technology to achieve specific canal-appropriate instrumentation with reduced risk of iatrogenic errors
- Ability to obturate with modern techniques and sealers
- Advanced knowledge of conservative restoration of root-filled teeth
This course requires practitioners to collect extracted posterior teeth. Practitioners are also encouraged to bring their loupes on the day. Further details will be provided upon registering.
