Course Description:

The purpose of this video is to powerfully demonstrate endodontic treatment techniques you can utilize to consistently shape canals and three-dimensionally clean and fill root canal systems. Techniques are demonstrated utilizing 3-D graphics and animation, extracted teeth and operatory patients. All procedures have been performed to optimally transfer knowledge and maximize your learning experience.

Concepts & Strategies – Learn how to sequence the prep, establish working length, and consistently manage the glide path.

Shaping Techniques – “Ruddle on Rotary” techniques allow you to safely and efficiently shape canals with emphasis on internal and external anatomy.

Hydrodynamic Disinfection – Visualize how fluid activation encourages debridement and disinfection. Cleaning root canal systems promotes 3-D obturation.
