Advanced GP Molar Access, Prep and Obturate

Advanced GP Molar Access, Prep and Obturate
This hands-on course is designed for Dentists.

Course Overview

New standards are emerging to provide a more holistic approach to endodontic therapy. Greater importance is being placed on a process that can not only enable the successful elimination of infection within the root canal system but one that is also considerate of the structural integrity of the tooth to provide the most favourable long-term outcome. A component of this is the improvement in material science that has facilitated the manufacture of more flexible and strong instruments.

This endodontic seminar and hands-on workshop will give participants the opportunity to develop the skills to prepare and obturate more conservatively using the latest technology heat-treated files. The majority of the workshop will be spent preparing and obturating teeth. A component of online learning will be necessary prior to the hands-on workshop.


Learning Objectives

At the end of the course, the participant will:

  • Understand the limitations and advantages of implementing orifice directed access in your practice
  • Developed the able to utilise new NiTi technology in conjunction with traditional hand file techniques to achieve specific canal-appropriate instrumentation with reduced risk of iatrogenic error
  • Understand the use of bioceramic sealers and warm lateral condensation techniques to fill canal preparations
