This course will immerse attendees into an energetic and in-depth look at the latest advanced materials used in endodontics which enable favorable outcomes and directly assist in saving more teeth. The instructor will discuss the latest in niti instrument technology along with bioceramic root canal sealers. The surgical use of root repair materials and cements will be discussed and demonstrated. Prevention of coronal microleakage is key to success and a presentation on materials to seal the orifices and chambers will be covered. The surgical applications of bioactive materials for use in apical microsurgery and resorption repair will be discussed and demonstrated. Multiple uses of CBCT for endodontic applications will be presented.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Discuss niti instruments to streamline your canal location, glide path, and canal preparation
  • Learn how advanced material science allows us to create a more stable 3D seal of root canal systems
  • Determine how to best seal good root canal treatment to prevent coronal leakage
  • Understand how the use of new bioactive materials provides an ideal seal for apical retro fillings and resorption repair
  • Review multiple applications of CBCT for use in endodontic treatment
