Imaging of root canal anatomy in 3-D with CBCT allows us to be better clinicians and offer more effective treatments. This course is designed to focus on treatment of root canals in three dimensions. The complex root canal systems require effective disinfection with irrigation. Efficient obturation is critical to seal these complex anatomical spaces effectively. Hands-on workshop activities will include irrigation, obturation, and reading CBCT volumes for endodontic cases. 

In this course attendees will:
  • Define the anatomical and clinical necessity of chemical debridement of root canal systems with irrigation  
  • Demonstrate 3D obturation of root canal systems with warm vertical and single cone obturation techniques  
  • Review multiple uses of CBCT imaging for endodontic application with hands-on practice for attendees  
  • Conduct hands-on practice in obturation and irrigation using 3D printed molars  
  • Receive hands-on practice to manipulate, read, and comprehend 3D CBCT volumes
