Event Details

The endodontic restoration interface is a complex environment. The outcome of treatment and survival of teeth relies on an interaction between the amount of remaining tooth, the supporting bone and how the tooth is managed restoratively.

This course will be divided into three sections, with a lecture component describing the problem and a hands-on workshop to show how to manage a solution for the problems presented. At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Assess teeth before root canal treatment by assessing the structural integrity of teeth – we will address the relevance of amount of remaining tooth and presence of fractures
  • Manage teeth during the root canal treatment process by preparing a suitable interim and temporary restoration
  • Understand the restorative requirements after root canal treatment, including when and what type of post is required and when is a cusp overlay required
  • Understand why anterior teeth discolour during and after root canal treatment.

The workshop will have three components:
1. Finding the solution: Learn how and when to place a stainless-steel hand on molar and premolar teeth, and when a band is not possible, to create an interim dome restoration in composite resin.
2. Finding the solution: After root canal treatment, the access cavity can be used to retain direct placement restorations. Learn how to clean the access cavity and remove excess gutta percha in preparation for the coronal restoration, and how to prepare a post space and cement posts using different types of posts (metal, fibre, passive threaded).
3. Finding the solution: After completing the root canal treatment, coronal gutta percha and residual tissue must be removed. The cavity is then prepared to receive the bleaching material and temporary restoration. After removal of the temporary restoration, the access cavity must be re-cleaned and the restoration paced to minimise voids.
