Event Details

Course Outline:

This course comprises lectures, demonstrations and hands-on components.

Clinical endodontic procedures can be technically difficult at times. However, with a good understanding of the technical procedures,

it is possible for general dental practitioners to perform root canal treatment on the majority of teeth.

As part of understanding the technical procedures, it is essential to also know and understand the various instruments and materials

that are used. There are many, many choices of instruments, materials and techniques, so it can be confusing and difficult to decide what to use. The first secret is to keep things simple and choose a “package deal” – that is, choose instruments that match the materials and the technique.

This course will outline simple techniques for the major stages of root canal treatment – starting with initial canal negotiation, followed by working length determination, canal preparation and root canal filling techniques. Participants will then be able to practise these techniques by doing the hands-on practical exercises on extracted teeth.

The main objective of this course is to prepare general practitioners for an immediate improvement in their technical skills and ability to perform root canal treatment.
