This 1-Day hands-on course is designed for the general practitioners to improve their daily endodontic skills.  Topics will include diagnosis, case selection, latest endodontic instrumentation, shaping and cleaning, packing of the root canal system in three dimensions with warm obturation techniques.  The seminar is followed by a hands-on course, which provides the participants with the opportunity to learn about the contemporary endodontic treatment using the most advanced rotary NiTi file system – ‘TF-Adaptive’ (Sybronendo, USA) and optimal obturation of root canals with warm compaction techniques.  The new ‘TF-Adaptive System’ allows the Twisted File to adjust to the intra-canal torsional forces depending on the amount of pressure placed on the file, the file will be in either a rotary or reciprocation motion depending on the situation.  It results in excellent debris removal and less chance of file pull-in and file separation.

This program will be invaluable for clinicians serious about making endodontics an important and growing part of their practice.

  • Mature apices
  • Normal curvature, optimal length (about 18-21 mm) (anything longer in length is not an issue)Access cavity prepared
