Predictably Successful Endodontics
- Root of the problem
- Schilder Warm Gutta Percha Vertical Compaction Technique
This is a hands-on course. Limited attendance.
Instructor: Donald C. Yu, DMD, MScD
This lecture course is a prerequisite of the Saturday hands-on course.
With its multimedia approach, this course teaches dentists to make consistently accurate diagnoses. Experience new breakthroughs in: applying a modern, sensible rationale for successful endodontics; pathogenesis of pulpal and periradicular diseases; simplified accurate precise endodontic diagnosis; and effective and productive emergency treatment.
- Schilderian Rationale for Endodontics – the triad of success
- How to perform all pulp tests and understand interpretations
- Simplified and practical clinical diagnosis of the pulpal and periradicular diseases
- Pathogenesis of the sequential pulpal degeneration
- The “blood and sweat” of endodontics: painless and profound anesthesia, pre-treatment, simplified rubber dam, access opening, and effective emergency management of pain, cleaning & shaping, 3-D vertical compaction of warm gutta percha
This is a hands-on course.
This multimedia course will teach you to feel, fill, and thrill accessory canals. The course will cover micro CT on a real apex; root canal anatomy; radiographic techniques; filling accessory canals and dentinal tubules with gutta-percha and the gutta-percha/dentinal wall interface; effective passive sequential serial filling and reaming with envelope of motion to achieve the “look”; understand radiographic terminus, working length, maintaining apical patency by finger instruments; slide and slip calcified, double curve canals, and avoiding ledges using 10 tricks and copious irrigant system; 5 mechanical and 5 biological objectives; the Schilder warm gutta-percha vertical compaction technique with emphasis on accessory canals and hermetically sealing the portals of exit of the root canal system; how to downpack and backpack using the thermal profile and hysdrostatic/hydraulic pressure of viscous sealer; underextension, overextension, underfill, overfill, and coronal versus apical leakage; one versus multiple-visit endodontics; factor X affecting success rate; and how to achieve excellence in endodontics and maintain a profitable income. The course will answer questions about sealer, Thermafil, irrigation systems, coronal leakage. The participants’ cases will be reviewed and critiqued.
- Learn straight line access opening
- Passive and yet effective cleaning and shaping
- Learn Schilder warm gutta-percha technique
- Understand Micro CT on root canal anatomy, radiographic techniques, effective and painless anesthetic technique, access opening, cleaning and shaping, and 3D packing
