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.


This is a hands-on course.

This multimedia course will teach you to feel, fill, and drill accessory canals. The course will cover micro CT on a real apex; root canal anatomy; radiographic techniques, including 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” of cleaning and shaping, including radiographic terminus, working length, maintaining apical patency by finger instruments, calcified, double curve canals, and avoiding ledges using 10 tricks and irrigant system; 10 mechanical and 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, including how to down=pack and back pack using the thermal profile and hydraulic pressure of thick sealer; under-extension, over-extension, under-fill, overfill, and coronal versus apical leakage; one=versus multiple-visit endodontics; factor X’s effect on success rate; and how to achieve excellence in endodontics and maintain a profitable income.  The course will answer questions about sealants, Thermafil, irrigation systems, coronal leakage, factor X, and one-visit endodontics, among other topics.

Participants will need two anterior teeth, two premolars, and two molars; high speed handpieces for FG #2, 4 round bur, and taper diamond bur; bur changers; low speed handpieces for Gates-Glidden drills #s 2, 3, and 4; and magnifying loupes.
