About Course
Course Description

This comprehensive course will walk you through the essentials needed for daily endodontic procedures. A case-based diagnosis provides you with a step-by-step and systematic approach to reach a diagnosis. You will learn how to select your patients based on the difficulty assessment tool and manage hot teeth. The fun part of Endodontics – cleaning & shaping and obturation – will be elaborated upon, so that you will be comfortable with negotiation of narrow canals, root canal preparation, and 3D obturation using the state of the art continuous wave compaction technique.


Cone beam CT scan and ultrasonics are facilitators and will assist you with the diagnosis and endodontic procedure. The hands-on part of this course will teach various machine-driven endodontic instruments (from Dentsply Sirona), continuous wave of compaction, multiple wave of compaction, and ultrasonics. 

Learning objectives of the hands-on course
  • Learn to use ultrasonic instruments to locate canals Learn to create a predictable glide path
