This two-day, hands-on training course translates current academic knowledge into clinical practice. Treatment protocols based on available evidence promise success rates for teeth with apical periodontitis comparable to vital teeth. Cutting-edge treatment of vital and necrotic immature teeth (vital pulp therapy and revascularization) will be discussed and demonstrated.
Lecture segments are designed to update participants with the current developments regarding the most important challenges in modern endodontics. Topics covered in the lectures include:
In a state-of-the-art continuing education facility with individual microscopes and hands-on guidance, participants will gain training in:
Microendodontic Instrumentation to Biologically Adequate Sizes. Concise training exercises on extracted teeth will enable participants to adapt structured workflows for predictable and safe rotary NiTi instrumentation of the root canal system. Adhesive obturation and build-up techniques as well as the microscopic placement of fiber reinforced posts will be demonstrated and practiced.
Revascularization of Necrotic Immature Teeth. This course offers hands-on training for the proper treatment of necrotic, immature teeth. In an in-vitro model, participants will learn and practice hands-on all the important details and techniques for revascularization, including mixture and consistency of the tri-antibiotic paste, instigation of a blood clot scaffold and the placement of a bacteria tight and stable seal that prevents reinfection of the tooth.
