Endodontics 101 & 102 and Beyond…


The key to successful Endodontics is a grasp of the basic principles of treatment. Meticulous attention to detail in following the dictates of the Endodontic Triad, microbial control, cleaning & shaping, and seal of the canal system, is a requirement to achieve this goal.

ENDO 101 presents a philosophy of treatment grounded in these principles and coupled with over fifty years of clinical experience. Today’s technological advances are integrated with these basic principles to achieve endodontic success with more ease, decreased stress, in less time and with greater consistency of achieving favorable results.

ENDO 102
involves establishing a Glide Path, with an M4 reciprocating contra angle. This time honored device decreases hand, wrist, and mental fatigue. If you can establish working length with a # 10 .02 stainless steel hand file you can clean and shape the canal to ideal proportions with time little & effort. This approach is compatible with all of the rotary instrumentation systems available today. Seal of the canal system, the base of the Endodontic Triad, will be explored with emphasis on the latest technical root canal filling materials.
