Contemporary Endodontics: 3-Day Course

October 10 - 12, 2024


Date:October 10-12, 2024

We are at the beginning of a new era in endodontics. With new technologies and materials, we can now maintain the vitality of many more teeth. When root canal therapy is required, 3-D cleaning allows us superior microbial control while at the same time maintaining maximal tooth structure. This unique program is a collaborative effort between the Univeristy of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, Department of Endodontics and Next Level Endodontics. It has been created for the practitioner who seeks to provide his or her patients with long-term, predictable, clinical success. The course content is derived from the most current biologic knowledge and the clinical application of this science. This course is designed for both the beginner and the experienced practitioner who want to advance with modern technologies to provide their patients with the best chance of success in maintaining natural dentition.

Course Overview

The course covers all current biological concepts for positive endodontic treatment outcomes. The technical aspects of this endodontic course are covered by hands-on and live demonstrations. Instruments and techniques are discussed and demonstrated with videography using the dental microscope. The paramount aim of the course is to enable the participant to perform the full scope of endodontic procedures and to understand endodontic biological principles in order to evaluate new instruments and techniques and to evolve with the changes in the discipline.

  • the most advanced adaptive/virtual core instrumentation
    • the XP Shaper and Finisher system
    • bio-active materials for obturation
  • three-dimensional root cleaning; anatomically driven
  • three-dimensional intra-canal disinfective finishing
  • Access; the fundamental requirements for access are reviewed and basic rules for adequate access presented.
    Minimal but adequate access is the ultimate aim!!!!
  • optimal debridement and sizing of the apical third
  • synchronized cold hydraulic bioceramic root filling
  • progressive irrigation techniques
  • hands-on workshops
  • personalized instruction on how the new era of 3-dimensional shaping, cleaning and obturation will impact on your practice future.
  • microscope instruction and hands-on experience with the microscope
  • the use of microscopes to visualize the root canal system for the hands-on sections of the course
  • anesthesia and pain management for the endodontic patient
  • endodontic diagnosis
  • endodontic surgical versus non-surgical treatment

Participants are asked to bring 15-20 extracted teeth and to access half of them for endodontic treatment.
