Streamlined Endodontics: Brazilian Group Course-SOLD OUT

October 16 - 17, 2019



This unique program has been designed by Dr. Martin Trope and the NLE faculty for the practitioner who seeks to provide his or her patients with long term predictable clinical success. The course content matches biologic requirements for success with cutting edge technology as taught by the endodontic department of the University of Pennsylvania.

You will be trained in bio-minimalistic rotary concepts using maximally safe apical sizes or advanced anatomically directed virtual core instruments only recently available on the market. Passive bioceramic obturation completes the requirements for a technique that respects both biological and functional requirements for long term success. These systems are consistent, efficient and predictable and readily transferable from the classroom to the treatment room. The class size is small so individual attention is guaranteed and the NLE faculty is available online for follow-up technical support and assistance.

At this program you will experience:

  • the use of microscopes to visualize the root canal system.
  • 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
  • optimal debridement and sizing of the apical third
  • synchronized cold hydraulic bioceramic root filling
  • progressive irrigation techniques
  • hands-on workshop
  • a live patient demonstration which will demonstrate the techniques discussed
  • personalized instruction on how the new era of 3-dimensional shaping, cleaning and obturation will impact on your practice future



Treatment of Apical Periodontitis:
Positive treatment outcomes for necrotic teeth are invariably lower than those for vital teeth with irreversible pulpitis. The attendee will learn current procedures of microbial control, bio-mechanical instrumentation and state-of-the-art irrigation protocols that can ensure the same rate of success for necrotic teeth and vital teeth.

Instrumentation of the Apical Third:
The generally accepted rationale for apical preparation will be discussed. The evidence based biologic imperative of apical third shaping and cleaning will be addressed in regard to the pros and cons of various instrument sizes and tapers.

Operating Microscope Instruction with Hands-On:
Our faculty will cover the basics of the operating microscope and its benefits with endodontic treatment. Each participant will be shown on a personal basis how to parfocal and adjust the oculars so that they can use the microscope throughout the hands-on sections of the course and utilize this knowledge in practice.

Three Dimensional Root Cleaning and Synchronized, Hydraulic, Bioceramic Root Filling:
Bio-minimalistic 3-D cleaning and bioceramic root filling technologies will be discussed. New technologies promise excellent results for vital and non-vital teeth both for prevention and for treatment of apical periodontitis and for the long-term survivability of the tooth will be shared.

Hands-On Training:
Participants will perform effective, hands-on exercises on extracted teeth as well as realistic simulated models of natural teeth. This establishes a foundation for predictable and safe rotary NiTi instrumentation of the root canal system. New 3-D technology that allows for superior cleaning of the root canal system in all dimensions with minimal removal of dentin will be introduced. The limitations of gutta-percha obturation will be presented and state-of-the art, bioactive obturation techniques and concepts will be highlighted during the course.

Participants are asked to bring 2 – 4 extracted teeth, accessed for endodontic treatment.

Terms and Conditions:
The fee for the course is $1,600 with a deposit of $600, which reserves the space. The remaining balance will be due on the first day of the course.

If the course is cancelled by the registrant six weeks or more before the start date, the deposit minus a $100 administrative fee will be refunded. If the course is cancelled by the registrant with fewer than six weeks before the start date, the deposit is non-refundable. However, $200 of the deposit can be credited towards a future course.

This course will have sessions in three locations.
