Aims and Learning objectives
  • To apply an evidence-based approach to clinical decision-making in failed endodontic cases
  • To introduce reliable techniques for the removal of coronal restorations
  • Develop technical skills to predictably remove commonly used root filling materials
  • Develop the necessary diagnostic and treatment planning skills to facilitate root canal retreatment
  • Perform shaping of root canals after existing root fillings have been removed
  • Practice the use of magnification (loupes and microscope) in non-surgical retreatment.
Learning content

Clinicians often encounter endodontically treated teeth which are failing. Most of these failed primary cases can be successfully retreated non-surgically. This intensive full-day workshop offers personalised, high-level hands-on training for general dentists in the management of non-surgical endodontic retreatment procedures. We are privileged to have Consultant in Endodontics at Guy’s Hospital, London, Bhavin Bhuva as our keynote speaker, with additional clinical supervisors to ensure optimal participant to supervisor ratios.

With current advances in equipment and materials, including CBCT, ultrasonics, rotary endodontics and magnification, we can now predictably manage compromised teeth. Mr Bhuva will provide an overview of the rationale for root canal retreatment, prognosis and other considerations which will impact treatment planning. The relevant techniques and appropriate strategies for coronal disassembly of teeth requiring root canal retreatment will be discussed.
