What to expect

This event will develop an understanding of the complications associated with fractured instruments in endodontic treatment and how they can be overcome.

The lecture will explore an evidence-based approach to clinical decision-making in failed endodontic cases. It will introduce reliable techniques for the removal of coronal restorations and help develop skills to remove commonly used root filling materials and diagnostic and treatment planning skills to facilitate root canal retreatment. As a hands-on workshop it will also allow delegates to practice the use of magnification in non-surgical retreatment procedures.
