We will not overlook the forecasting of retreatments and present you with an author's solution scheme based on Fabio Gorni's research.
An important part of the course will be the discussion of apical surgery and its relationship to retreatment. We will examine the peculiarities of modern microsurgical procedures, their advantages and disadvantages, risks, and prognosis of the procedures. You will receive a biological rationale for decision-making and learn about the role of CBCT in treatment planning.
We will also introduce you to a clinical decision-making algorithm based on the Schätzle-Friedman scheme with author's additions.
As part of this course, we will also delve into the technical aspects of retreatment. You will learn about retreatment through the crown, the procedure for removing a crown/bridge (Metalift), and the removal of anchor pins, whether they are metal or fiber-reinforced. We will explore various clinical retreatment techniques, such as the use of gutta-percha, carrier-based gutta-percha (Termafil, Softcore), phosphate cement, resorcinol formalin, silver pins, pastes, and other materials. We will also discuss the necessary instruments, chemical preparations, and clinical nuances, providing you with examples and recommendations.
The next topic we will shed light on is broken instruments. I will offer you a clinical decision-making scheme based on several factors, such as tooth vitality, stage of canal cleaning, and the location of the broken instrument. You will learn about various methods of removing broken instruments and their detailed dissection.
In addition, we will provide you with an overview of ultrasonic devices and tips used in endodontics. You will learn about the principles of operation and application of devices such as Spartan (MTS) with CPR tips, EMS/Sybroendo (minipiezon) with RT1, RT2, RT3 tips, Satellec (P5, Newtron) with ET20, ET(D)40, ET25, K10/21/25, S04 tips, Osada (Enac) with ST17, ST21 tips, NSK (Varios) with E7, E6 tips, Proultra tips, B&L tips. We will discuss ultrasound techniques, clinical recommendations, and the compatibility of tip diameters.
And the final topic we will discuss is perforations. We will examine the modern classification of perforations, factors influencing prognosis, treatment methods, and the analysis of materials used for treatment, such as IRM, SuperEBA, MTA (ProRoot, MTA-Angelus, MM-MTA).
Throughout the course, we will not only cover all the aforementioned topics but also provide you with the comprehensive information necessary for successfully mastering endodontic practice. You will have access to relevant clinical examples, detailed analyses of each group of pathologies, as well as practical recommendations and modern treatment techniques.
Our goal is to help you develop the skills and knowledge that will enable you to effectively address the technical challenges associated with root canal retreatment. We strive to make your endodontic practice more successful and provide you with the tools to achieve high treatment outcomes.
Don't miss the opportunity to become an expert in endodontics and provide optimal treatment to your patients.
We look forward to seeing you in our course!
