Program I: Pre-Symposium Workshop 1

3D Endodontics improving shaping, cleaning and obturation procedures

Date 1 May 2019

Time: 08.00 am – 05.00 pm

Speaker Professor Gianluca Gambarini 

Endodontic Faculty Staff


Course Details: The recent development of 3D diagnostic devices (CBCT) is not only improving clinical diagnosis and treatment planning in endodontics, but it’s showing the hidden anatomy of root canal systems, and influencing concepts and current trends in endodontic procedures.

Such findings are also supported by many in vitro studies with micro-CT analysis, which clearly show that we need to improve the quality of our operative techniques, mainly by understanding root canal anatomy in three dimension and selecting those materials and protocols which are best suited for such anatomical complexities.

The course will describe a novel three dimensional approach showing the ideal requirements for correctly addressing the root canal anatomy (3D shaping) and those new techniques which can improve performance and safety. The need for improved final irrigation techniques will be also described, mainly aiming at addressing those non-instrumented areas (irregularities, fins, isthmus, etc) inside complex anatomies, which cannot be reached by instruments, but ideally should be cleaned and disinfected. The principles and techniques for 3D obturation will be also discussed.
