CLEANING AND SHAPING OR…SHAPING TO CLEAN!  HOW TO MASTER TECHNOLOGY TO ACHIEVE ROOT CANAL CLEANING AND DISINFECTING EFFICIENCY

Dr. Carlos Spironelli Ramos

Prerequisites: None

Time: On Demand

Pricing: FREE

Proper cleaning and shaping of the canal space are prerequisite for achieving clinical success in Endodontics. The endodontic literature is replete with evidence of the earnest work of many investigators into the challenges of managing root canal infection and periapical disease. However, there is no optimal, standardized, universally accepted protocol for root canal irrigation/disinfection. In this course, Dr. Carlos Ramos will review, discuss, and identify requirements for clinically successful root canal irrigation/disinfection as well as ways to avoid the potentially adverse effects of some “contemporary” techniques. Join Dr. Ramos to discover how incorporating concepts proved by endodontics’ research and available for general practitioners that allow clinicians to successfully treat the vast majority of cases with predictable results.

The objectives of this course are for the participant to be able to:

  • Identify the role of irrigation in the root canal treatment outcomes
  • Compare results regarding manual and ultrasonic-based irrigation methods
  • Identify the different approaches of ultrasonic activation/irrigation
  • Determine a streamlined protocol for irrigation.

    The Importance of Physiologic Based Dentistry

    LVI Global Six Part Webinar Series-$99 for entire series or $49 per episode

     

    Don’t miss this webinar series on the Importance of Physiologic Based Dentistry. Physiologic Based science is a broad and all encompassing approach to finding the stable physiologic neutral zone. Historically occlusal theories focused on the hard tissue structures in the system but lacked comprehensive perspective to be able to create predictable outcomes. With the inclusion of the soft tissue analysis along with the hard tissue science, we can arrive at an objective and complete analysis of the entire system including musculature and bone and teeth to create a stable result from multiple perspectives, including posture of the head, neck, body, and jaws. In addition, the muscular balance will create better occlusal stability and long term restorative or orthodontic/orthopedic stability as well as enhanced esthetics for the patient. The continuing education offered at LVI is designed to improve the lives of patients and enhance professional satisfaction.
