Current Shifts in Endodontic Technologies:Irrigation Devices and Solutions

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will:
»      Discuss the anatomical complexities of root canal systems and the historical limitations of our clinical techniques to fully cleanse these convoluted spaces.
»      Describe the mechanism of action and clinical usage of the latest endodontic irrigation technologies: irrigation needle tips, ultrasonic activated irrigation and apical negative pressure irrigation.
»      Evaluate the literature-based evidence for the clinical efficacy of each irrigation method.
»      Discuss how each doctor can assess which irrigation technique and technology is most practical for their own practice setting.

Supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Vista

Abstract

This webinar will take you on a journey to discover the intricate complexity of root canal system anatomy and how to best approach cleaning it with irrigation. We will cover why the classic method of needle irrigation is not the ideal method of delivery in current day practice. The latest advances in irrigation solutions and the device technologies that best deliver them will be discussed. Evidence basis will support the usage, mechanism of action and clinical implementation of ultrasonic activated irrigation and apical negative pressure irrigation methods. A discussion on how to decide which technology is practical for your practice will complete our presentation.
