This DVD is intended to be a comprehensive reference source for conventional endodontic treatment and includes the following topics:

Rationale for Treatment

Appreciate how pulpal breakdown, disease flow and root canal systems impact the restorative practice.

Shaping Techniques

"Ruddle on Rotary" techniques allow you to safely and efficiently shape canals with emphasis on internal and external anatomy.

Patient Diagnosis

Learn the 3-step endo exam, how to identify pulpally involved teeth, and find the “pot of gold”.

Hydrodynamic Disinfection

Visualize how fluid activation encourages debridement and disinfection. Cleaning root canal systems promotes 3-D obturation.

Access Preparation

Achieve complete, straightline access to all orifices and create the opening for canal preparation.

3-D Obturation

Step-by-step techniques demonstrate how to predictably fill root canal systems using warm gutta percha methods.

Concepts & Strategies

Learn how to sequence the prep, establish working length, and consistently manage the glide path.

Coronal Restoration

Appreciate the importance of achieving the “rest of the seal” and how to properly finish successful endodontic treatment.
