In the early 1960s, Dr. Herbert Schilder ingeniously created the warm gutta percha with vertical condensation technique. Thirty years later, significant numbers of well-trained dentists continue to select this obturation technique because it is simple, efficient, effective, and routinely fills root canals in three dimensions.
In this Just-In-Time segment, Dr. Ruddle will graphically present the step-by-step sequence of the Vertical Condensation Technique. Topics include:
- Root canal system anatomy
- Fitting the master cone
- Selecting the pluggers
