Azure and Amber: The Endostar colours that best adapt to the different root canal anatomies and the different needs of endodontists

Endodontics has developed rapidly in recent years, showing a profound transformation especially at the instrumental level with the introduction of constantly evolving materials and operating methods. All this has created a new and extensive reality that has generated a lot of enthusiasm and placed everyone in front of the need to broaden their knowledge. The achievement of predictable results and with increasing success rates also depends on new techniques and the availability of new materials, as well as on the deep knowledge and ability to formulate correct diagnoses and therefore precise treatment plans.
Once the access has been prepared, the anatomy analyzed and the apex located, the next challenge for the endodontist is to select the correct file and the best sequence of files to shape the canal safely and without procedural errors.
The report will demonstrate the benefits of Easy path and E3 Azure instruments (by Endostar) and highlight the possibility of tailoring the sequence of files to canal anatomy and specific case difficulties, for optimal canal shaping and with a high safety level.

Flare-ups, incidence and pain, non-surgical retreatment with REvision, how to manage?

Flare-ups are defined by postoperative occurrence or exaggeration of intense pain and/or swelling after the initiation of endodontic treatment that leads to an unscheduled appointment.
Flare-ups are disruptive events for patients and clinicians. Patients with flare-ups must abandon their routine life schedule to address the intense pain. Clinicians must quickly fit these patients into their daily schedule, which can strain their clinical resources. The occurrence of flare-up can negatively impact the relationship between patient and clinician because the patient’s expectation, which was improvement in their overall pain, was not met. This is especially important in cases with mild or no symptoms at the baseline. Clinicians could also become stressed because they failed to “predict” and “prevent” this event. Management of flare-ups can be complicated. If the pain is not relieved or managed quickly, the frustrated patient may decide to have the tooth extracted.

EBD basics and their practical application

Evidence Based Dentistry (EBD) is dentistry based on facts and scientific evidence. Repeatable and predictable medical procedures should combine two equally important issues: a solid theoretical foundation based on the analysis of results from the scientific research and their implementation in clinical conditions, in a way optimized for a given situation. This lecture will introduce participants with the methods of analyzing scientific data, including topics related to, among others: searching for appropriate sources of knowledge, the reader’s cognitive errors and determining the degree of risk of bias or conflict of interest in scientific research. The lecture also aims to facilitate the capture of key information of practical importance for clinicians. The lecture will cover the basics of EBD and a thorough analysis of the literature on devices used to active irrigation of the endodontic system – as an example of the practical use of the discussed EBD principles.

Access – should we be minimally invasive?

Introducing dental microscope to our practice enables performing treatment through a small, conservative access. CBCT let us learn about anatomy of the tooth before treatment, which helps, for example, to find additional canals. Improvements of NiTi alloy and the design of mechanical files helps to prepare canals according to their original path with lower risk of breakage. Modern irrigation techniques including ultrasounds and lasers make disinfection of endodontic space more efficient without excessive enlargement.
Is it possible with all of the techniques mentioned above to perform efficient, predictable canal treatment through conservative access?
Wouldn’t using minimally invasive approach hinder achieving the most basic goal of endodontic treatment, which is good cleaning, shaping and obturation.
The author during the lecture will provide a critical analysis of the modern trend in endodontics concerning conservative access and preparation of canals.

Long, short or just right? The new Apex Locator of 3rd generation to determine an accurate working length in Endodontics

The success of endodontic treatment is dependent on the complete elimination of the contents of the root canal system and the sealing of all the pathways that communicate between the endodontium and the periodontium. In other words, the final result of the endodontic treatment must be the same as that which would have been obtained by the extraction of a compromised tooth. So, it is obvious that the knowledge of the endodontic anatomy with all its possible variations and the correct determination of the working length are extremely important, so that during the course of the treatment not even the smallest portions of the canal system are forgotten. The methods currently available to the clinician for measuring the correct working length are numerous and comprise tactile sensitivity, radiographic examination, the consistent drying point and today the latest generation apex locators to work at the “Electronic Apex”. The above mentioned four methods don’t exclude one another, on the contrary they should be used in association with each other. In the course of the presentation a thorough revision of the literature will be made and the various methods will be explained, showing the advantages and limitations of each one and the advantages derived from their combined use. The 3rd generation of Apex Locators is extremely precise, it is not influenced by the content of the root canal and it has been specifically designed not to locate the “constriction” but the “foramen”, since it is based on the thikness of the surrounding dentin.
