Micro-Endodontic Management of Endodontic Challenges Using Predictable Protocols: An Evidence Based Clinical Guide
Dr. Ahmed Shawky, MSc, PhD Endodontics – Egypt
Daily Clinical Endodontic Practice encounter a lot of challenges which escalate the difficulty of endodontic cases to an extreme level. Of these challenges, the presence of chamber floor perforations, presence of intra-canal broken instruments, and the presence of open apices and immature roots. An Endodontic Clinician should possess an updated knowledge about the contemporary protocols used to manage these challenges aiming at favourable and predictable patient-centered clinical outcomes. These management protocols have been made feasible and predictable owing to the use of the Dental Operating Microscope (DOM), which became an essentiality and not a luxury in modern endodontic practice.
This advanced endodontic workshop will discuss in details the use of micro-endodontic techniques and protocol for management of clinical endodontic challenges including; repair of furcation perforations using calcium silicate materials [Mineral trioxide aggregate], Clinical management protocols of canal transportations and ledges, management of intra-canal separated instruments-whether using either bypass or retrieval protocol-in a predictable, way as well as management of open apices or immature roots using MA apical plugs [MTA apexification] and the use of regenerative endodontic procedures for revitalization of immature teeth with necrotic pulps and apical periodontitis.
Through this advanced workshop, the candidate will get exposed to the most recent materials, instruments and technologies use in the above-mentioned clinical challenges
- Manipulate the Dental Operating Microscope as well as Magnifying loupes in various clinical endodontic situations
- Diagnose, prevent, and seal iatrogenic chamber floor perforations using calcium silicate materials [Bioceramics]
- Diagnose, prevent, prepare and manage root canal transportations [ledges]
- Analyse, manage intra-canal broken instruments using “Bypass Protocol”
- Analyse , plan the treatment protocol for retrieval of Broken instruments
- Plan the treatment for management of immature roots and open apices using MTA apical plugs or regenerative endodontic treatments
