Course Instructor: Dr. L. Stephen Buchanan
Course Availability: Ongoing
CE Units Offered: 1
Review Date: 07/01/2016
Expiration Date: 07/01/2019

Course Summary

In this written course, the author presents his theories and techniques for successfully negotiating around root canal impediments, and explains how to create shapes with adequate resistance form to produce optimum treatment results. 

Dr. Buchanan begins by discussing the 6 major types of impediments, and explains how to recognize an impediment during negotiation procedures, based on tactile clues. He goes on to describe his techniques for effectively traversing these challenges, and reviews the tools and methods necessary to be successful.

Immediate Core Buildup of Endodontically Treated Teeth (1 CE Unit)


Course Instructor: Dr. Denny W. Southard, AS, DDS, MSD
Course Availability: Ongoing
CE Units Offered: 1
Review Date: 07/01/2016
Expiration Date: 07/01/2019

Course Summary

According to the author, one of the primary objectives of endodontic therapy is to establish an adequate seal with root canal filling material. In this article, Dr. Southard discusses the benefits of performing immediate core buildups at the time of endodontic treatment and questions the notion that a root should be shaped differently than required for endodontic obturation to fit a prefabricated post.

Dr. Southard then presents the advantages and disadvantages of three direct buildup materials that are currently available. In each instance, he uses clinical cases to demonstrate all the techniques presented.

Root Canal Irrigation in Modern Endodontics, 1 & 2 (2 CE Units)


Course Instructor: Dr. Fillippo Santarcangelo
Course Availability: Ongoing
CE Units Offered: 2
Review Date: 07/01/2016
Expiration Date: 07/01/2019

Course Summary

Part 1 of this course begins by explaining the crucial role irrigation plays in determining the outcome of endodontic treatment. It goes on to explore what irrigants should be employed, and examines ideal methods for their use. The author then explains the necessity of leaving irrigants in the canal space for adequate time to allow them to work, providing clinical examples to illustrate this concept. Dr. Santarcangelo discusses current instruments used for delivery of irrigants before outlining his suggested step-by-step protocol for effective irrigation in routine cases.

In Part 2, the author begins by defining a complex case as one which cannot be mechanically treated all the way to the apex but can be treated biochemically in the last few millimeters. He continues by explaining his rationale and technique for treating complex anatomy with irrigants. Using numerous clinical examples, he describes how and why to use irrigants in these cases and concludes with his protocol for treating complex cases biochemically.

Obturation: Sealing the Root Canal System (1 CE Unit)


Course Instructor: William J. Nudera, DDS, MS
Course Availability: Ongoing
CE Units Offered: 1
Review Date: 07/01/2016
Expiration Date: 07/01/2019

Course Summary

This course reviews the purpose and goals of effective root canal obturation, and outlines several common obturation techniques, including recommended tools and products for each technique discussed. The author also addresses the benefits and drawbacks of various strategies and materials, and how to ideally use these methods to maximize success.

Dr. Nudera goes on to discuss techniques for removing excess gutta-percha following obturation, and to emphasize the importance of sealing the pulp chamber immediately once obturation is complete.

The author concludes with his recommendations for how to choose the appropriate obturation method for the case being treated. Ultimately, he encourages the reader to be competent with multiple obturation methods, in order to offer the patient the best possible outcome.

Endodontic Management of the Mandibular Second Molar


Course Instructor: Roger K. Warren, DDS
Course Availability: Ongoing
CE Units Offered: 1
Review Date: 07/01/2016
Expiration Date: 07/01/2019

Course Summary

The author’s goal in this course is to take a commonly treated tooth, the mandibular second molar and help the reader develop a mental map of this anatomy, then show how he uses this mental map to treat a mandibular second molar.

Dr. Warren begins by explaining the importance of developing a mental picture of the anatomy being treated, then summarizes the steps for mapping the canal configuration and reviews the various kinds anatomy typically found in mandibular second molars, from the most simple to the most complex. The author explains C-shaped canals in detail and shares some of the latest research on the treatment of this complex anatomy.

Finally, Dr. Warren presents a clinical case of a mandibular second molar with a C-shaped pulp chamber and explains the treatment performed, from pre-operative radiographs through obturation.

CE Units Offered: 1
Review Date: 07/01/2016
Expiration Date: 07/01/2019
Price: $12.00

Course Summary

In this course the author discusses his rules for treatment planning that help ensure successful endodontic outcomes and provide long-lasting results for the patient.

Dr. Buchanan begins by discussing “first order issues” that should guide the diagnosis and treatment planning process, outlining the top priorities a clinician should consider when making decisions about the procedure to follow.

The author concludes with a discussion of 3D digital technology and his assertion that new imaging tools will revolutionize the process of diagnosis and treatment in the future.
