Description:
This workshop will introduce attendees to the new electrical discharge machining (EDM) era of rotary instrumentation and the proper use in successful root canal therapy for the highly curved and the double-curved canal systems. Dr. Gray will detail the controlled memory thermomechanical processing and EDM for the manufacturing of rotary files, as well as how to establish a roadmap for customized instrumentation protocols with the HyFlex CM and EDM rotary files, even for the most challenging cases. Attendance is limited to 25.

Full Sponsor: COLTENE
Equipment Sponsor: COLTENE

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand the biological objectives of root canal treatment manipulation in relation to each anatomical challenge.
  • understand and appreciate the controlled memory thermomechanical processing and electrical discharge machining (EDM) for the manufacturing of rotary files and why this manufacturing is superior to milled nickle titanium.
  • establish a roadmap for customized instrumentation protocols with the HyFlex CM and EDM rotary files, even for the most challenging cases.
  • practice the suggested shaping protocol in highly curved and doubled-curved 3D printed molars with three or less rotary instruments.
  • achieve a 3D obturation of the prepared root canal system by using greater taper gutta-percha points in combination with a flowable gutta-percha.
