Demystifying Molar Endodontics 2020


Molar endodontics often present with various challenges to the clinician. These may include difficulty in isolation, access preparation, negotiation of curved/calcified canals, disinfection and obturation. Therefore, this course is designed for dental practitioners who wish to perform molar endodontics with higher confidence and predictable clinical outcome. It will focus on a systematic clinical diagnostic and treatment protocol in the endodontic management of molar teeth with minimal to moderate difficulty.

The first part (15th-17th May 2020) of the course includes three days of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on workshops on extracted teeth highlighting the benefits of illumination/magnification using operating microscopes, ultrasonics, advanced rotary canal preparation, newer irrigation devices, thermoplasticised obturation techniques/systems and latest bulkfil materials to achieve predictable coronal seal.

The second part (2 August 2020) includes 4 mentoring sessions, case based learning, reflection and discussion.

Certificate of attendance with CPD points will be provided at end of the course.

To be eligible for a certificate of successful completion of training in molar endodontics, participants will submit a reflective report of 1 completed case for assessment.
