Course Description


This course is tailored for novice and experienced general dentists with comprehensive hands-on training. The program is full of honest tips, tricks and advise aimed at helping dentists perform better root canals, with less stress and more efficiency.
Topics will include endo diagnosis, anaesthesia, access preparations, safer and faster instrumentation, obturation, pain and infection management, single visit endo, and restoring endo treated teeth.

Under very close supervision, all workshop exercises will have participants trained on a variety of protocols, instrumentation and obturation systems.
Participants do NOT need to bring extracted teeth. Extracted and mounted teeth will be provided to all participants.

DAY ONE (Evening Lecture): Fundamentals in Endodontics
Participants will learn about:
- Endodontic diagnosis, including identifying symptoms of non-endo origin.
- Documentation / record keeping-keeping and informed consent.
- The role of 3D/CBCT imaging in endodontics.

- Anaesthesia in endodontics, including hot teeth.
- Ideal access preparations and locating calcified canals.
- How to locate and treat MB2 canals.
- Prevention and management of perforations.
- Canal/working-length determination with radiographs and apex locators.

DAY TWO (Morning workshop)
Participants will:
- Learn to perform endodontic access preparations on extracted teeth. (mounted teeth will be provided to all participants)
- Learn how to properly use electronic apex locators on real teeth.
- Workshop review, and question and answer period for the group.

DAY TWO (Afternoon lecture)
Participants will learn about:
- Ideal hand instrumentation with stainless steel files and glide path preparation (especially of calcified and curved canals).
- NiTi file instrumentation protocols (rotary and reciprocating).
- How to instrument more efficiently.
- Prevention and management of instrumentation mishaps (ledging and blocking of canals, and file separation)
- Disinfection of root canal system with various intra-canal meds, sonics and ultrasonics.
- Protocols for obturation (warm vertical and carrier-based) Obturating more efficiently, predictably and in 3-dimensions.
- Anaelgesics and antibiotics in endodontics.
- Newest endodontic materials, instruments and protocols, and which best suit and improve your practice.
- Restoring endo-treated teeth.

DAY THREE (Morning workshop)
Participants will:
- Learn how to properly use hand stainless steel files, glidepath NiTi files, and rotary and reciprocating NiTi file systems.
- Negotiate canals (including calcified and curved canals).
- All instrumented and obturated cases will be radiographed to assist in self-assessment.
- Learn about efficient four-handed endodontics by means of chairside exercises. (dental assistants are welcome to participate)
- Radiographic review and assessment of participants’ instrumented and obturated teeth.
- Workshop review and question and answer period for the group.

DAY THREE (Afternoon lecture)
Participants will learn about:
- One vs. two appointment root canals (when, how and why).
- The significance of magnification (loupes and microscopes) in endodontics, and how to incorporate them into your practice.
- Post-op pain and infection management (anaelgesics and antibiotics in endodontics)
- Restoring endo-treated teeth, including the use of posts.
- How to select the instruments that suit your style of practice (ie files, obturators, endo motors, apex locators…)
- Return on investment of various endodontic instruments.
- Review of clinical cases so as to highlight reasons for endodontic success and failures.
- Recap of entire program and question and answer.

Participants are welcome to:
- bring radiographs of their endodontic cases for a private one-on-one review and discussion with Dr. Haas.
- bring their chairside assistant/s to be trained on ideal and efficient four-handed endodontics.
