The Secrets of SafeSider Endodontics
How and why the SafeSider approach to endodontics will allow you to do more with endodontics, making it safer, quicker and less expensive.
This course is FREE and good for 2 ADA CE Credits. Light food and refreshments will be served.(Continued)
Two Kase Studies
SafeSider instrumentation produces minimal tooth structure reduction with maximal cleaning of the canals by internal routing causing targeted instrumentation of the buccal and lingual walls in this case. Not the indiscriminate 360 degree centered instrumentation that is associated with rotary techniques. Single cone obturation with EZfill to complete the case.
Simple 2nd premolar? Not so much. A scan and a scope revealed an apical split. A bit of effort and determination with SafeSiders and we get a great result! Pre bending the instrument tip with hand placement to facilitate negotiating each apical canal is the key.

Kase of the Month - Root Amputation Procedure
What would you do if a patient presented with a failing root canal retreatment or a failing apicoectomy?
Dental Root Amputation Procedure
Dental root amputation is described as the surgical removal of one of the roots of a multi-rooted tooth. This procedure is carried out to remove disease, to prevent further bone loss and/or to remove part of the tooth that has a tooth fracture. This procedure is indicated in patients that present with a failing root canal retreatment (RCT) or a failing apicoectomy. This option is worth exploring if a patient wants to save their tooth. Dental root amputation may prolong the viability of a tooth for a few years. Case selection is of utmost importance prior to performing this procedure. Long-term survival rate of a resected tooth is 83% at five years and 68% at ten years. Lower molars usually fail due to root fracture while the upper molars usually fail due to periodontal breakdown progression.(Continued)
New Internal Bleaching Solution Making Endo Easier
Dr Amy Dukoff with be presenting at our office on the proper Application of E-Rinse White for Internal Bleaching at our office on October 4th - 6:30PM It removes the dirt & debri & organic material from within the dentin;
- Aids in removing pulpal tissue trapped in the pulpal calcifications.
- Aids in removing the trapped dirt and stains and dead tissue from under the pulpal calcifications
- Facilitates locating the pulpal orifices by removing the unwanted pulpal debri, dirt, stains, tissue in order to improve the illumination - the way light passes through the dentinal tubules- improving visibility inside the tooth.
