Complex Endodontic Treatment: Planning and Diagnosis
This comprehensive course is intended for general dentists to better understand how modern technology and advances can help maintain teeth once thought to be hopeless. It will demonstrate the value of microscopic dentistry along with CBCT imaging to access problems and how to better treat these complex cases. Most of the cases are more complicated than the usual endodontic referral to a specialist. But it is the hope that after this presentation, dentists will be able to use new options to better help themselves and their patients
- Understand How to Read Radiographs
- Appreciate the value of a 3D Image
- Know what treatment options are available outside of the conventional wisdom
This course is good fro 2 Free ADA CE Credits. Light food and refreshments will be served.(Continued)
E-RINSE BRITE: New Solution for Internal Bleaching and Tooth whitening
E-RINSE BRITE: New Solution for Internal Bleaching: and Tooth whitening

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.
This Course is FREE and good for 2 ADA CE Credits!!
