Simplifying Endodontics for Greater Predictability and Ease of Treatment

Price: $19.95 
Item # L0784  

Release Date: September 21, 2016

Expiration Date: September 20, 2019

 

Advances in the endodontic arena have elevated the quality of endodontic treatment that can be provided and have improved the long-term prognosis for the teeth treated. Rotary instrumentation, when introduced in the 1990s, enabled the standardization of canal preparations. Newly developed reciprocating files have improved upon traditional rotary files with respect to increased cyclic fatigue resistance and reduction in fracture. More recently, adhesive dentistry has moved into the endodontic realm with obturation materials that resist leakage. Bioceramic materials show promise in improving root canal sealing and reducing bacterial microleakage. Primary root canal therapy can expect a success rate of between 75.6% and 92.5%, depending on the preoperative status of the pulp. The desire for 100% successful endodontics has led to the development of new materials and methods. Each product is designed to help reduce treatment complications and improve outcomes.

This basic-level course discusses the importance of proper isolation and appropriate pre-access buildups. Proper access for endodontic treatment is also explained. The course describes effective strategies for cleaning and shaping the root canal system, followed by an outlining of the principles of obturation. The importance of the coronal restoration and access sealing for successful endodontic treatment is explained. Finally, the course brings all of these elements together in a case scenario, which, though it cannot cover all contingencies, can help the general dentist, as well as dental hygienists and dental assistants, to understand the basics of root canal therapy and the strategies involved in improving endodontic outcomes.

Dental phobia may be a universal barrier to seeking oral health care. Dental phobics are not comfortable seeking regular dental care, even when dental problems arise. The dental team needs to be aware of the concerns of this population in order to reduce fear and anxiety and provide needed oral health care.

This basic-level course distinguishes between the definitions of fear, anxiety, and phobia. It identifies the most common reactions that accompany phobias and common reasons for avoidance of dental treatment. The course describes the behavioral treatment options for anxious dental patients and techniques for reducing general anxiety in dental patients. This course will provide dental professionals with basic knowledge and information on dental fear and avoidance that will enable them to diagnose and manage patients who experience dental-related anxiety, fear, and phobia. This knowledge will help dental professionals prepare for these patients and their unique needs and help these patients feel more comfortable seeking their care in the future.
