    How to manage broken instruments?


    NiTi instruments fracture, more than 90 % of them fracture in the apical third of the canal, which makes it very frustrating and challenging for a clinician to retrieve them. Above all, instrument fracture immediately hinders the clinician from performing further treatment, and thus the outcome of the treatment will be compromised.

    The majority of clinicians would not want to make an attempt to retrieve the broken file in consideration of possibilities of having procedural accidents during the retrieval attempts mainly because instrument retrieval may not be predictable. In addition, the disadvantages of traditional instrument removal techniques are excessive removal of dentin during trephine, which may result in perforation or predispose the tooth to vertical root fracture.

    However, the literature shows that the success rates of instrument retrieval with ultrasonics are relatively higher in the range of 80 to 90 %. If the whole procedure for instrument retrieval can be standardized and simply predictable, it will be no longer frustrating and challenging for every clinician. Therefore in my IFEA webinar, I would like to show everyone how to make it predictable to remove broken file so that everyone can stay happy and even enjoy removing the broken file.

    How to interpret preoperative endodontic anatomy in clinical practice


    Diagnostic imaging is an essential component of the preoperative diagnosis which the operator must devote the utmost attention: if the diagnosis is wrong the outcome will be negative even if the endodontic therapy is technically performed excellently.

    A complete understanding of endodontic anatomy before starting treatment is very useful to get a positive outcome of the therapy. The cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is the most important innovation in diagnostic imagining in endodontics; CBCT offers great advantages compared to the traditional two-dimensional examination thanks to the three-dimensional visualization of the periradicular and endodontic space, allowing the clinician to identify a possible periapical pathology and the perfect visualization of the real anatomy endodontic thus providing the necessary information for the correct endodontic approach.

    How many colleagues have a CBCT in their practices? If it is true that CBCT should be the “standard of care” for the endodontic anatomy preoperative investigation, it is equally true that a few percentage of dentists have a CBCT in the office, and sometimes it is difficult to refer a patient for CBCT when there is no doubt for the diagnosis but just to understand the endodontic anatomy.

    In most cases, the operator must interpret the endodontic anatomy with a correct reading of the traditional 2D radiograph thanks to the knowledge of the anatomy of the root canal system; in the absence of diagnostic doubt the use of the CBCT solely for the anatomy endodontic visualization is a biological high cost for the patient in terms of radiation exposure and even an additional therapy cost. The aim of this lecture is to highlight how in most cases a correct understanding of the endodontic anatomy is possible thanks to a correct reading of the traditional 2D radiograph and how the operator can make a rational and synergistic use of 2D and 3D imaging in order to provide the best service to the patient with the least possible biological cost.

    Microbiology of apical periodontitis: What clinicians should know


    Apical periodontitis is known as the periapical host-immune response to the existence of opportunistic microbes as biofilm within the root canal system. The response of host-immune system to microbial biofilm is distinctly different to their planktonic counterpart. Different clinical presentations are also possible when they are associated with a chronic disease. This lecture will cover the evolving perspectives of root canal biofilm in disease and post treatment healing.

    Management of challenging clinical scenarios with calcium silicate-based materials


    As endodontists, our labor goes beyond the limits of the root canal system, each one of our treatments is intended to restore, or to maintain patients’ oral health. From an optimistic point of view, endodontist´s advisable goal should be a first step intervention focused in a conservative treatment of pulp disease. Nevertheless, when it is not possible to maintain the pulpo-dentinal complex alive, to perform root canal treatments without compromising the biological balance becomes a key challenge to overcome. The main goal of the lecture is to present scientifically based clinical techniques, applied with the new generation of biomaterials with the objective of restoring or maintaining the harmony in patients` oral environment.

    How to manage the anatomical complexities of the root canal system


    Every root canal system presents challenges to the full range of ideal treatment. Two of the most common challenges revolve around the elusive “mid-mesial canal” found in both the mesial-buccal root of the maxillary molars and the mesial roots of mandibular molars. Not to be outdone, however, is the apical 3-5 mm of each root in its display of accessory communications, and the inherent challenges of cleaning and disinfection primarily in roots of teeth with necrotic pulps and periapical lesions. This presentation will highlight the challenges in management presented in both anatomical scenarios.

    Upon completion of the lecture, the participant should be able to:

    1. Identify the true nature of the challenges encountered in both anatomical scenarios
    2. Detail and discuss clinical techniques advocated to manage these challenges
    3. Describe the anatomical and microbiological ramifications that these two challenges present
    4. Relate the dictates that are advocated in managing these complexities to the current literature and the validity of such
    5. Identify, generically, materials and instruments that may be helpful to address these complexities in most teeth

    Ghassan Yared


    Prof. Yared completed his endodontic training at the University Paris VII (France) and obtained his M.Sc. from the Lebanese University (Lebanon). He has been extensively involved in teaching. He was the Head of the Department of Research and a member of the Department of Endodontics at the Lebanese University, Lebanon. He joined the University of Toronto, Canada in 1999 for a full-time position as the Director of the Endodontic Undergraduate Programme. He was granted tenure in 2004.

    He has been elected for 4 consecutive years as the "Best Teacher of the Year", and has received the "Master Bruce Howard Award for Excellence in Teaching" the highest teaching award at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto.

    He is the inventor of the single file endodontics and asymmetrical mechanical reciprocation, the basis of modern reciprocation. His research is currently focussed on root canal disinfection. He has just introduced a new concept for the management of root canals with a non instrumentation technique. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed international endodontic journals and has given numerous lectures and continuous education courses worldwide.

    How to handle acute canal curvatures


    The preparation of severely curved canals involves 3 steps: Initial canal negotiation with small hand files, creation of a glide path and canal shaping. The last step, canal shaping, becomes easy once a glide path has been established. Once a glide path is created, it is likely that all modern endodontic files used in continuous rotation or reciprocation will be equally effective for canal shaping.

    However, the first 2 steps, especially the initial canal negotiation can be very challenging. Small hand files used for the initial canal negotiation are associated with a higher incidence of procedural errors. In addition, glide path instruments have a relatively high fracture rate. A procedure that depends less on these 2 steps for the canal preparation will be easier and safer.

    All of the systems present on the market for canal preparation, except for Reciproc and Reciproc blue (Reciproc®), involve the challenging steps of initial canal negotiation and glide path preparation in every canal. With Reciproc® , the majority of the canals, including narrow and curved canals, can be managed with only one reciprocating instrument without any prior instrumentation: without initial canal negotiation and glide path preparation. This presentation will discuss the scientific evidence supporting the efficiency and safety of the Reciproc®.Techniques for the management of severely curved canals will be described in detail taking into consideration different clinical scenarios.

    The attendees will understand:

    1. The challenges and risks associated with the different steps of the preparation of severely curved canals, mainly the initial canal negotiation and glide path preparation
    2. The causes of fracture of hand files and mechanical NiTi instruments
    3. The similarities and differences between conventional systems, requiring initial canal negotiation and glidepath, and Reciproc®, and why it is possible to use Reciproc® without any prior instrumentation for the preparation of severely curved canals
    4. The management of severely curved root canals with Reciproc®: rational, technique and limitations
    5. The indications and how to create a glide path before Reciproc® in specific cases
    6. The indications and how to use small hand files for the initial canal negotiation
    7. The rational of the referral to an endodontist, when required
    8. The strong scientific evidence supporting the safety and efficiency of Reciproc
    9. The importance of cleaning and disinfection, and future directions

    Evolution of Root Canal Treatment: TruNatomy. A Restoratively Driven Path to Endodontic Excellence


    In addition to the conventional understanding of endodontic success determined by apical health, it has become evident that long-term retention is an important measure for the effectiveness of root canal treatments.

    Underpinning this strategy, TruNatomy is an innovative root canal treatment system built on the understanding that endodontic excellence will follow a restoratively driven path. TruNatomy allows a comprehensive and flexible treatment solution that preserves the structural integrity of the tooth and adapts to all your clinical situations.

    The system includes five innovative rotary instruments with a distinctive offset cross section and new advanced heat treatment, which provides excellent canal tracking and durability. TruNatomy provides a reproducible cantered glide path while the unique sizing promotes desired apical sizes without unnecessary coronal enlargement with just two or three instruments. The TruNatomy system offers a new flexible irrigation cannula, fitted gutta percha, electric heat plugger tip and paper points.

    This presentation is designed to introduce, in details, the new system by Dentsply Sirona and describe its features and use, combining excellent canal debridement with a smooth effortless feeling while shaping canals of all types of anatomy.

    Objectives
    At conclusion participants should be able to

    1. Highlight the relevance of restorability and restoration on endodontic outcomes
    2. Describe design elements and usage of the new TruNatomy system
    3. Apply clinically the principle of dentin preservation while promoting canal debridement

    Evidence-based tips for improving root canal treatment outcomes PART I


    A revolution in the tools available for delivering root canal treatment over the last 2-3 decades has enabled dentists to produce technically excellent results. A further revolution in the debridement options over the last 1-2 decades should have enabled enhanced global treatment outcomes. However, the list of general dental practitioners’ problems in root canal treatment has remained unaltered, together with the success rates, for over a century! True to the history of root canal treatment, the biological considerations have lagged behind in the practitioner’s consciousness, as stated almost a 100 years ago:

    “We are not trained to think in terms of biological concepts but we are to act in mechanical procedures” (Noyes 1922).

    Practical tips (delivered in the right frame of reference) might ease the technique but only cognitive insight can enhance intra-operative decision-making to facilitate predictable treatment, delivered with confidence.

    The dentist must understand the problem, know how to solve it and be able to skillfully execute treatment; these triumvirate requisites must be practically-embedded and cognitively-integrated to achieve success.

    This presentation distils multiple strands of evidence (biological, clinical, technical, mechanical, chemical) to describe a coherent picture of the sequence of events during root canal treatment, from the disease entity to its prevention or cure, and predictable long-term tooth survival.

    It will address the biological rationale, implications of biofilms, nature of antimicrobial interaction leading to bacterial killing or survival, the problem of fluid dynamics and apical anatomy, why periapical lesions take so long to heal, and why others take even longer, whilst some fail to heal. It will also highlight why patients sometimes complain, despite technically adequate treatment that the tooth does not “feel right” or continues to exhibit discomfort.

    The lecture should establish a clear biological perspective to the technical aspects of the root canal treatment procedure, leading to a rationale for it how it works and why certain practical steps are key and cannot be overlooked. Ultimately, periapical healing is not enough, the tooth must last and maintain periapical health. This requires insight about tooth properties, restoration design, occlusal forces and technical skills in manipulating restorative materials. Root canal treatment may weaken teeth but such effects may be mitigated.

    Succinct overall aims and learning objectives
    Aim
    The lecture will synthesize biological, clinical and technical evidence on the nature and problems of apical periodontitis and its prevention or cure, root canal treatment.

    Learning outcomes
    Participants should gain a familiarity, if not an understanding, of the nature of periapical disease and how root canal treatment works. They should understand the context of the practical steps and their importance in enhancing periapical disease prevention or healing. The management of restorative status and patient expectations are key for ultimate patient satisfaction.

    “We are not trained to think in terms of biological concepts but we are to act in mechanical procedures” (Noyes 1922).

    Practical tips (delivered in the right frame of reference) might ease the technique but only cognitive insight can enhance intra-operative decision-making to facilitate predictable treatment, delivered with confidence.

    The dentist must understand the problem, know how to solve it and be able to skillfully execute treatment; these triumvirate requisites must be practically-embedded and cognitively-integrated to achieve success.

    This presentation distils multiple strands of evidence (biological, clinical, technical, mechanical, chemical) to describe a coherent picture of the sequence of events during root canal treatment, from the disease entity to its prevention or cure, and predictable long-term tooth survival.

    It will address the biological rationale, implications of biofilms, nature of antimicrobial interaction leading to bacterial killing or survival, the problem of fluid dynamics and apical anatomy, why periapical lesions take so long to heal, and why others take even longer, whilst some fail to heal. It will also highlight why patients sometimes complain, despite technically adequate treatment that the tooth does not “feel right” or continues to exhibit discomfort.

    Succinct overall aims and learning objectives
    Aim
    The lecture will synthesize biological, clinical and technical evidence on the nature and problems of apical periodontitis and its prevention or cure, root canal treatment.

    Learning outcomes
    Participants should gain a familiarity, if not an understanding, of the nature of periapical disease and how root canal treatment works. They should understand the context of the practical steps and their importance in enhancing periapical disease prevention or healing. The management of restorative status and patient expectations are key for ultimate patient satisfaction.

    Dental Traumatic Injuries – Revised Guidelines for Management


    The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) first published Guidelines for the management of traumatic dental injuries in 2001. They were then revised and published in 2007 and again in 2012. Now the IADT’s Expert Committees have once again revised the Guidelines and they will be published in Dental Traumatology in August 2020.

    The latest Guidelines consist of four articles. The first article presents general information relevant to all traumatic dental injuries. The second article covers the management of avulsed teeth and the third covers the management of fractures and luxation injuries of permanent teeth. The final article covers injuries to the primary teeth. The Guidelines have been based on the best available evidence following extensive reviews of the literature, along with the expert opinions of the committee members who come from a wide variety of speciality backgrounds.

    The main aim of the Guidelines is to provide readers with easy to access information that can be consulted when faced with a traumatic dental injury. In particular, they outline the emergency management of the various injuries and they have some general information for follow-up management and the possible outcomes. This lecture will summarise the Guidelines to provide practitioners with an update on the management of traumatic dental injuries.

    How to clean the pulp space predictably


    This lecture will focus on how to render chemical root canal debridement simple and effective. At the core of cleaning, there is mechanical instrumentation to the proper length that is dictated by the progress of infection. Apart from that, the potentially infected pulp/dentin wound needs to be cleaned chemically. It has become clear over the years that NaOCl is the core chemical to be used for that purpose.

    Recent data show that NaOCl is highly effective in the lavage of exposed pulps in teeth with deep caries. Moreover, delivered in an endodontic irrigant, NaOCl uniquely dissolves biofilm and necrotic soft tissue remnants. Furthermore, it can bleach blood-derived stains in dentin. What NaOCl does not do, however, is to prevent “dentin mud” or, more precisely, inorganic debris and smear layer from accumulating during mechanical root canal preparation.

    NaOCl does not condition the root canal wall for optimal sealer adhesion either. To this end, decalcifying agents are necessary. Traditionally, EDTA or citric acid solutions were used to dissolve smear layer and accumulated hard tissue debris. In this lecture, it will be discussed why a molecule used in the cosmetics and dishwashing industry, namely 1-hydroxyethane 1,1-diphosphonic acid (HEDP), could be advantageous also in endodontics.

He is a scientific reviewer for all the top endodontic journals and serves as a nominated member on American Association of Endodontist’s Research and Scientific Affairs Committee.

    How to locate calcified canals predictably using 3D Dynamic Navigation


    Endodontist’s quest for safer, less invasive, and more cost-efficient procedures has come a long way and continues to move forward at an unprecedented pace. The increased diagnostic information provided with the advent of Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has been proven to provide more accurate diagnosis and improved decision making for the management of complex endodontic problems. However, the execution of treatment ultimately lies at the discretion of the operator’s skill and experience with freehand dentistry. While tackling complex cases like access opening in a calcified root even the most experienced Endodontist are often posed by the questions: “How do I reach my target safely?”, “Where am I (anatomically)?”, or “Where and how shall I position my drill?”.

    Three-dimensional (3D) printed surgical guides i.e. “Static” navigation for implant placement have been around since the early 2000’s. However, its application in Endodontics has been crippled due to factors like extensive pre-planning protocols, inability to use it with a high-speed hand piece and limited inter-occlusal distance to accommodate the guides. On the other hand, computer assisted 3D “Dynamic” navigation may be able to overcome these limitations and enable clinicians to perform modern minimally procedures with less uncertainty and more consistency. With improved artificial intelligence technology and a trend towards bid data collection and advanced information processing, 3D dynamic navigation promises to unlock new synergies and can be an effective treatment tool providing Endodontist’s with the right information in real time.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    1. Discuss the evolution of Guided and Navigation technology in Endodontics
    2. Describe the current evidence for minimally invasive endodontics and benefits of dynamic navigation in locating calcified canal sand other complex clinical scenarios
    3. Critically evaluate the chair-side feasibility of all the navigation systems currently available for Endodontic purposes and the possibility of integrating this technology into their practices

    Anatomically Driven Endodontics


    The XP family of endodontic instruments has been modelled to achieve a fusion of technology and biology that integrates all variables essential for predictable endodontic success. The super elasticity and shape-memory of the alloy used in XP instruments facilitates expansion and adaptation into canal morphology where traditional in-the-round NiTi files are unable to reach with any margin of safety. This enables maximal debridement and disinfection without changes to the original canal shape and ensures minimal removal of intra-canal dentin. This ultra-conservative root treatment can then be filled using Bioceramic technologies that do not require excessive preparation in the coronal component of the root canal space to accommodate obturation procedures.

    Objectives

    1. Comprehend the scientifically based biologic requirements for endodontic success
    2. Understand the limitations of files that creates a round shape
    3. Understand the latest generation of technologies that allows us to clinically obtain the essential biologic goals for success

    Predictable Tactics For Simplifying Root Canal Complexities


    The aim of this scientific lecture is to explain how to manage complex root canal cases efficiently and easily which became the regular scenario in our daily practice. Last years, many different techniques have been proposed to manage the challenging root canal anatomies either for Primary or Retreatment Root Canal cases. Moreover, Morphological variations of root canal system became so popular specially the severely curved root canals or S-shaped Canals, where creating a predictable protocol for such cases became a must.

    This lecture covers sequential steps for managing of nearly all primary root canal cases; Both Simple and Complex Anatomies. It simplifies the procedural steps where all the iatrogenic errors can be avoided, depending on using a simplified, reproducible clinical approaches based on the Recent Minimally Invasive Endodontics (MIE) concept.

    Clinical Significance (Objectives) of the lecture is to make attendees able to shape all difficult root canal anatomies safely while reducing the risk of instruments separation, Learn How to Predict the Outcome of Primary Endodontic Treatment, Know the Clinical Guidelines that Should be applied in your daily Endodontic Practice, to know How MIE Changed Our Approach in all steps of RCT, Learn the Balance between Conservative Shaping & Proper Disinfection.

    How to disinfect root canals in an appropriate way using laser technology: fiction and facts


    A more intense clinical application of lasers in endodontics started in the late 90's. In that period, delivering the laser light up to the radicular apex, conventionally one millimetre from the anatomic apex, was performed by means of flexible fibres or tips with a thin (narrow) diameter (generally 200-300 microns). This approach required helical (circular or spiral) movement of the fibre, in order to increase the irradiation angle between laser fibre and dentin surface, trying to improve the angle (directionality) and energy diffusion. This technique is suitable for most wavelengths used in dentistry in the visible (532nm / KTP), in the near-infrared (from 810 to 1340 nm / Diodes - Nd: Nd: YAP), and medium-infrared (2780 nm / Er,Cr:YSGG and 2940 nm / Er:YAG) electromagnetic spectrum. This technique is what we call “conventional laser endodontics”: the spiral motion of a laser fibre in a dried canal.

    Almost ten years later the activation of irrigation solutions with Erbium lasers was introduced. This was the beginning of the era of “laser activated irrigation” (LAI), with a fibre in the irrigation solution and inducing fluid streaming based on the creation of cavitation bubbles. Also, here, there was a rapid evolution.

    At present two approaches are possible i.e.

    1. Conventional LAI (with the fibre still in the root canal lumen) and
    2. The PIPS (single pulse) or SWEEPS (dual pulse) approach with the fibre in the pulp chamber activating the irrigation solution in the root canal

    The aim of this presentation is

    1. To clarify the difference in laser-target interaction of these techniques
    2. To evaluate the value-added cleaning and disinfection of the 3 different approaches
    3. To highlight how laser use, though depending on the wavelength, can make the difference with the current non-laser based cleaning and disinfection protocols and finally
    4. May satisfy the needs of modern endodontics

    How to manage complicated root canal with new generation NiTi file


    The best possible chemomechanical debridement of root canal systems are a prerequisite for endodontic success. In complicated root canals this task can be quite difficult for every dentist since the management of very narrow root canals, canals with sharp curvatures, obliterated root canals or very oval root canals is very challenging.

    The risk of instrument fractures, perforations or ledges is a major concern in treating those canal systems. Besides the right strategy, a newly developed NiTi File system can play a pivotal role in overcoming these challenges. Due to a novel heat treatment and a unique design featuring radial lands and sharp cutting edges these files exhibit a very high flexibility and safety in every situation even in bigger file sizes.

    In this lecture this newly developed file system, which can be adapted to various anatomical requirements, shall be introduced and the unique features which make it possible to use it in nearly every anatomical situation explained.

    How to manage broken instruments?


    NiTi instruments fracture, more than 90 % of them fracture in the apical third of the canal, which makes it very frustrating and challenging for a clinician to retrieve them. Above all, instrument fracture immediately hinders the clinician from performing further treatment, and thus the outcome of the treatment will be compromised.

    The majority of clinicians would not want to make an attempt to retrieve the broken file in consideration of possibilities of having procedural accidents during the retrieval attempts mainly because instrument retrieval may not be predictable. In addition, the disadvantages of traditional instrument removal techniques are excessive removal of dentin during trephine, which may result in perforation or predispose the tooth to vertical root fracture.

    However, the literature shows that the success rates of instrument retrieval with ultrasonics are relatively higher in the range of 80 to 90 %. If the whole procedure for instrument retrieval can be standardized and simply predictable, it will be no longer frustrating and challenging for every clinician. Therefore in my IFEA webinar, I would like to show everyone how to make it predictable to remove broken file so that everyone can stay happy and even enjoy removing the broken file.

    How to interpret preoperative endodontic anatomy in clinical practice


    Diagnostic imaging is an essential component of the preoperative diagnosis which the operator must devote the utmost attention: if the diagnosis is wrong the outcome will be negative even if the endodontic therapy is technically performed excellently.

    A complete understanding of endodontic anatomy before starting treatment is very useful to get a positive outcome of the therapy. The cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is the most important innovation in diagnostic imagining in endodontics; CBCT offers great advantages compared to the traditional two-dimensional examination thanks to the three-dimensional visualization of the periradicular and endodontic space, allowing the clinician to identify a possible periapical pathology and the perfect visualization of the real anatomy endodontic thus providing the necessary information for the correct endodontic approach.

    How many colleagues have a CBCT in their practices? If it is true that CBCT should be the “standard of care” for the endodontic anatomy preoperative investigation, it is equally true that a few percentage of dentists have a CBCT in the office, and sometimes it is difficult to refer a patient for CBCT when there is no doubt for the diagnosis but just to understand the endodontic anatomy.

    In most cases, the operator must interpret the endodontic anatomy with a correct reading of the traditional 2D radiograph thanks to the knowledge of the anatomy of the root canal system; in the absence of diagnostic doubt the use of the CBCT solely for the anatomy endodontic visualization is a biological high cost for the patient in terms of radiation exposure and even an additional therapy cost. The aim of this lecture is to highlight how in most cases a correct understanding of the endodontic anatomy is possible thanks to a correct reading of the traditional 2D radiograph and how the operator can make a rational and synergistic use of 2D and 3D imaging in order to provide the best service to the patient with the least possible biological cost.

    Apical periodontitis is known as the periapical host-immune response to the existence of opportunistic microbes as biofilm within the root canal system. The response of host-immune system to microbial biofilm is distinctly different to their planktonic counterpart. Different clinical presentations are also possible when they are associated with a chronic disease. This lecture will cover the evolving perspectives of root canal biofilm in disease and post treatment healing.

    Management of challenging clinical scenarios with calcium silicate-based materials


    As endodontists, our labor goes beyond the limits of the root canal system, each one of our treatments is intended to restore, or to maintain patients’ oral health. From an optimistic point of view, endodontist´s advisable goal should be a first step intervention focused in a conservative treatment of pulp disease. Nevertheless, when it is not possible to maintain the pulpo-dentinal complex alive, to perform root canal treatments without compromising the biological balance becomes a key challenge to overcome. The main goal of the lecture is to present scientifically based clinical techniques, applied with the new generation of biomaterials with the objective of restoring or maintaining the harmony in patients` oral environment.

    How to manage the anatomical complexities of the root canal system


    Every root canal system presents challenges to the full range of ideal treatment. Two of the most common challenges revolve around the elusive “mid-mesial canal” found in both the mesial-buccal root of the maxillary molars and the mesial roots of mandibular molars. Not to be outdone, however, is the apical 3-5 mm of each root in its display of accessory communications, and the inherent challenges of cleaning and disinfection primarily in roots of teeth with necrotic pulps and periapical lesions. This presentation will highlight the challenges in management presented in both anatomical scenarios.

    Upon completion of the lecture, the participant should be able to:

    1. Identify the true nature of the challenges encountered in both anatomical scenarios
    2. Detail and discuss clinical techniques advocated to manage these challenges

He joined the University of Toronto, Canada in 1999 for a full-time position as the Director of the Endodontic Undergraduate Programme. He was granted tenure in 2004.

    He has been elected for 4 consecutive years as the "Best Teacher of the Year", and has received the "Master Bruce Howard Award for Excellence in Teaching" the highest teaching award at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto.

    He is the inventor of the single file endodontics and asymmetrical mechanical reciprocation, the basis of modern reciprocation. His research is currently focussed on root canal disinfection. He has just introduced a new concept for the management of root canals with a non instrumentation technique. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed international endodontic journals and has given numerous lectures and continuous education courses worldwide.

    How to handle acute canal curvatures


    The preparation of severely curved canals involves 3 steps: Initial canal negotiation with small hand files, creation of a glide path and canal shaping. The last step, canal shaping, becomes easy once a glide path has been established. Once a glide path is created, it is likely that all modern endodontic files used in continuous rotation or reciprocation will be equally effective for canal shaping.

    However, the first 2 steps, especially the initial canal negotiation can be very challenging. Small hand files used for the initial canal negotiation are associated with a higher incidence of procedural errors. In addition, glide path instruments have a relatively high fracture rate. A procedure that depends less on these 2 steps for the canal preparation will be easier and safer.

    All of the systems present on the market for canal preparation, except for Reciproc and Reciproc blue (Reciproc®), involve the challenging steps of initial canal negotiation and glide path preparation in every canal. With Reciproc® , the majority of the canals, including narrow and curved canals, can be managed with only one reciprocating instrument without any prior instrumentation: without initial canal negotiation and glide path preparation. This presentation will discuss the scientific evidence supporting the efficiency and safety of the Reciproc®.Techniques for the management of severely curved canals will be described in detail taking into consideration different clinical scenarios.

    The attendees will understand:

    1. The challenges and risks associated with the different steps of the preparation of severely curved canals, mainly the initial canal negotiation and glide path preparation
    2. The causes of fracture of hand files and mechanical NiTi instruments
    3. The similarities and differences between conventional systems, requiring initial canal negotiation and glidepath, and Reciproc®, and why it is possible to use Reciproc® without any prior instrumentation for the preparation of severely curved canals

    5. The indications and how to create a glide path before Reciproc® in specific cases
    6. The indications and how to use small hand files for the initial canal negotiation
    7. The rational of the referral to an endodontist, when required
    8. The strong scientific evidence supporting the safety and efficiency of Reciproc
    9. The importance of cleaning and disinfection, and future directions

    Evolution of Root Canal Treatment: TruNatomy. A Restoratively Driven Path to Endodontic Excellence


    In addition to the conventional understanding of endodontic success determined by apical health, it has become evident that long-term retention is an important measure for the effectiveness of root canal treatments.

    Underpinning this strategy, TruNatomy is an innovative root canal treatment system built on the understanding that endodontic excellence will follow a restoratively driven path. TruNatomy allows a comprehensive and flexible treatment solution that preserves the structural integrity of the tooth and adapts to all your clinical situations.

    The system includes five innovative rotary instruments with a distinctive offset cross section and new advanced heat treatment, which provides excellent canal tracking and durability. TruNatomy provides a reproducible cantered glide path while the unique sizing promotes desired apical sizes without unnecessary coronal enlargement with just two or three instruments. The TruNatomy system offers a new flexible irrigation cannula, fitted gutta percha, electric heat plugger tip and paper points.

    This presentation is designed to introduce, in details, the new system by Dentsply Sirona and describe its features and use, combining excellent canal debridement with a smooth effortless feeling while shaping canals of all types of anatomy.

    Evidence-based tips for improving root canal treatment outcomes PART I


    A revolution in the tools available for delivering root canal treatment over the last 2-3 decades has enabled dentists to produce technically excellent results. A further revolution in the debridement options over the last 1-2 decades should have enabled enhanced global treatment outcomes. However, the list of general dental practitioners’ problems in root canal treatment has remained unaltered, together with the success rates, for over a century! True to the history of root canal treatment, the biological considerations have lagged behind in the practitioner’s consciousness, as stated almost a 100 years ago:

    “We are not trained to think in terms of biological concepts but we are to act in mechanical procedures” (Noyes 1922).

    Practical tips (delivered in the right frame of reference) might ease the technique but only cognitive insight can enhance intra-operative decision-making to facilitate predictable treatment, delivered with confidence.

    The dentist must understand the problem, know how to solve it and be able to skillfully execute treatment; these triumvirate requisites must be practically-embedded and cognitively-integrated to achieve success.

    This presentation distils multiple strands of evidence (biological, clinical, technical, mechanical, chemical) to describe a coherent picture of the sequence of events during root canal treatment, from the disease entity to its prevention or cure, and predictable long-term tooth survival.

    It will address the biological rationale, implications of biofilms, nature of antimicrobial interaction leading to bacterial killing or survival, the problem of fluid dynamics and apical anatomy, why periapical lesions take so long to heal, and why others take even longer, whilst some fail to heal. It will also highlight why patients sometimes complain, despite technically adequate treatment that the tooth does not “feel right” or continues to exhibit discomfort.

    The lecture should establish a clear biological perspective to the technical aspects of the root canal treatment procedure, leading to a rationale for it how it works and why certain practical steps are key and cannot be overlooked. Ultimately, periapical healing is not enough, the tooth must last and maintain periapical health. This requires insight about tooth properties, restoration design, occlusal forces and technical skills in manipulating restorative materials. Root canal treatment may weaken teeth but such effects may be mitigated.

    Succinct overall aims and learning objectives
    Aim
    The lecture will synthesize biological, clinical and technical evidence on the nature and problems of apical periodontitis and its prevention or cure, root canal treatment.

    Learning outcomes
    Participants should gain a familiarity, if not an understanding, of the nature of periapical disease and how root canal treatment works. They should understand the context of the practical steps and their importance in enhancing periapical disease prevention or healing. The management of restorative status and patient expectations are key for ultimate patient satisfaction.

    Practical tips (delivered in the right frame of reference) might ease the technique but only cognitive insight can enhance intra-operative decision-making to facilitate predictable treatment, delivered with confidence.

    The dentist must understand the problem, know how to solve it and be able to skillfully execute treatment; these triumvirate requisites must be practically-embedded and cognitively-integrated to achieve success.

    This presentation distils multiple strands of evidence (biological, clinical, technical, mechanical, chemical) to describe a coherent picture of the sequence of events during root canal treatment, from the disease entity to its prevention or cure, and predictable long-term tooth survival.

    It will address the biological rationale, implications of biofilms, nature of antimicrobial interaction leading to bacterial killing or survival, the problem of fluid dynamics and apical anatomy, why periapical lesions take so long to heal, and why others take even longer, whilst some fail to heal. It will also highlight why patients sometimes complain, despite technically adequate treatment that the tooth does not “feel right” or continues to exhibit discomfort.

    Succinct overall aims and learning objectives
    Aim
    The lecture will synthesize biological, clinical and technical evidence on the nature and problems of apical periodontitis and its prevention or cure, root canal treatment.

    Learning outcomes
    Participants should gain a familiarity, if not an understanding, of the nature of periapical disease and how root canal treatment works. They should understand the context of the practical steps and their importance in enhancing periapical disease prevention or healing. The management of restorative status and patient expectations are key for ultimate patient satisfaction.

    Dental Traumatic Injuries – Revised Guidelines for Management


    The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) first published Guidelines for the management of traumatic dental injuries in 2001. They were then revised and published in 2007 and again in 2012. Now the IADT’s Expert Committees have once again revised the Guidelines and they will be published in Dental Traumatology in August 2020.

    The latest Guidelines consist of four articles. The first article presents general information relevant to all traumatic dental injuries. The second article covers the management of avulsed teeth and the third covers the management of fractures and luxation injuries of permanent teeth. The final article covers injuries to the primary teeth. The Guidelines have been based on the best available evidence following extensive reviews of the literature, along with the expert opinions of the committee members who come from a wide variety of speciality backgrounds.

    The main aim of the Guidelines is to provide readers with easy to access information that can be consulted when faced with a traumatic dental injury. In particular, they outline the emergency management of the various injuries and they have some general information for follow-up management and the possible outcomes. This lecture will summarise the Guidelines to provide practitioners with an update on the management of traumatic dental injuries.

    How to clean the pulp space predictably


    This lecture will focus on how to render chemical root canal debridement simple and effective. At the core of cleaning, there is mechanical instrumentation to the proper length that is dictated by the progress of infection. Apart from that, the potentially infected pulp/dentin wound needs to be cleaned chemically. It has become clear over the years that NaOCl is the core chemical to be used for that purpose.

    Recent data show that NaOCl is highly effective in the lavage of exposed pulps in teeth with deep caries. Moreover, delivered in an endodontic irrigant, NaOCl uniquely dissolves biofilm and necrotic soft tissue remnants. Furthermore, it can bleach blood-derived stains in dentin. What NaOCl does not do, however, is to prevent “dentin mud” or, more precisely, inorganic debris and smear layer from accumulating during mechanical root canal preparation.

    NaOCl does not condition the root canal wall for optimal sealer adhesion either. To this end, decalcifying agents are necessary. Traditionally, EDTA or citric acid solutions were used to dissolve smear layer and accumulated hard tissue debris. In this lecture, it will be discussed why a molecule used in the cosmetics and dishwashing industry, namely 1-hydroxyethane 1,1-diphosphonic acid (HEDP), could be advantageous also in endodontics.

    How to locate calcified canals predictably using 3D Dynamic Navigation


    Endodontist’s quest for safer, less invasive, and more cost-efficient procedures has come a long way and continues to move forward at an unprecedented pace. The increased diagnostic information provided with the advent of Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has been proven to provide more accurate diagnosis and improved decision making for the management of complex endodontic problems. However, the execution of treatment ultimately lies at the discretion of the operator’s skill and experience with freehand dentistry. While tackling complex cases like access opening in a calcified root even the most experienced Endodontist are often posed by the questions: “How do I reach my target safely?”, “Where am I (anatomically)?”, or “Where and how shall I position my drill?”.

    Three-dimensional (3D) printed surgical guides i.e. “Static” navigation for implant placement have been around since the early 2000’s. However, its application in Endodontics has been crippled due to factors like extensive pre-planning protocols, inability to use it with a high-speed hand piece and limited inter-occlusal distance to accommodate the guides. On the other hand, computer assisted 3D “Dynamic” navigation may be able to overcome these limitations and enable clinicians to perform modern minimally procedures with less uncertainty and more consistency. With improved artificial intelligence technology and a trend towards bid data collection and advanced information processing, 3D dynamic navigation promises to unlock new synergies and can be an effective treatment tool providing Endodontist’s with the right information in real time.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    1. Discuss the evolution of Guided and Navigation technology in Endodontics
    2. Describe the current evidence for minimally invasive endodontics and benefits of dynamic navigation in locating calcified canal sand other complex clinical scenarios
    3. Critically evaluate the chair-side feasibility of all the navigation systems currently available for Endodontic purposes and the possibility of integrating this technology into their practices

    Anatomically Driven Endodontics


    The XP family of endodontic instruments has been modelled to achieve a fusion of technology and biology that integrates all variables essential for predictable endodontic success. The super elasticity and shape-memory of the alloy used in XP instruments facilitates expansion and adaptation into canal morphology where traditional in-the-round NiTi files are unable to reach with any margin of safety. This enables maximal debridement and disinfection without changes to the original canal shape and ensures minimal removal of intra-canal dentin. This ultra-conservative root treatment can then be filled using Bioceramic technologies that do not require excessive preparation in the coronal component of the root canal space to accommodate obturation procedures.

    Objectives

    1. Comprehend the scientifically based biologic requirements for endodontic success
    2. Understand the limitations of files that creates a round shape
    3. Understand the latest generation of technologies that allows us to clinically obtain the essential biologic goals for success

    Predictable Tactics For Simplifying Root Canal Complexities


    The aim of this scientific lecture is to explain how to manage complex root canal cases efficiently and easily which became the regular scenario in our daily practice. Last years, many different techniques have been proposed to manage the challenging root canal anatomies either for Primary or Retreatment Root Canal cases. Moreover, Morphological variations of root canal system became so popular specially the severely curved root canals or S-shaped Canals, where creating a predictable protocol for such cases became a must.

    This lecture covers sequential steps for managing of nearly all primary root canal cases; Both Simple and Complex Anatomies. It simplifies the procedural steps where all the iatrogenic errors can be avoided, depending on using a simplified, reproducible clinical approaches based on the Recent Minimally Invasive Endodontics (MIE) concept.

    Clinical Significance (Objectives) of the lecture is to make attendees able to shape all difficult root canal anatomies safely while reducing the risk of instruments separation, Learn How to Predict the Outcome of Primary Endodontic Treatment, Know the Clinical Guidelines that Should be applied in your daily Endodontic Practice, to know How MIE Changed Our Approach in all steps of RCT, Learn the Balance between Conservative Shaping & Proper Disinfection.

    How to disinfect root canals in an appropriate way using laser technology: fiction and facts


    A more intense clinical application of lasers in endodontics started in the late 90's. In that period, delivering the laser light up to the radicular apex, conventionally one millimetre from the anatomic apex, was performed by means of flexible fibres or tips with a thin (narrow) diameter (generally 200-300 microns). This approach required helical (circular or spiral) movement of the fibre, in order to increase the irradiation angle between laser fibre and dentin surface, trying to improve the angle (directionality) and energy diffusion. This technique is suitable for most wavelengths used in dentistry in the visible (532nm / KTP), in the near-infrared (from 810 to 1340 nm / Diodes - Nd: Nd: YAP), and medium-infrared (2780 nm / Er,Cr:YSGG and 2940 nm / Er:YAG) electromagnetic spectrum. This technique is what we call “conventional laser endodontics”: the spiral motion of a laser fibre in a dried canal.

    Almost ten years later the activation of irrigation solutions with Erbium lasers was introduced. This was the beginning of the era of “laser activated irrigation” (LAI), with a fibre in the irrigation solution and inducing fluid streaming based on the creation of cavitation bubbles. Also, here, there was a rapid evolution.

    At present two approaches are possible i.e.

    1. Conventional LAI (with the fibre still in the root canal lumen) and
    2. The PIPS (single pulse) or SWEEPS (dual pulse) approach with the fibre in the pulp chamber activating the irrigation solution in the root canal

    The aim of this presentation is

    1. To clarify the difference in laser-target interaction of these techniques
    2. To evaluate the value-added cleaning and disinfection of the 3 different approaches
    3. To highlight how laser use, though depending on the wavelength, can make the difference with the current non-laser based cleaning and disinfection protocols and finally
    4. May satisfy the needs of modern endodontics

    How to manage complicated root canal with new generation NiTi file


    The best possible chemomechanical debridement of root canal systems are a prerequisite for endodontic success. In complicated root canals this task can be quite difficult for every dentist since the management of very narrow root canals, canals with sharp curvatures, obliterated root canals or very oval root canals is very challenging.

    The risk of instrument fractures, perforations or ledges is a major concern in treating those canal systems. Besides the right strategy, a newly developed NiTi File system can play a pivotal role in overcoming these challenges. Due to a novel heat treatment and a unique design featuring radial lands and sharp cutting edges these files exhibit a very high flexibility and safety in every situation even in bigger file sizes.

    In this lecture this newly developed file system, which can be adapted to various anatomical requirements, shall be introduced and the unique features which make it possible to use it in nearly every anatomical situation explained.
