This course is designed to present a predictable method of attaining a definitive endodontic diagnosis to assure that treatment is always initiated on the tooth that is the source of the patient's symptoms or disease.
This webinar presentation will concentrate on how to perform endodontics in a predictable, reproducible and data-driven manner to enhance endodontic and restorative success and the long-term prognosis of the restored tooth. After briefly reviewing critical concepts from the previous webinar, the focus will be on new access modalities that promote the conservation of dentin and help preserve the structural integrity of endodontically treated teeth.
To identify and assess anatomic danger zones and how anatomy affects rotary file design selection and technique. Dr. Balson will illustrate the subtle and not-so-subtle areas of tooth anatomy that can create problems for the clinician that provides endodontic treatment for his/her patients. He will outline the new rotary file design parameters that account for these areas, and discuss and demonstrate how new concepts in access design and rotary file technique assist the clinician in producing precise shaping results that significantly improve endodontic outcomes.
Treatment planning the restoration of the endodontically-treated tooth should begin with a complete and comprehensive full mouth evaluation, in tandem with the tooth in question. Important considerations include the periodontal support, quality of root canal treatment, occlusal scheme, para-functional habits, available vertical space, age and gender of patient, and the intended function of the tooth: single restoration or abutment for an overdenture, fixed or removable partial denture.
Esthetic restorative emergencies in the anterior esthetic zone can involve a fractured tooth, fracture of metal or ceramic material from fixed indirect restorations, or the avulsion or loss of a periodontally involved incisor. While these are not acute emergencies from the perspective of pain or discomfort, they are emergencies from the patient’s perspective due to the loss of esthetics. Triaging patients prior to their appointments is helpful in planning and optimizing treatment.
The ability to achieve profound local anesthesia for patients in general, and endodontic patients in particular, can be impacted by many factors. These include the inflammatory process, anatomical structures and neural variations. In order to efficiently and effectively manage endodontic emergencies in a relatively painless manner, the clinician must understand all of these considerations.

The objective of root canal therapy is the three-dimensional
cleansing, shaping, and obturation of the root canal system from
the canal orifice to the minor constriction of the apical foramen.
Endodontics should duplicate extraction. Extraction heals
because the entire diseased pulp is removed from the body. The
closer the clinician can duplicate extraction through endodontic
