One of the biggest challenges in ortho grade root treatment is locating and negotiating calcified canals. Even teeth with simple anatomy that suffer trauma often present with extreme calcification of the root canal. The MB2 of upper molar teeth is almost always calcified. Location and negotiation of these canals require both a unique skill set and an arsenal of equipment. In this hands on course participants will be able to bring in extracted teeth and practice access , location, as well as negotiation of calcified canals using a novel patency filing technique. Preparation of these canals will then be carried out using motor driven files.
