Three-dimensional instrumentation, disinfection and obturation of a canal system are essential for the success of a root canal treatment. Recently, new file systems called XP Shaper and Finisher (FKG, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland) have been introduced featuring the MaxWire® Technology allowing files to expend and adapt the three dimensional structure of root canal. This technique creates conservative canal preparation preserving more dentin tooth structure but, also, provides more efficient anatomical treatment of dentin surfaces.
In the last decade, Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) has been used successfully with a range of treatments such as
endodontic microsurgery, perforation repair, pulp capping or revascularization. MTA became the material of choice
based on biological principals however, its handling properties remain a practical obstacle to its application in root canal obturation. Recently, other calcium silicate based bioactive cements and sealers have been introduced
changing the rational and methods of accepted endodontic techniques in root canal obturation, perforation repair
or Endodontic microsurgery.
This presentation will explore the clinical applications, outcomes of XP file systems and bioceramic sealer obturation technique in endodontic practice. The hands-on course will allow participants to practice XP canal instrumentation and Bioceramic sealer obturation technique, and implement the knowledge learned during the seminar.
