A new category of expanding endodontic instruments has been modeled to achieve a fusion of technology and biology that integrates all variables essential for predictable endodontic success.
The superelasticity and shape-memory of the alloy used in this latest generation of expanding 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.
Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will • Comprehend the scientifically based biologic requirements for endodontic success • Understand the limitations of files that creates a round shape • Understand the latest generation of technologies that allows us to clinically obtain the essential biologic goals for success
