Introduction to contemporary Endodontics - module 1

An online course

Endo online

About this course

On this online course on primary endodontic treatment, you will be updated on the latest biological and technical concepts and procedures for predictable outcomes. We will start discussing the etiological factors involving in endodontic disease and the biological involvement on the pulp and periapical tissues. It will also be addressed the internal root canal anatomy and the challenges we encounter daily to clean out the pulp tissue and the biofilms from these complex areas.

Bridging the biological and clinical part, we will present a predictable endodontic diagnostic system and treatment plan. In the clinical aspect, we will be demonstrating and discussing the importance of using high magnification such as loupes and microscopes during endodontic therapy. This will follow by several clinical tips for access cavity, scouting the root canals, and create a glide path to the apical foramen.

It will be presented a new and predictable way to instrument the root canal by using a heat-treated NiTi instrument to reach all irregularities of the complex internal root canal anatomy. These are the newest 3D heat-treated NiTi files. During the instrumentation of the complex root canal system, the proper irrigation solutions must be used in a systematic sequence. This is to reach areas where the mechanical instrumentation is not able to do so.

An evidence-based irrigation protocol will, therefore, be presented. On the obturation part, the newest pre-mixed bioceramic material will be discussed focusing on its biological advantages and the clinical protocols to use them during the final steps of endodontic therapy. 

This course will be a combination of theoretical lectures and live demonstrations through different cameras and broadcasted directly from the Colosseum Academy in Oslo.

Curriculum Vitae - Dr Gilberto Debelian

Dr Gilberto Debelian has received his DMD degree from the University of Sao Paulo, Brasil in 1987. He has completed his specialization in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, USA in 1991 and received the Louis I. Grossman Postdoctoral Student Award in Endodontics. He has taught as a clinical instructor and associate professor at the post-doctoral endodontic program at the Department of Endodontics, University of Oslo, Norway from 1991 to 2001, and from 2006 to 2010. He has concluded his PhD studies at the University of Oslo, Norway in 1997 on endodontic microbiology, which gave him two scientific awards from the Europen Society of Endodontology (ESE) and from the Norwegian Dental Association both in 1997.  He is an adjunct visiting professor at the post-graduate program in endodontics, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA. Dr Debelian maintains a private practice limited to Endodontics and is responsible for the endodontic microscopy centre – EndoInn.

Dr Debelian has authored 5 chapter books in Endodontics, one book in Endodontics and has written more than 60 scientific and clinical papers. He is currently a member of the scientific advisory panel for the Journal of Endodontics, International Endodontic Journal and director of the Oslo Endodontic Study Club as well as the past vice-president of the Norwegian Endodontic Society. Dr Debelian lectures nationally and internationally on different biological and clinical topics in endodontics. Dr Debelian is also involved in hands-on courses on different topics including NiTi instrument technologies and operative dental microscopy both on conventional, retreatment and surgical endodontics.


”I really enjoyed this course and found it most useful. As an endo specialist, I always keep my professional knowledge up-to-date and have attended many courses during my career. The endodontics course by Dr Gilberto Debelian offered a thorough insight into contemporary endodontics and the biological principles related to endodontic treatment. I found it among the best-structured courses I have ever attended. I can warmly recommend this course to every dentist practising endodontics, including endodontic specialists.”

"The Colosseum Academy Endodontics webinar course was a real success, I took so much on board from Dr Gilberto Debelian, a real professionist specialist in Endo. The teaching and learning experience were very enjoyable and I will for sure participate to the hands-on course in Oslo. The pre course videos and hands out were very well done and constituted a very good base to grasp. Many thanks for this course online!"
