2- days hands-on course on retreatment

About this course

*Participation in the digital Module 2 course is needed before enrolment in on-site courses. 

On this 2-days non-surgical endodontic retreatment course you will be updated on biological concepts and technical procedures on post-treatment endodontic diseases. Clinical decision-making strategies will be discussed when a retreatment x surgical approaches should be applied for optimal outcomes. All participants will be trained under an individual microscope on simulating 3D teeth, extracted teeth as well as on phantom head models. Both 2D x-rays and CBCT will be used to access all information before and after the treatment is completed. Dr. Debelian will demonstrate all procedures through an operative microscope as well as through a new 3D camera transmitted to individual 2D and 3D monitors.


Access cavity: training on minimal invasive access cavity techniques and efficient technique to exposed obturated canals as well as throwing and chasing hidden and untreated root canals.

Retreatment procedures: 1 - demonstration and practice on different retreatment protocols by removing intra-canal obturation materials using dedicated round burs, ultrasonic inserts, and advanced adaptive NiTi rotary files. 2 - a demonstration on how to manage steps caused by previous endodontic treatment

Cleaning/irrigation: a comprehensive and evidence-based irrigation protocol will be discussed, demonstrated, and the participants will be used in all teeth treated during the course.

Managing Separated Endodontic Files: 1- Treatment planning using CBCT to remove separated instruments. 2- Predictable clinical protocol for dislodging and removing broken tools. 3- Use of ultrasonic tips, XPe files, IRS system, Terauchi`s, and EndoCowboy loops techniques.

Removal of post: clinical protocol on dislodging different types of post

Perforations: 1 - Treatment of coronal and apical perforations using a pre-mixed bioceramic material. 2 - Reparation of furcation and strip perforations.

Xrays and CBCT analyses: at the end of the course, all teeth treated by the participant will be individually analyzed by 2d x-ray technique. The teeth treated on the phantom head models will be separately examined by CBCT technology.
