Have you ever had trouble “finding” all canals? Ever had trouble “following” canals to length or mysteriously losing length? Even with the latest technologies that are supposed to make endodontics easier, many dentists and patients still have a disappointing endodontic experience. Why? The main reason is that your patients are aging and their root canal systems are shrinking, even calcifying, and therefore becoming tortuous. In this lecture, endodontist Dr. John West will teach you the secrets of “finding” all canals, “following” all canals (including calcified ones), Glidepath preparation for safe mechanical shaping, and conefits for easy and predictable 3D obturation. John’s promise: “Give me three hours and I will teach you a lifetime of successful endodontic mechanics.”

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss how to master the endodontic Glidepath.
  • Rotary vs. Reciprocation: “How do I choose?”
  • Discuss how to make a Conefit for easy 3D obturation.

Subject: ​Endodontics
