Available Sessions

  • The Rapid-Flow Technique of Filling Canals With Plasticized Gutta-Percha
    Topic: Preparing Canals
    Learning Objectives:

    At the conclusion of the presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Enhance armamentarium with a technique which allows preparing and filling canals in which cones cannot be fit.
    • Describe how to control heat plasticized gutta-percha and accomplish 3-D fills more rapidly than fitting a cone.

    This course consists of preparing the root canal system to allow total 3-D filling of the canal system with plasticized gutta-percha without cones. Proper canal instrumentation is emphasized to control condensation of the plasticized filling material and allow for canal system irregularities such as accessory canals, fins and inter-canal communications.
