11-7-14_courseNew Dimensions in Endodontics • 5 CEU, core

This endo presentation is highly practical and will describe, in detail, numerous facets of clinical endodontics, utilizing a “Case Based Learning Approach.” A premolar and molar clinical case each will be discussed in detail that will demonstrate both the Basic EndoSequence Technique, as well some technique variations to handle more challenging cases. The principal scientific concepts for successful endodontics will be presented, with an emphasis on new technologies and techniques. Additionally, a new instrumentation and obturation technique (ESX® NiTi rotary instrumentation and Synchronized Hydraulic Condensation) will be introduced. All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session. Real World Endo remains dedicated to the preservation of the natural dentition though smarter endodontics. This presentation is a must see for those practitioners committed to clinical efficiency without sacrificing quality care for their patients.

Course Objectives:

• Comprehend some of the underlying scientific concepts for success by taking a few simple steps during clinical care

• Recognize the importance of proper straight-line access and how to achieve it

• Realize the many applications of fibre-optic ultrasonics in endodontics

• Learn how to properly use the ESX® NiTi rotary file and instrumentation system

• Know the correct way to use an ultrasonic, in the pursuit of hidden canals

• Understand the term, “Hydraulic Condensation” and its application during obturation

• Gain insight into the use of the new bioceramic materials in both surgical and nonsurgical endodontic care

• Become familiar with a novel and very efficient post preparation technique

• Understand that endodontics and restorative dentistry are not separate entities. Rather they are part of an
Endo-Restorative Continuum

Presented by Alex Fleury, DDS, MS

Dr. Alex Fleury received his M.S. in Oral Biology and Certificate in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He received his DDS in 1984 from the University of São Paulo. Dr. Fleury served as Director of Predoctoral Endodontics for six years at both Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in Florida and Baylor College of Dentistry. He currently serves as Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Dentistry, working with endodontic residents.

Of particular pride is being named the recipient of the Edward E. Osetek Award for best new Endodontic Educator of the year by the American Association of Endodontists.
