How to manage calcified canals.
In daily endodontic practice we can find many difficulties: ledges, blockages, abrupt curvatures, pulp stones, calcified canals. Those things are a challenge for the operator and, in the “technological age of endo”, the line between GP and the Endodontists.
Calcified canals are frequent in our adult patients and calcifications could have different colours and stuctures.
Where and how to find the canal orifices and how to scout them appropriately will be described with a microscopic approach, and different microscopic operative procedures to solve the problems will be given and explained.
The focus will be on the use of the proper light, the right instruments and a wetting technique, teaching the participants the tools for a correct problem-solving approach.
