Nonsurgical endodontic retreatment

In this nonsurgical endodontic retreatment workshop, participants will be working on dental models bearing 3-D-printed maxillary molars with the help of operating microscopes. All models will be studied by CBCT before each exercise. Using specific burs, ultrasonic tips, NiTi files and bioceramic materials, we will demonstrate to the participants, followed by hands-on exercises, the following retreatment procedures:

  • Retreating the MB1 canal by first removing intracanal obturation materials with ultrasonication and dedicated 3-D NiTi retreatment files
  • Managing steps caused by previous treatment
  • Troughing around, dislodging and removing broken instruments with ultrasonic tips and IRS System
  • Removing posts
  • Repairing apical perforations with bioceramic material

The three days include the following:

  • Twenty-four hours of theoretical lectures and hands-on practice
  • A working station for each participant equipped with the necessary instruments and devices
  • One customized microscope for each participant (ZEISS or Global, with high-definition camera and an individual monitor)
  • All instruments and materials used during the course
  • Scrubs or working clothes for each day
  • 3-D transparent and opaque teeth (no need for extracted teeth)
  • Lunch and coffee/snacks

    What to see and do
    The ruins of the once-grand Heidelberg Castle rise up on a rocky hilltop over the city. The castle holds the largest wine barrel in the world, standing seven meters high and eight and a half meters wide, and holding 220,000 liters of wine. In the castle grounds is the Deutsches Apotheken-Museum, which recounts the history of Western pharmacology.

    Heidelberg Old Town is filled with architectural gems. Visit the town hall, the Old University and historic buildings like the 1592 Renaissance townhouse called “Knight St. George,” and enjoy the open-air cafes dotted along the market squares. The Old Town is also home to a third of all the shops in Heidelberg.

    Untere Straße, a narrow cobblestone street that runs parallel to the river and the main pedestrian street in the Old Town, is filled with great bars, coffee shops and inexpensive eateries.

    The Gothic Heiliggeistkirche, Heidelberg’s famous church, was at one time used by both Catholics and Protestants. The top of its spire offers a bird’s-eye view of the town. According to tradition, Heidelberg’s philosophers and university professors
    would walk and talk along the Philosophers’Way, which runs along the side of the Heiligenberg. It passes through the forest and commands panoramic views of the castle. The university library, built in Wilhelmian style, holds superb collections, including rare books and prints in its exhibition room.

    Learning objectives:

    • To describe the decision-making process related to surgical vs. nonsurgical endodontic retreatment
    • To apply clinical strategies when performing surgical and nonsurgical endodontic retreatment
    • To use new instruments for orthograde retreatment and microsurgery
    • To assess the outcome of endodontic retreatment in individual cases.

    The course is designed for practitioners who would like to incorporate the operating microscope in endodontic retreatment and microsurgery and for those who are already performing endodontic retreatment and microsurgery under the operating microscope, but would like to would like to became more proficient, to maximize ergonomics and efficiency, and learn new techniques.
    The course will cover a wide range of clinical scenarios in which endodontic retreatment and surgery are indicated and performed using specific techniques and the proper armamentarium.
    Instructor demonstration and practical hands-on training will include removal of previous filling materials, identification of missed canals, removal of metal and fiber posts, removal of separated instruments, repair of perforations and reshaping of ledged canals.
    The microsurgical approach will emphasize the management of the soft tissue, conservative amputation of the root apices, proper retrograde apical preparation and retrograde filling, augmentation materials and suturing.
    Participants will perform the hands-on procedures on extracted teeth mounted on models under dental operating microscopes using dedicated instruments.
