Endodontists have frequently boasted they can do much of their work blindfolded simply because there is "nothing to see." The truth of the matter is that there is a great deal to see if only we had the right tools In the last fifteen years for both non-surgical and surgical endodontics, there has been an explosion of new technologies, new instruments and new materials. The most important revolution has been the introduction and then the widespread adoption of the ultrasonics, microsurgical instruments and operating microscope. These developments have improved the precision with which endodontics can be performed. These advances have enabled clinicians to complete procedures which were once considered impossible or which could be performed only by extremely talented or lucky clinicians.
Since the late 1950s, the use of ultrasonic technology has become a staple in endodontic practices around the world for hygiene and periodontal procedures. More recently, endodontists have introduced us to the clinical advantages of their use in root canal therapy, and are just beginning to see their effectiveness for endo-restorative and micro-restorative work. The purpose of this poster is to review the consortium between ultrasonic and magnification.


Third Eye of an Endodontist

Diagnostic procedures play an indispensable role in delivering efficient and quality treatment to the patient. Successful management of endodontic problems is reliant on diagnostic techniques to provide critical information about teeth under investigation and their surrounding anatomy. Various imaging techniques overcome the limitations of radiographs that are 2D representation of 3D structures, so as to accurately reflect the anatomy and morphology of the teeth. The introduction of various imaging modalities like CBCT, MRI, Swift MRI and advances in the imaging equipment heralds a true paradigm shift from 2D to 3D approach to data acquisition and imaging reconstruction. Recent advances in these imaging modalities have created a revolution in maxillofacial imaging expanding its role from diagnosis to image guidance of operative and surgical process. With the aim of making The Invisible – Visible, we are bringing to you the recent advances in the Imaging world revolutionizing dentistry.


Shaping of root canals with one instrument …?

The endodontist is in dilemma today because of single-file systems. Use of only one instrument to shape and clean root canals is very useful and easy knowledge regarding the properties and working of these single-file systems are few. Two different concepts of these single-file systems are in endodontics, one instruments which are used in a reciprocal motion and are made of a special nickel-titanium alloy called alpha M-wire and instruments made of conventional NiTi alloy used in a full clockwise rotation. The poster aims to compare their shaping ability, safety, and cleaning effectiveness.


Glide Path in Endodontics

What is a glide path? Does it help in root canal procedure? Glide-path is a smooth radicular tunnel from canal orifice to physiologic terminus (foraminal constriction). Its minimal size should be a “super loose No. 10” endodontic file. The Glidepath must be discovered if already present in the endodontic anatomy or prepared if it is not present. Glide path creation is essential for prevention of rotary file separation and most effective rotary use. Creating an.02 tapered glide path is critical for the safe and effective use of nickel-titanium rotary shaping instruments. Glidepath can be further described as a manual glide path created with handfiles, or a mechanical glide path created with rotary files. Routine glide path establishment and enlargement with glide path files can increase the lifespan of rotary instruments with a reduced risk of instrument fracture. Aim is to provide information about glide path with which we can maintain the original canal anatomy with less modification of canal curvature and fewer canal aberrations.


Case Reports on Treatment of Root Resorption Evaluating Using CBCT

One of the most challenging pulpo pathological condition is resorption. Internal and External resorption signifies a complex pathological intraction of cells of pulp periradicular and periodontal tissues. Three case reports describing management of internal and external resorption with two year follow up using CBCT. CBCT is contemporary radiological imaging system in which there is enhance appreciation of the anatomy being assessed hence there is improved detection of the endodontic disease resulting in more effective treatment planning..
