Perhaps the greatest international attention in recent years has focused on methods to improve endodontic disinfection in the root canal system. The desired attributes of a root canal irrigant include the ability to dissolve necrotic and pulpal tissue, bacterial decontamination with a broad antimicrobial spectrum, the ability to enter deep into the dentinal tubules, biocompatibility and lack of toxicity, the ability to dissolve inorganic material and remove the smear layer, biofilm, ease of use, and moderate cost.
This CE webinar will focus on evidence based research with respect to the latest most suitable and safe irrigant and irrigant delivery systems that are essential for efficient irrigation and the success of endodontic treatment. Focus will be on the EndoVac, a unique and innovative irrigant delivery system that uses apical negative pressure.
Upon completion of this CE activity, the student will be able to: 1) Understand the objectives of endodontic irrigation 2) Become familiar with current irrigant and irrigant delivery systems 3) Become familiar with apical negative pressure 4) Implement apical negative pressure irrigant delivery with safety and ease
