Current concepts and strategies in nickel-titanium (NiTi) root canal instrumentation and filling

Rotary NiTi endodontic instrumentation is an established contemporary technique for the effective chemo-mechanical instrumentation of root canals. In recent times, newer heat-treated NiTi alloys have become available offering additional benefits to supplement the traditional super-elastic alloy.

This program, including morning lectures followed by an afternoon of hands-on practice, will review the current understanding of the basis for the newer alloys and enable participants to trial the VDW instrumentation and root filling options and protocols. At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to describe and apply:

  • the role of small hand instruments in contemporary endodontic instrumentation
  • biological principles of endodontic therapy
  • practical considerations of rotary NiTi techniques, with a focus on the modified Mtwo® system, VDW-Rotate™, and Reciproc® blue systems
  • criteria for optimal root canal filling
  • concepts of root canal filling using thermoplastic techniques including the Beefill® 2-in-1 unit and the Guttafusion® technique.
