About the Event

When non-surgical endodontic procedures fail, endodontic surgery is an alternative to extraction and placement of a partial denture, bridge or an implant. 

During the first half day of this two day course, Professor Torabinejad will discuss when to retreat and when to perform surgical endodontics. Various types of endodontic surgeries, including their indications, will be discussed. Steps in minimal trauma apical micro surgery (MTAMS) using innovative and new techniques and materials including ap designs, ostectomy, root end resection, root end preparation, root end filling, suturing and post-operative instructions will be presented. 

During the second half of Day 1 of this course, the participants will perform modern surgical endodontics on mandibular and maxillary molars of specially designed models and then on Day 2 will perform modern surgical endodontics on mandibular and maxillary molars in cadaver jaws.
