1. New Dimensions in Endodontics-Lecture 
 
 
The lecture segment of this two part presentation will concentrate on two areas.  1) How to incorporate new material science, such as bioceramic technology into your practice and 2) How to perform root canal therapy in such a manner that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth.  The goal of this program is to have all dentists learn how to perform endodontics in such a manner that they can offer their patients a predictable long-term natural dentition option as an alternative to implants.

Included in the lecture component will be a thorough discussion concerning access, non- surgical ultrasonic use, instrumentation techniques, and a new bioceramic obturation method.  Particular emphasis will be placed on developing endodontic synchronicity between a machined preparation and a laser verified master bioceramic coated cone.  Additionally, a new obturation technique (Synchronized Hydraulic  Condensation) will be introduced and all participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session.

During this course, attendees will learn:

  • How endodontics can be precision-based
  • The importance of preserving coronal radicular dentin
  • The multiple benefits of developing "endodontic synchronicity" between a machined preparation and a master cone
  • The multiple advantages of performing a constant .04 taper preparation
  • The new “synchronized hydraulic condensation” technique featuring the use of bioceramic technology
  • How the use of bioceramics can improve your surgical results
  • Most importantly of all, how to perform endodontics in such a manner that you do not compromise the long-term retention of the tooth In fact, learn how to do endodontics so that you actually enhance the long-term prognosis of the tooth.

 

2. New Dimensions in Endodontics-Workshop 
 
 
The hands-on session will provide participants the opportunity to use "Real World Endo" techniques and to witness first-hand, how they will change the way they practice endodontics.  The hands-on session will be conducted using either accessed teeth (the preferred method) or blocks. In addition to instrumentation techniques, a demonstration will be done showing how to perform "synchronized hydraulic condensation."  Time will also be dedicated to "Preventing the Separation of Rotary Files" and the use of piezo electric ultrasonics will be available at all times.  

During this course, attendees will learn:

  • How to properly use the EndoSequence file.
  • The correct way to use an ultrasonic, in the pursuit of hidden canals
  • The ease of use associated with "synchronized hydraulic condensation"
  • How to create synchronicity between instrumentation and obturation
  • The multiple benefits of bioceramic technology in endodontics

 

Dr. Fleury received his Masters of Science Degree in Oral Biology and Cerficate in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He received his DDS Degree in 1984 from the University of São Paulo. Dr. Fleury served as Director of Predoctoral Endodontics for 6 years at both Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in Florida and Baylor College of Dentistry. He currently serves as Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Dentistry, working with Endodontic Residents. Dr. Fleury is currently in the full-time private practice of Endodontics in Dallas, Texas.
