Michal Ganowicz DDS, PhD and Dr. Radoslav Lacina
A root canal treatment is complicated and often ends in failure. Every dentist knows that a root canal anatomy consists of the pulp chamber and root canals. Both of them contain the dental pulp. The smaller branches, called the accessory canals, are most frequently found near the root apex, but they might be found anywhere along the root. The total number of root canals per tooth depends on the number of the tooth roots ranging from one to four, five or more in some cases. Each tooth must be treated individually. To get the best results, you should have knowledge about root canal anatomy, you should use magnification devices like dental loupes or dental microscope and you should follow the rules of a root canal therapy. Does it seem too complicated? Do not worry! We prepared a practical endodontic workshop for you. You will work on plastic models of teeth and you´ll use hand and rotatory endodontic instruments. Also you can try to treat teeth with dental loupes or with a dental microscope. Our lecturers will show you how to do a root canal therapy in the 21st century.
Dr. Radoslav Lacina, a specialist in dental aesthetics and endodontics, founding member of the Czech Academy of Dental Aesthetics and Academy of Microsurgical Endodontics, will lead a workshop on Friday. You will work on special endodontic teeth models called Dentalike. Michal Ganowicz DDS, PhD, a specialist in conservative dentistry and endodontics, will lead a workshop on Saturday. You will work on "Buchanan teeth", known as true teeth replicas, developed by a fenomenal dentist Dr. Buchanan.
