This Isn't Your Grandmother's Root Canal: How Bioceramics Have Revolutionized Endodontics

Ryan M. Walsh, DDS, MS


Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Code: F Cost: TBD

CE Credits: 6 Hour Lecture/Participation |  Subject: Endodontics |  Recommended for: Dentists | Notes:

Root canals have been around for over 100 years, however, the root canals of today are a far cry from those of yesteryear.  Modern bioceramic materials have revolutionized the way we save teeth and are the front runners of modern endodontic and restorative treatments. Clinicians are now placing bioactive, bioconductive, and biomimetic materials into teeth and periradicular tissues with outstanding predictability and success. This course will help you incorporate this technology into your everyday practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • What are bioceramics: ingredients, applications, and materials?
  • What is bioactivity?
  • Become familiar with modern bioceramic materials.
  • Evaluate key similarities and differences among bioceramic materials.
  • Evaluate factors impacting the success of bioceramic materials.
  • Case selection for bioceramics?
  • Bioceramics for applications other than endodontics.
