COURSE DETAILS

This is a 4-day comprehensive program, best suited for general practitioners and fresh graduates. The course is aimed to train participants to identify complicated endodontic cases, while acquiring skills and knowledge to perform predictable root canal treatment for uncomplicated cases.


Program Highlights

  • Limited to 9 participates per module, facilitating to ensure quality training and individual attention.
  • Each participant receives an endodontics starter kit comprising of course training materials and consumables worth Rs.9000/, which includes 3 sets of Ni-Ti rotary files, Endo Access, Endo Z burs, hand files and many more.
  • Program timing will be from 9:00am to 5:30pm, mentored by Prof. Dr Jojo Kottoor alone for the 4 full days.

Instructions for Participants

  1. Kindly bring the following;
    a. A good WORKING CONDITION “airoter handpiece”
    b. As much as extracted permanent teeth you can procure (preferably maxillary/mandibular molars and upper incisors). It is recommended to avoid 3ed molars, as it has an unpredictable root/canal anatomy.
    c. A valid identity card
  2. The workshop starts sharp at 9 am every day and participants are requested to be ON TIME as one participant coming late, will affect the entire batch schedule.
  3. All consumables and non-consumables items including rotary endomotor and electronic apex locator, will be provided from the academy. There will be a course completion certificate which will be given to the participants at the end of module.
  4. Google location of our clinic/academy can be found in this link.
  5. If you need any assistance for accommodation, kindly contact reach us at 9447389363 or 8138000272.

Structure of Workshop

Participants will be doing hands-on rotary Endodontics on patient simulator mannequins, closely mirroring the clinical scenario. Training in this set-up allows realistic learning by virtue of challenges like operator position, patient position, indirect vision, intra-oral and peri-oral tissues impediments, etc.

The academy has a dedicated pre-clinical space that allows each participant to set-up an individual work station on the designated pre-clinical mannequin. This augmentation of physical and mental space, would allow for heightened application, learning and performance.

According to Prof. Dr Jojo Kottoor, importance of having sound theoretical knowledge in clinical dentistry & endodontics in particular is often underestimated, but, in reality, it results in better decision-making. Hence, this four day session will be a combination of theory and clinical practice. In addition, there will be demonstration and evaluation of each step under dental operating microscope for better understanding.

Lectures are planned in educating each participant the rationale behind each step in endodontics. Topics covered in the lecture.

  • Case selection and treatment planning

This one-day course will teach you rapid and simplified techniques of rubber dam application from single tooth isolation to quadrant dentistry in a full ‘hands on’ environment complemented by evidence based intense lecture.

Why we need Rubber-Dam?

Sometimes we do waste our invaluable time due to challenges with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, cheeks and lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And these impediments are always much more stressful than other important treatment aspects. Fortunately we have a great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics, called “Mr. Rubber-Dam”.

This has become especially true through the onset of the new coronavirus pandemic, as dentists have looked for ways to reduce aerosols while performing emergency treatment. In their recent algorithm for treating emergency patients during the COVID-19 pandemic , the ADA has included rubber dam use with a high-volume saliva ejector to reduce the spread of the highly contagious virus.

Structure of Workshop

  1. Hands-on will be on typhodont models with soft gingiva to simulate oral tissue.

    • Rubber dam sheets
    • Full set of clamps (Winged, Wingless and Brinker)
    • Punch, forceps frame and template
