Description

In the past thirty years we have been witness to many technological advances in endodontics. Among these have been nickel titanium rotary files, the use of piezo electric ultrasonics in both surgical and non surgical endodontics, using apex locators to determine final working lengths, and various obturation techniques utilizing new material science. What these improvements in technology have done is to allow us, for the first time, to seriously consider (during the course of root canal therapy) the 4th dimension. This is the dimension of time.This course will define and demonstrate what “Efficiency in Endodontics” means to both the staff and the patient. “Efficiency in Endodontics” assumes a constant quality of care and therefore, improved efficiency does not mean or imply a reduction in the quality of care. In fact, this course will demonstrate how the clinician can not only improve their efficiency but also enhance the quality of endodontic care delivered to the patient. Multiple aspects of improved efficiency in routine endodontics will be discussed and specific clinical applications will be demonstrated.

Objectives

Objectives
Be able to define "efficiency" from a clinical perspective. Fully understand that efficiency of care and quality of care are not mutually exclusive. Realize that efficiency applies to both clinical procedures as well as patient management. Recognize the importance of practical, user friendly clinical set-ups, and how they contribute to the overall efficiency (and quality) of a procedure. Fully comprehend the results of the author's pilot time-motion study of rotary instrumentation that demonstrated more time is wasted outside the root canal changing files, than time spent in the canal cleaning and shaping the preparation. Totally understand the rationale for the use of .04 constant taper rotary files. Recognize the multiple benefits associated with a master gutta percha cone that closely matches the shape of the final endodontic preparation. Realize that further advancements in technology and material science will improve both endodontic efficiency as well as the quality of endodontic care delivered to the patient. Agree that astute clinicians will put the needs of their patient's welfare before their own personal needs. Hopefully, choose to implement useful technologies and techniques that will result in both improved efficiency and better endodontic treatment for your patients. Simply put: "Make your practice patient-based."
