Webinars by Renato Leonardo D.M.D.

Technological Resources and Biological Concepts In Minimally Invasive Endodontics

Renato Leonardo D.M.D.

This course is ideal for the progressive general practitioner with a minimally invasive practice. Along with hands-on training, clear demonstrations and an educational presentation, lecture participants can expect information about vital and non-vital pulp therapy, the Anatomic Endodontic Technology (A.E.T.) System and the Apical Delivered Obturation (A.D.O.) System. The lecture will illustrate hand, rotary and oscillatory instrumentation of the root canal system as well as root canal filling materials and techniques. It will also discuss success criteria in endodontics and endodontic microbiota.
