Prevention and Management of Broken Endodontic Instruments

Description:
The separation of endodontic instruments is a procedural accident that results in major treatment challenges and medico legal considerations in endodontics. With the advent of rotary nickel-titanium (Ni Ti) instrumentation the issue became extremely prominent. Extensive research has been conducted to understand the mechanics of instrument separation. This has led to changes in the manufacturing methods, instrument design and instrumentation protocols. Most recently, reciprocation is challenging rotary instrumentation in terms of speed and safety from fracture. Although the incidence of file breakage can be drastically decreased, it cannot yet be eliminated. No matter what instruments you are using inside the root canal system, the prevention and management of broken endodontic instruments still remains a hot topic. This lecture aims to review the most common preventive measures to avoid file breakage and to provide clinical tips and recommendations for the management of challenging broken file cases. Highly invasive, minimal invasive and non invasive broken instrument removal techniques are showcased through video case presentation series under the microscope.

Prevention and Management of Separated Instruments
Broken, separated, or “disarticulated” instruments can occur during the day-to-day practice of endodontics. No dentist should have a particular tolerance for broken instruments; however, it is important to know how to prevent and treat these incidents and how to explain the situation to the patient. Guidelines for prevention and management of intracanal separated instruments including Microsonic and Bypassing techniques have been explained in details here with different technical tips to help the dentist to increase the chance of saving tooth in the event of the breakage.

Dental Endoscopic Viewing System

Dental Endoscopic Viewing System
Endoscopy has enabled medicine to take a quantum leap in disease diagnosis and therapeutic management by allowing visualization and access for repair of injuries via minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques. Since their introduction, fiberoptic bundles and electronic video technology have continually advanced and fostered smaller-bore (viewing tubes) endoscopes of 2 mm and less, further improving access into smaller cavities and anatomical spaces of the body. This viewing technology has reached…
