  • intro lecture on the materials and methods for instrumentation the participants will use
  • hands on demo for instrumentation and obturation using plastic blocks and extracted teeth using multiple techniques.
  • instrumentation and obturation hands on for the participants using plastic blocks and extracted teeth. Participants will need to bring 8 accessed extracted teeth. 4 molars. 2 bicuspids and 2 anteriors. All must be fully mature teeth with closed apices. No third molars. Participants should not mount their teeth in stone. Participants will instrument and obturate all 8 teeth.

  • Gutta percha removal by participants of the previously obturated canals
  • Carrier based obturation technique removal demo
  • Carrier based obturation technique removal by participants
  • A detailed lecture will be provided describing the STA/Wand anesthesia device and intraosseous anesthesia theory and clinical technique.
  • Pig mandibles will be utilized to demonstrate the use of the STA/Wand anesthesia device for block, infiltration and PDL injections. In addition, intraosseous anesthesia will also be demonstrated.
  • Participants will have ample opportunity to use the STA/Wand anesthesia device and practice with intraosseous techniques using pig mandibles.
