Endodontic Retreatment: A Hands-On Masterclass

Join Dr. Satnam Virdee on this hands-on course which will focus on overcoming the decision making and practical challenges associated specifically with endodontic retreatment cases.

Course Overview

Delegates will have the opportunity to take part in small group case-based discussions, re-access endodontically treated 3D printed teeth and subsequently retrieve gutta-percha via a combination of ultrasonics and hand and mechanical instrumentation techniques.
