The Art of File Retrieval (Includes a free Terauchi Kit)

Course description

The easiest technique to remove a separated instrument; predictable and minimally invasive. All delegates will have the opportunity to practice the technique hands on, at amazing Londec facility! Every delegate will have microscope provided and will remove files from 3D printed teeth and from extracted teeth using the Terauchi technique. This course is divided into two sections; theory in the morning, with a fully interactive hands-on session in the afternoon.

Learning Objectives

One of the iatrogenic accidents in endodontic treatment is an instrument fracture within the root canal system. An instrument fracture is very frustrating.
Instrument retrieval is even more frustrating and considered more challenging in endodontics than any other part of endodontic procedure. The recent studies have shown that the instrument retrieval with Terauchi technique was predictable and was significantly more successful as well as more conservative in dentin sacrifice than the traditional techniques. The unique procedures in combination with CBCT for instrument retrieval will be shown and discussed on this course using contemporary concepts.

Course Aims
To date no standardized technique for successful instrument removal has been established. It is very crucial to safely remove a fractured instrument. TFRK (Terauchi File Retrieval Kit) has been developed to both minimise dentin sacrifice and the time required to remove a fractured instrument and maximise the success without causing iatrogenic events. Learn predictable and minimally invasive techniques to retrieve a broken endodontic file using TFRK method.
