Conservative Endodontics

Using Next Generation Instruments to Preserve Structure.

 

** COPY NEEDED ** Here is an article that should answer the question. What is conservative Endodontics? An good amount of text should be here written by Dr. Bassi or others. It should speak about Conservative Endondontics in general as currently a web search revealed no article that is devoted to conservative endodontics. Ideally, we would want to also have some illustrations, photography or videos that discuss the technique.

We will go into further detail about the technique here in the second paragraph. This should be purely informational and not refer specifically to the Logic file as we would like to get the best search engine results as possible. We really desire for this page to be the number 1 result when someone searches for conservative endodontics. In essence we want to “own” and “coin” conservative endodontics.

It would be ideal if we had even another paragraph here about conservative too.

Conservative Strategies

 

Strategy 1

Use Dentin Saving, rather than Straight Line Access

Root canal procedures typically begin with establishing a glide path with a hand K-file. As the goal is to follow the canal, little if any tooth structure is removed. ** Please Review **

First generation NiTi files, and even heat treated files, required straight line access to ensure the safest procedure and prevent file breakage and separation. The rotary file therefore “brushed” along the canal wall to enlarge the coronal third to allow for the file to be relatively straight as it enters the canal. ** Please Review **

NiTi files that are designed for conservative endodontics utilize the next generation heat treatment process which produces a flexible file and retains sharpness. This allows the file to closely follow the canal anatomy without excessive dentin loss. Brushing is not needed and tooth structure is preserved.  ** Please Review **

Strategy 2

Use Smaller Tapers from Initial Glidepath to Shaping

** COPY NEEDED ** Here we would like to provide additional ways that someone can go conservative. Here we would like to discuss some examples of techniques. Perhaps X-rays showing cases. We would ideally like to have some bullet points like this:

 

  • a great point made here
  • a quick fact here.
  • Another statement here.

 

Strategy 3

Use Fewer Files That Cut Efficiently

Strategy 4

Conserative Retreatment

Any amount of structure saved is a net gain for tooth viability.

Conservative Endodontic FAQs

** Please Review **

Is it really possible to not need straight line access?

While it does give visual access to the canal, those practicing conservative endodontics find that “feel” is more important that visual queues of the canal. They believe that saving tooth structure is worth slightly altering their technique.

How does this technique differ from Minimally Invasive?

While we applaud the effort and those practicing Minimally Invasive procedures, in fact that would be our ultimate goal. However minimally invasive often brings with it the connotation of doing as little as possible to the tooth structure.  Initial access is kept to a bare minimum, and requires new tools and signifiant training. Conservative Endodontics on the other hand, is a philosophy that encourages tooth structure savings whenever possible using with only slight modifications to traditional techniques.  Conservative Endodtics states that any amount of structure saved is a net positive. Therefore general dentists, and endodontics alike can practice conservative endodontics.

Are special instruments required?

The key to conservative Endodontics is a rotary file that is designed for the technique. Flexible enough to not risk separation while sharp enough to work efficiently. A microscope is defiantly encouraged.
