Contemporary Endodontics Starting Today

Dr. Carlos Ramos | 7 CE Credits


Proper cleaning and shaping of the canal space is a prerequisite for achieving clinical success in endodontics. Studies have shown that the best movement to be applied in endodontic instruments is Roane’s Balanced Force technique. The engine-driven Balanced Force, or asymmetric reciprocating motion, has recently been applied to specifically designed nickel-titanium instruments, reducing the risk of fracture due to the accumulation of metal fatigue, which is the leading limitation of rotary nickel-titanium instruments. Though three times safer than the rotary movement, reciprocation alone has a downside of debris accumulation inside the canal.

The main goal of this comprehensive hands-on course is to take the attendee through all the aspects needed to take the practice to the next level by utilizing a simple and efficient endodontic technique, presenting a new instrumentation system based on the safety of reciprocation allied to the efficiency of rotary movement. In a few hours, the attendee will gain practical skills that can be immediately incorporated into the office.

You Will Learn

  • Determine the benefits and limitations of reciprocation and rotation
  • Comprehend the importance of file design and how this aspect can improve instrumentation results
  • Determine the working length electronically
  • Master an intuitive 2-file instrumentation technique, taking advantage of the two different kinematics
  • Perform an outstanding cleaning using ultrasonification
  • Understand the application of MTA repair cement
  • Accomplish an effective single-cone obturation technique

Dr. Carlos Ramos

Dr. Carlos Ramos graduated in 1987 with a degree in dentistry from the State University of Londrina in Brazil, and then received a scholarship to study in Japan. In 1990, he finished his residency in endodontics at University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he also attended a program in endodontics and received a Master of Science degree in 1993. In 1997, he then completed a PhD program, the same year he published his first book. From 1995 to 2012, he worked as a professor of endodontics at the State University of Londrina, where he coordinated the endodontics sector. During this time, he published three books and wrote more than a dozen chapters for various endodontics books. This was accomplished while working part-time exclusively as an endodontic specialist at his private office from 1987 to 2012. He has been granted four international patents, which have brought different devices to the world marketplace that use these patented technologies. He is an international speaker in endodontics, presenting lectures, hands-on workshops, and conferences worldwide each year. Dr. Ramos is the Clinical Affairs Endodontics Manager at Ultradent Products, Inc.
