Whether an endodontic treatment has an acceptable or not radiographic appearance, many times the aims of Endodontics have not been fulfilled. Prevention and treatment of apical periodontitis is the cornerstone of our treatments and when a revision of a previous treatment is needed many factors are to be taken into consideration in order to achieve the desirable results.
Guttapercha with sealer is the main root canal filling material we encounter when retreating a tooth. In the past, many methods and instruments have been proposed in order to remove the previous filling materials. Heat, ultrasound, solvents, dedicated and not rotary and hand instruments have all been used.
MicroMega remover is a brand new rotary file, dedicated to gutta-percha removal. It embraces many different design characteristics that make the task it was designed for safe and predictable. It can also be used effectively to remove carrier based obturation materials. Of course, the retreatment process does not only involve the renewal of the root canal filling materials and many times mishaps and mistakes also exist that complicate the situation. The correction of these is sometimes a difficult task and careful planning is needed in order not to create more problems than the ones we have to solve.
The purpose of this webinar is to present the characteristics of this file, and explain its advantages in order to achieve the desirable results in clinical practice and in any retreatment scenario. Moreover, they will learn tips and tricks that make the clinician’s life easier and the route to success less stressful and more predictable.
