Management of oval-shaped root canals during endodontic treatment: literature review and clinical guidelines
9 June 2021 @ Online Webinar
Endodontic treatment is a highly demanding dental procedure. It requires timely recognition of the anatomy of the pulp cavity, knowledge of the interaction between technology and biological environment and great clinical skill. Root canals with ovoid cross-section often present an endodontic challenge, since this morphology can undermine the cleaning and shaping procedure and also reduce the obturation quality. Contemporary research focuses on strategies for broader contact of root canal instruments with canal walls, increased irrigation effectiveness and obturation optimisation. The aim of this webinar is to review the literature data, highlight clinical concerns and suggest treatment options.
Konstantinos Soros was born, raised and educated in Thessaloniki. After graduating Dental School of Aristotle University (2003) he enrolled on the 3-year postgraduate program of Endodontology at the same faculty. Part of the academic research for his postgraduate dissertation study was awarded 1st prize from Stomatological Society of Northern Greece in 2005. During 2008 he fulfilled his military obligations in the Greek army, where he served as a military dentist. From 2009 onwards he maintains a private referral practice. He has published academic papers in greek and international journals and has been lecturing nationally on various endodontic subjects, mainly about contemporary root canal instrumentation procedures.
