Three-dimensional endodontic obturation the safest and easiest way possible by Barry L. Musikant, DMD, FACD, FICD

Three-dimensional endodontic obturation the safest and easiest way possible

06/30/2015

When we talk about three-dimensional obturation, various thermoplastic techniques come to mind. Endodontics expert Dr. Barry L. Musikant says that by using a passive obturation technique, we can scrupulously avoid the introduction of stresses, maintain the accurate placement of the gutta-percha point, and avoid the introduction of voids that would compromise the seal. The fact that the employment of this technique is simpler and far less expensive is a wonderful marketing feature, but does not surpass the fact that it is safer and kinder to the tooth.

An often-overlooked use of Locator attachments is the stabilization of removable partial dentures. Dr. John A. Hodges explains how Locators can improve retention and esthetics, and ultimately result in more patient referrals and happier patients.
