Clinical Courses in Dentistry are regularly conducted at AHEAD Academy. New Delhi and Mohali. All patients are provided by the institute to the students.
A case of rotary endodontics was started today by a student of the previous batch, Dr. Sneha. After practicising Root Canal Treatment (RCT) with hand files, the students are demonstrated rotary endodontics by the experienced faculty, followed by treatment of the patients.
Clinical class in endodontics was held today at AHEAD academy, New Delhi. Students were shown instruments for rotary endodontics and then demonstrated on extracted teeth. The students then practiced rotary endodontics on extracted and typhodont teeth. Rotary Shaping instruments are replacing the conventional hand file systems to enhance shaping ability of the canal, reduce clinical mishaps like blocks, ledges, transportations and perforations. There are various Rotary shaping instruments that are available in the markets. Rotary endodontics employs electrically-powered instruments to perform the root canal treatment rather than traditional stainless-steel manual files. The electric hand tool is equipped with a tip of nickel titanium – a material that is five times more flexible than stainless steel. Due to the flexibility and unique movement of the nickel-titanium instrument, it can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway. The concepts, strategies and techniques for successful use of instruments were explained to the students.
