Instrument safety and efficiency are components of our decision making process when choosing endodontic nickel titanium files for clinical use. In this CE webinar, Dr. Nasseh will discuss the role that instrument design and motion play in promoting safety while generating excellent outcomes. It will specifically address the role of instrumentation motions such as rotation vs. reciprocation and will describe the best ways to optimize each motion. Additionally, the best indications for use and contraindications for each motion will be fully discussed and demonstrated. After completing the CE webinar, participants will have a better understanding of instrument design, motion, and the various techniques for optimizing safety during root canal instrumentation.

At the end of the CE webinar, participants will understand:
• Clinical advantages and disadvantages of rotary instruments.
• Clinical advantages and disadvantages of reciprocating instruments.
• The application of crown down technique to reciprocation motion
• A novel reciprocation system utilizing the crown down technique   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
