Endodontic Procedure by “Following” the Contour

NEW! DentistryToday.com now offers this quick and informative area with
video techniques from some of the top clinicians in dentistry.

Dr. John West, Spokane, Wash, brilliantly demonstrates an endodntic technique for “thinking the procedure through” before going chairside. The “follow” rather than pushing or shoving the endodontic file during a root canal procedure is explained, demonstrated, and clarified. The different file sizes needed are covered, including when and how the dental assistant can make the proper choice for each technique. The taper characteristic becomes the focal point of the files being used.

Dr. West received his DDS from the University of Washington (1971), where he is an affiliate associate professor, and his MSD in endodontics at Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (1975), where he is a clinical instructor. For more information about Dr. West click here
