Full-Day Presentation (Lecture and Hands-On Session)

Restorative Endodontics is based on minimally invasive root canal preparations and bioceramic bonded obturation that enhance the long term biomechanical success of the endodontically treated tooth. Restorative Endodontics is based on a biologic approach that emphasizes debridement and disinfection rather than shaping for obturation. This Real World Endo presentation is highly practical and will describe numerous facets of clinical endodontics, utilizing a "Case Based Learning Approach." Clinical cases will be discussed in detail that will demonstrate both the Basic and Advanced instrumentation and Obturation Technique, as well some technique variations to handle more challenging cases. The principal scientific concepts for successful endodontics will be presented as well as new technology and techniques that emphasize responsible shaping and HA (hydroxyapatite) bonding inside the root canal.

A new instrumentation and obturation system (ESX®) will be introduced that incorporates the above concepts. All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session. Real World Endo remains dedicated to the preservation of the natural dentition through smarter more thoughtful endodontics. This presentation is a must see for those practitioners committed to clinical efficiency without sacrificing quality care for their patients.

During this lecture/hands-on participants will:

Appreciate the scientific concepts for success by incorporating a few new simple steps during clinical care.
Understand the importance of proper straight-line access and the factors necessary to accomplishing the task.
Recognize the many applications for fiber-optic ultrasonics in endodontics.
Understand how to properly use the ESX® NiTi rotary file and instrumentation system.
Recognize the correct way to use an ultrasonic in the pursuit of hidden canals.
Understand the term, "Hydraulic Condensation" and its application during obturation.
Gain insight into the use of the new bioceramic materials in both surgical and non-surgical endodontic care.
Participants will become familiar with a novel and very efficient (drilless) post preparation technique.
All attendees will understand that endodontics and restorative dentistry are not separate entities. Rather they are part of a larger continuum: The Endo-Restorative Continuum.
Please bring a file sample from your current rotary system to compare to ESX (a size 35 is ideal).

In addition, any accessed, extracted teeth you may want to work on.

Speaker: Keith A. Evans, DMD, MS

Dr. Keith Evans received his Masters of Dental Research in Endodontics and certificate in graduate endodontics from St. Louis University in 2004. He received his DMD degree in 2001 from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine and thereafter was the Chief Resident for the Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of North Carolina from 2001 to 2002. He is currently adjunct Clinical Faculty in the Department of Endodontics at both Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine and St. Louis University. He serves as lecturer and clinical faculty for the pre-doctoral and graduate endodontic programs at both schools.

Dr. Evans has served as Chair of the Illinois New Dentist Committee for two years and currently chairs the Endodontic section of the Illinois Mission of Mercy. He has served on the Illinois delegation to the ADA, and is currently the President-Elect of the Illinois State Dental Society Political Action Committee. He is a past President of the McLean County Dental Society and the current Treasurer of the Illinois Association of Endodontists.

Dr. Evans has lectured throughout the state of Illinois, including presentations at the University of Chicago, Southern Illinois University, and St. Louis University. He has also given multiple clinical endodontic lectures in the Chicago area and downstate.

Dr. Evans currently resides in Bloomington, IL with his wife and two children. He is an avid Illini fan and enjoys traveling and running. He has been a full-time private practicing endodontist in Bloomington-Normal, IL since completing his endodontic residency program in 2004.
