Conference summary

The design and biological objectives of root canal treatment manipulation are well described in the contemporary art of Endodontics. Achieving these objectives in straight canals is considered a simple and straightforward procedure with all instrumentation systems available today. The problems of biomechanical instrumentation and obturation of the root canal systems arise when the internal anatomy of human teeth is rendered severely curved or even bifurcated and anastomotic. In such teeth, the accepted basic endodontic techniques and instrumentation protocols may be challenging to follow.

The aim of this workshop is to describe and practice  a new instrumentation technique with Hyflex controlled memory (CM) and  electrical discharge machined  (EDM) files for the safer and more predictable instrumentation of severely curved and challenging canals systems.


Workshop objectives

At the end of this workshop the participant will manage to

  • Understand the biological objectives of root canal treatment manipulation in relation to each anatomical challenge
  • Understand and appreciate the controlled memory thermomechanical processing and electrical discharge machining for the manufacturing of rotary files
  • Understand the philosophy behind the new instrumentation technique
  • Practice the novel technique in highly curved and doubled curved training blocks
  • Achieve a three dimensional obturation of the prepared root canal system by using greater taper gutta-percha points in combination with Gutta-flow bioseal
  • Take away tips and hints to use them in the every day practice



  • The problem of complicated canal management
  • A new technique with Hyflex files and guttaflow bioseal to tackle complicated root canal systems in endodontics


  • Practice in acrylic teeth (Hyflex instrumentation and guttaflow bioseal obturation)
