Welcome to What I Wish I Knew by Dental Head Start. This is a podcast where we learn from people that have been there, made the mistakes, learnt the lessons and have developed into the accomplished dental professionals they are today.
It’s your weekly mentoring session.
We can’t do good endodontics without having a good access, and we can’t have a good access without being able to see where we are going.
Dr Matthew Youssef from ARIA Dental Education is better known for his skills with implants however he is also an exceptional general dentist and today on the podcast he shares some tips on how to better visualise and systemise our endodontic access cavities to ensure we are doing low stress, thorough and efficient endodontics.
Tips for Tomorrow:
1:30 – Maximise your Visibility – Always have a minimum of 3 holes for your rubber dam
4:00 – Probe the CEJ to find the level of the pulp chamber
4:50 – Take BW’s for endo
5:20 – Be mindful of your access cavity – Aim for access the width of your pulp horns
