Teach me how to repair pulp floor perforations.

How to deal with Floor Perforations in a predictable way? What is the best protocol? What is the long-term prognosis? Conventionally MTA is the best material, outcomes are always great and it is considered the ideal product for sealing the pathways of communication between the floor chamber and its surrounding tissues. From literature we know that is nontoxic, non-carcinogenic, non-genotoxic, biocompatible, insoluble in tissue fluids, dimensionally stable and in presence of moisture its sealing ability is not affected.

But we have also to consider that research shapes first of all innovations for doctors and patients. Yet transfer of new knowledge into practice is less self-evident than expected.

Many clinical investigations are considering Hydraulic premixed cements in putty consistency as an alternative for MTA for floor perforations sealing, but does really exist evidence on it and does really exist a protocol for the correct applications of this “New material”?


Touch base on Map System: The only way for simplifying the use of MTA in Endodontics.

MTA has been identified as the gold standard bioactive material used for sealing and filling permanently different Endodontic complications. MTA, considering its wet sand consistency, is difficult to handle and position and due to this reason Map System has been proven being the best device for

simplifying all the procedures that requires the application of MTA.

The purpose of this workshop is to explain step by step how is simple today the use of MTA thanks Map System. This in depth, hands-on course is appropriate for both general dentists and specialists. Upon completion, the participating clinician should understand:

  • How to assemble Map System.
  • How to prepare MTA and keep it always in the right consistency.
  • How to repair root canal perforations.
  • How to perform a pulp capping.
  • How to seal a floor perforation.
  • How to do a 3mm apical plug.
  • How to apply MTA in curved canals.

For each participant will be provided:

  • 3D printed model with reproduced all the clinical
  • complications
  • MTA
  • CaOH
  • Map System
  • Fibrine
  • NiTi plugger
  • Paper points
  • Endodontic Micro-brush
  • Endodontic explorer
  • Plastic carriers
  • Guttapercha points
