If canal constrictions prevent stainless steel hand files from easily reaching the Estimated Working Length (EWL), Zendo’s continuous rotation NiTi SOLO Pathfinder file has been specifically designed for effective glide path preparation.

The Glide Path

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted June 28, 2016

Establishing a proper Glide Path to ensure an unimpeded progression of all instruments from the coronal orifice to the apical constriction is one of the most important steps on the way to endodontic treatment success. Watch a 4 minute video for a review of the preparation of a proper Glide Path.

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted June 28, 2016

For the vast majority of cases,The Zone® 2.0, an instrument that has been uniquely designed to do the work of multiple instruments, can be used to create the ideal shape that will allow for ultimate clinical success.

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate as an Apical Plug in Teeth with a Necrotic Pulp and an Immature Apex

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted June 28, 2016

One of the most challenging clinical situations we face in endodontic treatment are cases where there is an immature apex associated with a necrotic pulp and a periapical lesion. Not only is there the possibility of the apical region of the tooth potentially being compromised due to the thinness of the dentin walls, but the absence of an apical constriction and moisture contamination from the periapical lesion makes sealing the root difficult and long-term healing questionable.

Electronic Apex Locators

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted April 25, 2016

Since their introduction in 1962 apex locators have played a significant role in endodontics. Their accuracy has been shown to be equal to or higher than radiographic methods with major advantages.

Sophistication through Simplification of Instrumentation
