In this video, we’ll give you ourtop five tips that are guaranteedto change. The way you do end up from now, onwhat’s up guys, i’m Zoh, i’m a foundationdentist working here in londonand, i’m ali. Finally, a dental studentstudying at newcastle and like mostof, you i used to hate endo, but over timei, grew to like it and it’s mainly down tothese top five tips that we’re aboutto give you. So let’s get started so this first tip actually blew my mindwhen. I was first introduced to it by anendodontist, so in my opinion, the mostdifficult part of an alteration – withcold lateral condensation – is getting allthe accessory points in they’re, so thinand flimsy that every time i try to put them inthe canals they either crimple up or they don’tgo down.


As far as i want them to so to makethe accessory points, tougher and more sturdyask, your nurse to spray it with endo, frost or farmmethod and then put a thin coating of sealer atthe tip, the ender frost makes it freezing coldand. When you put the sealer on it, it gets stiffso. You can easily slide it down the canal withoutit crimping up when i started doing this, i foundit so much easier to get the points, all theway down the canal and i could fit way more in so the second tip is to make your own surgicalsuction. So we all know you ideally use a smallsurgical suction tip to aspirate sodiumhypochlorite, but you might not have thesewhere you work. So instead you can actuallymake your own using the curly.


Saliva ejectoryou can use some scissors to cut them and it mightbe a little bit fiddly, because the wire inside butyou can just twist and turn, and it will separateyou want to get this suction as close to thepulp chamber as possible. So you can suction thehypochlorite before it leaves the pulp chamberso, there’s less chance of hypochlorite leakinginto the patient’s mouth through the rubber dam. This third tip will help you when you’retaking your working length radiographespecially with molars. There are multiple canalsand. When you take your working length, radiographyou could have three or four files in the canaland.


Sometimes it can be tough to know which fileis in which canal an easy way to differentiate isby, putting a different file type in each canal, sofor example for a lower molar. It can be difficultto distinguish between the mesial buccal andmesio-lingual canals so put a k-file in one anda head strum file in the other. It doesn’t matterwhat you put in the distal canal here. Becauseit would be obvious, then take your x-ray and onthe x-ray. You will see the different flute shapeon.


The files and you’ll know which one is whichand. If you don’t have different file typesor, you want to differentiate between threecanals, for example, on an upper molar. Youcould use a different file size instead, so our fourth tip is to use an ultrasonic scalerto its full potential. We could make a whole videoon the use of ultrasonics in endo, because thereare so many uses, but here are a few ways. Thatit can make your life easier.


Think of yourultrasonic scaler as a safer, slow, handpiecewith, much better vision. You can use it to removedentine when you’re searching for canals and it’smuch better than the slow handpiece, because youremove dentine in smaller increments, with muchmore control, and you can see better since the tipis very thin. Whereas the slow hand, piece blocksyour vision completely, it’s also the best way: toremove pop stones and pulse tissue when used incombination of sodium hypochlorite and, lastly, youcan use it to initially open up your canal orificeso. Our fifth and final tip is to use the thingsaround you wisely. So you know that endo, takeslong and patients have to keep their mouth openfor a very long time and the worst thing is thatconstantly having to ask your patient to opentheir mouth wider, so give them a mouth biteprop to bite on throughout the endo.


It makes it somuch more comfortable for the patient as it givesthem something to bite on and their mouth won’tslowly close every other minute. Another thingto use around you is your rubber damp. Instead ofconstantly handing back the apex, locator tip toyour nurse when checking for working length justclip. It to the rubber dam adjust the file and thenjust pick it back up. This saves so much hassle, andtime and finally, when you’re using an endo ringwith a sponge, instead of getting your nurse toput, the glide paste or calcium hydroxide on a padask them to put it on the edge of your ringso, you can just coat your files with a Glidestraight away without having to ask your nurse forthe pad, so those are our top five ender tips.
