Some people say that dental podcasts haven’t given endo enough love. Episode 223 is here to fix that! Jason and Alan were joined by three general dentists that love endo to talk all things root canals! Dr. Mac Jones, Dr. Zach Meiners and Dr. Kevin Fryer join the Dental Hacks and talk about:

  • What’s the most common presentation of teeth needing endo in their offices?
  • How do these general dentists handle endo diagnosis?
  • What tricks have they learned about case selection? What to punt and what to keep?
  • How do you fit endo into a GP practice and make it work?
  • Hot access opening talk
  • Al’s bleach accident…on his dad
  • Click here for their endo sequences!
  • When do you two step your root canals?
  • What are you doing for obturation?

One of the coolest things about Cosmedent’s Renamel NANO Plus is the shades. It comes in a whole bunch of them! They’re particularly great for shade matching because Cosmedent’s composites match the Vita shade guide that you already know and trust! So not only is Renamel NANO Plus the nicest handling, nicest polishing composite you’ll ever use. It’s also the easiest to match shades with! Go check it out at dentalhacks.com/nanoplus!
