Evolutionary technologies have resulted in a new generation of instruments designed to access areas that traditional “round” NiTi cannot safely reach. After initial negotiation of the root canal space with a glide path file, these “virtual core” files complete the cleaning to the maximum natural diameter. The native anatomy configuration is sustained and intra-canal dentin conservation is optimized. This conservative root treatment is completed by bioceramic root filling technology that does not shrink, wash out or require excessive preparation on the coronal third of the canal space. Participants will learn the shortcomings associated with traditional NiTi instrumentation and legacy obturation techniques and how this new evolutionary generation of 3D files and bioceramic technologies will obviate these shortcomings and engender predictable endodontic success:
- Understand the shortcomings of traditional files that produce round shapes
- Understand the addition of 3D files to clean to maximal diameters with conservative removal
- Understand the use of bioceramic sealer in both cold and warm hydraulic techniques

Dr. Chafic Safi completed his postgraduate residency in Endodontics at the University of Pennsylvania in 2015, where he also completed a Master of Science in Oral Biology researching the outcome of endodontic microsurgery and factors affecting prognosis.
Dr. Safi received the Penn Endo best topic presentation awarded in 2014 and lectured at the Penn Endo Global Symposium, at the McGill Endodontics Symposium, and at the Journées Dentaires Internationales du Québec.
He is a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and is currently board eligible for the American Board of Endodontics. Dr. Safi remains on the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, Department of Endodontics, Philadelphia, and PA as an adjunct assistant professor. He lives and practices in Montreal, Canada.
