How do you obturate yours? When I have had the equipment (and training) I have used warm vertical compaction – no doubt that IS the gold standard. However, what is the humble GDP using all over the world? I would argue that not only are we using cold lateral compaction with sealer, but in many cases, we are sticking a big, fat, tapered GP cone in the canal with a splodge of sealer around it. Is that legit?
Obviously the landscape is changing with the popularity of bioceramic sealers in Endodontics – I use this time to ask Dr Ammar Al-Hourani about this too.
Is single point obturation cheating?
Should GDPs start using bioceramic sealers?
Does it even matter?
I hope you enjoy this group function – you can follow Dr Al-Hourani on Instagram via @theendoguys
