About this video

In this second part of his conference on modern techniques in endodontics, William Ben Johnson focuses on the traditional root canal technique, resilon and epiphany obturation systems and thermafil technique, among others. He describes the reasons for teaching the traditional root canal technique and comments on the effect that resilon and epiphany have on dentin. He also talks about the thermafil technique, which was one of his many contributions to the list of modern techniques in endodontics, and illustrates the rehardening process that the tooth goes through as well as the penetration of the dentinal tubules.

Johnson delves into the nickel-titanium instruments and lists some of the characteristics of the passive and active instruments. He also compares the use of passive and active blades and describes some of the large variety of nickel-titanium instruments that he has designed.
