Surgical Endodontics
with Retroplast

Full-day course with live surgery and hands-on training

This is the course for you who:

  • Root resections seem to be difficult, unpredictable and have an uncertain prognosis.

  • Has a basic routine of performing surgical interventions and would like to improve your "endodontic surgery"

  • Have been on our course "get started with surgery" and want to continue with Retroplast/Surgical Endodontics

  • Have questions you would like clarification on before you start your first/next operation

  • Who may not intend to use Retroplast, but would like tips and tricks to improve your own method

  • Will be with "over the shoulder" in a small team


The course has a direct focus on achieving safety with root resections with Retroplast. We look in particular at how to locate and perform a correct resection of the root and how to achieve good hemostasis before the root filling.

We therefore easily skip over basic subjects such as anamnesis, local analgesia, suturing, pre- and post-operative information and focus on what you find difficult in this discipline. The teaching is evidence-based. We do not get lost in articles, charts and graphs but have a very practical and clinical approach to the subject.

Limited number of participants (max. 8 participants) ensures good and open communication, and a guarantee of getting answers to all the questions that you never dare to ask in larger gatherings.


There will be an alternation between theory and practice with live surgery by the two course providers

  • Material choice: Retroplast or others

  • Diagnostics and treatment options

  • Selection of teeth (level of difficulty)

  • Medical history (contraindications, anticoagulants, bisphosphonates)

  • Instrumentarium, headlamps and microscope

  • Surgical technique and suturing

  • Live operations and hands on training (Retroplast)

  • Information for the patient postoperatively

  • Histology, cysts and prognosis

  • Pain management

  • Closing & questions

The course entitles to 10 course hours
