Rome, Italy. Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa.
Rome is a fabulous mix of history, archeology, art, religious culture and delicious food; and while it certainly is the most popular place to visit in Italy, it's also a city that has remained true to itself – very much a place where locals live. The International endodontic meeting Endo Sapiens 2022 will take place in the downtown of Rome, one of the most modern congress centers of the city - the luxury "Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa.

The exact address of the venue is:

Congress and workshops
October 15: main conference day. October 16: workshops (optional).
The main event will take place on October 15th (congress day) in a big conference hall for a large audience.

The following day, on October 16th, there will be organized 3 demonstration workshops for smaller groups of participants (optional). "Regular" tickets for watching demonstration are available. There were just a few VIP tickets equipped with a working table and a microscope for doing the hands-on which are sold out, but mainly these workshops are intended for viewing the demonstration, this is why it is called a "regular" ticket type. Such ticket type allows you to be present at the workshop session, to watch the LIVE hands-on demonstration and of course to be part of the interactive discussion! Please note that such tickets are limited as well.

Bioceramics in Endodontics 2022 - Time for change
The advent of MTA about 2 decades ago brought about a significant change in the practice of clinical endodontics. A material that suited our work-space and the periradicular tissue, perfectly. It has been used from coronal most application in the tooth as a pulp cap material to the apical end as a root-end filling material. However, there are limitations to use of MTA e.g., inability to use for routine obturation, it's difficult handling properties and tendency to cause discoloration. Material scientists have worked on overcoming the limitations of MTA by introducing newer generation of Bioceramics. This is going to be an overview of the current research and clinical applications of the bioceramics available to us. Published research will be critically reviewed and clinical cases presented demonstrating the applications for obturation, vital pulp therapy, endodontic microsurgery, reimplantation, perforation repair etc.

Dr. Martin Trope
Evolution of root canal instruments. From Stainless Steel to Adaptive Technologies.
Now there is a movement to adapt the tool design to the inner anatomy of teeth and therefore new endodontic instruments have been modeled to integrate all variables essential for predictable canal cleaning. The super-elasticity and shape-memory of the alloy used in new endodontic instruments facilitates adaptation into canal morphology where traditional round instruments are unable to reach. This enables debridement and disinfection without major changes to the original canal shape and ensures minimal removal of intra-canal dentin. This conservatively treated root canal can then be filled using bioceramics that are more dimensionally stable than traditional endodontic sealers.
12:45 – 14:00
12:45 – 14:00
Dr. Syngcuk Kim
New Advanced Endodontic Microsurgery
As a starter, modern endodontic microsurgery developed and taught at our institution, Penn Endo, will be presented pointing key areas of importance using video clips. These include instruments, materials, biological principles and, most importantly, the success rate. This is followed by the newly developed approach, the 'Bone Window' Technique.

Endodontic microsurgery for a tooth with a large periapical lesion and an intact cortical plate may necessitate the removal of extra bone and cause delayed healing. In such cases, the "bone window" technique offers excellent exposure to the operative field and preserves cortical bone. Cone-beam computed tomographic imaging is essential for a presurgical assessment for indication selection and precise design of the bone window. The use of the 'bone window' technique which is a reliable technique, should be the method of preference when the large lesion with intact buccal plate.
15:00 – 16:15
15:00 – 16:15
Dr. Samuel Kratchman
Troubleshooting Surgical Complications and replantation techniques based on the latest Upenn studies
The presentation begins with perhaps the most important part of efficiently done microsurgery; positioning of the patient/microscope and doctor. The lecture then continues with management of the mental foramen, sinus perforation and palatal surgery. When microsurgery is not possible then one should also consider intentional replantation as a procedure to save the natural tooth. The latest techniques and several cases of replantations will be discussed with success rates of 88%.
16:15 – 17:30
16:15 – 17:30
Dr. Domenico Ricucci
Clinical Science of Endodontic Success and Failure. Update in Vital Pulp Therapy.
After pulp penetration by caries, necrosis and bacteria are initially confined to the pulp chamber, but soon the pulp degeneration process extends beyond root canal orifices and moves slowly in apical direction. Bacteria are observed forming complex structures, known as "biofilms", on the root canal walls, in irregularities, isthmuses, and lateral canals. Only their complete elimination will lead to endodontic success, with regeneration of trabecular bone and healthy periodontal ligament. Tissue biopsies from failed cases demonstrate how infection from the apical root canal walls or from complex anatomical intricacies can hardly be controlled through conventional treatment procedures. The presence of extraradicular bacteria and their possible role in determining root canal treatment failures is finally discussed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Endo Sapiens 2022 in Rome

What is a "regular" ticket type for the workshops?
The 3 optional workshops will be organized in the form of discussion and demonstration of the techniques by the speakers showing the demo under the microscope transmitting it to the big screen. There were just a few VIP tickets equipped with a working table and a microscope for doing the hands-on which are sold out, but mainly these workshops are intended for viewing the demonstration, this is why it is called a "regular" ticket. Such ticket type allows you to be present at the workshop session, to watch the LIVE hands-on demonstration and of course to be part of the interactive discussion.
Can I request an Invitation letter for the Visa?
Yes. If you need to get a Visa to enter Italy, after you register for the meeting we will prepare a special Invitation letter signed by the Scientific Head of the congress Dr. Ricucci. Please let us know if you need such letter by sending us an email.
