Endodontic Contest – from Retrograde to Orthograde RCT – contest #5


Endodontic Contest – from Retrograde to Orthograde RCT – contest #5

Author: Zaher Al-Taqi


The “Endodontic Contest – from Retrograde to Orthograde RCT” is over!

JUDGE: Dr. Marga Ree has chosen the best case!

I have reviewed all cases, and I selected Dr. Zaher Al-Taqi as the winner. My criteria for selecting the best case were:

1. Use of isolation

2. Conservative access opening

3. Conservative shaping of root canals

4. Complexity of case

5. Technical skills

6. Restorative follow-up treatment

7. Overall treatment plan

8. Documentation

So: congratulations to Zaher Al-Taqi, he did a great job on a very tough case: 2 separated instruments, one bypassed, one removed. It is often very tempting to sacrifice sound tooth structure to remove a fractured file, but he decided to bypass is, which was a very good decision in this situation. In addition, he addressed the perforation properly, and took care of a decent build-up.

Direct Anterior Restorations Contest – contest #4

Direct Anterior Restorations: the contest! Judge: Dr. Lorenzo Vanini

June 13th – July 10th – 2016

“The case was very complex because of all maxillary front teeth were built-up with excellent shapes, creating the proper color dimensions using all the shades necessary to achieve a natural, three-dimensional appearance (yellow-orange, white, blue and amber).

The dentinal body was constructed properly, building-up open incisal mamelons so as to obtain a natural and evident opalescence. Moreover, the shaping was very careful, with harmonic emergence profiles and a pleasant and balanced incised contouring; nonetheless, personally I would have slightly increased the length of the central incisors. The finishing and polishing were made carefully, achieving very nice surfaces; a little more micro-texture would have been even better.

Many compliments to Dr. Thomas Taha: he is an excellent clinician!”   

Dr. Lorenzo Vanini

Dr. Andrea Franzò and Dr. Manuel Alejandro Martín Toledo won the contest!

Dear colleagues and friends, We want to congratulate you all on this Posterior Restorations Contest: Direct vs Indirect. I’ve decided to award this two colleagues because they showed a good knowledge, proper skill and appropriate management of complex combined cases. Dr. Franzò’s case shows a nice combination of direct and indirect restorations, whilst Dr. Toledo’s case shows a full month reconstructions in which all four posterior quadrant were treated. 

Dr. Luigi Stagno D’alcontres and Dr. Leonardo Calciani deserve a special mention because they presented cases that were very well managed and with a nice final results.

We want also to thank GC for the winners’ prizes.
Thank you all for participating to this friendly contest!
