Topic Title

Flat Earth Endo – Science vs Dogma


Endodontics has progressed in leaps and bounds both practically and scientifically over the past 30 years that I’ve been in practise.  However there are still some legacy “beliefs” which many accept without intellectually challenging these against current scientific evidence.
We will review several commonly accepted endodontic dogmas and the currently available scientific evidence which might support or refute these.


  • identify common routinely accepted endodontic dogmata
  • present updated scientific evidence for or against these practises

self assess if we need to modify our beliefs or practise of modern endodontics
