“Self Etch Isolation in Challenging Endo-Restorative Scenarios"
Effective isolation of the surgical field is the first step when performing endodontic and restorative procedures. In the last century, multiple materials and techniques have been developed. There are still several scenarios where isolation can be challenging and where we can take advantage of modern materials (self-etching materials).

During this presentation, I will present different clinical scenario's where self-etching techniques are employed to achieve efficient and effective isolation of the surgical field.
Learning Objectives: 
  1. Describe the mechanism of action of self-etching materials
  2. List the different scenarios where self-etching techniques can be employed
  3. Learn, step by step, how to apply self-etching isolation techniques

About the Presenter:  Dr. Carlos Aznar Portoles obtained his dental degree in 2004 from Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. In 2009 he completed a Master's Program in Endodontics at the same university. After moving to The Netherlands, he obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Endodontics in 2014 (ACTA, Amsterdam). He is the author of several endodontic-related articles and lectures regularly at national and international meetings. Amongst his articles are “Dehydration Induces Cracking in Root Dentin Irrespective of Instrumentation: A Two-Dimensional Study”; “Bioactivity potential of endo sequence BC RRM putty”; and “A Central Incisor with 4 Independent Root Canals: A Case Report” in the JOE 2015. Dr. Portoles maintains a private office in Haarlem, The Netherlands, which is limited to endodontics and endodontic microsurgery.
