The only dedicated bioaggregate hands-on course in New Zealand that covers all aspects of bio-aggregate materials.
Recent developments in calcium silicates, sometimes known as bioceramic or bioaggregate materials have
contributed to advances in the provision of new treatment modalities of endodontics and restorative dentistry
allowing the salvaging of teeth that may have been lost or required endodontic treatment.
Bioceramics handling is vastly different to most other materials and can be used in many areas within tooth
structure, pulpal structure and in solving iatrogenic problems in endodontics. To achieve the best from these
materials it is important to understand the material and select the correct material for the right indication. Saving a
pulp and repairing damage to an otherwise unrepairable tooth is possible with calcium silicates /bioceramics when
• Bioceramics overview – history, development and where are we now?
• How to use bioceramics in your practice - Repair of perforations, apical closure in immature and mature root canals, apical closure in surgical endodontics
• Practical aspects of bioceramic use – how to achieve the optimal mix, application techniques
• Identify scenarios that will benefit from bioceramics
• To be able to select the right bioceramic
• To mix and manipulate calcium silicates for multiple scenarios
