Faculty of Dental Surgery

This session is about rotary systems provided for root canal treatments.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Identify the clinical indications for using endodontic rotary systems
  • Identify the types of available endodontic rotary systems
  • Describe how to select an appropriate endodontic rotary system
  • Explain the mechanical properties and tapered endodontic rotary systems

Endodontic treatment is known as one of the problematic areas in dentistry. The invention of rotary systems in dentistry was a revolutionary step in dental science. Endodontics rotary devices are aimed to decrease the risks factors, increasing time efficiency and the probability of having successful outcomes.

Ali Nankali,
Clinical Lecturer in Oral Adult Health

Dr Ali Nankali is a clinical lecturer in oral adult health in Barts and The London Medical and Dental School. In 1998, he took a keen interest in restorative dentistry, which led him to commence his extensive research on application of post and cores. Following his research, he proposed to the scientific board of the orthopaedic and implant department of the National Medical University (NMU) a number of novel inventions, including nankali post system, nankali bur, as well as new classifications for post/core and masticatory force.

Dr Nankali was awarded his PhD in 2004 by the NMU in Kiev, Ukraine, where he registered as a specialist in Prosthodontics.

Furthermore, his engineering background, in addition to his prosthetics and maxillofacial clinical experiences, helped him in achieving ground-breaking outcomes on his researches related to distribution of masticatory force and mechanical strength of teeth’s hard tissues, that brought him to the attention of the scientific community.

At his current position, Dr Nankali is involved with undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as regularly running CPD and other courses.
