The Terauchi Technique 

with Dr Massimo  Giovarruscio

Due to demand following the sold-out 'Art of File Retrieval' with Dr Yoshi Terauchi in January we are offering an additional course with limited places! 

We have exclusive access to the full recording of Dr Terauchi’s January lecture, followed by hands-on Terauchi technique supervised by Dr Massimo Giovarruscio (using your own Terauchi File Retrieval Kit supplied by us)   

Every delegate will have microscope provided and will remove files from 3D printed and extracted teeth using the Terauchi technique. This course is divided into two sections; theory in the morning, with a fully interactive hands-on session in the afternoon.

One of the iatrogenic accidents in endodontic treatment is an instrument fracture within the root canal system. An instrument fracture is very frustrating, and retrieval  even more so considering the associated challenges. Recent studies have shown that the Terauchi technique was predictable,  significantly more successful as well as more conservative in dentin sacrifice than the traditional techniques. This unique procedure in combination with CBCT for instrument retrieval will be shown and discussed on this course using contemporary concepts.

Course Aims
To date no standardised technique for successful instrument removal has been established. It is crucial to safely remove a fractured instrument. TFRK (Terauchi File Retrieval Kit) has been developed to both minimise dentin sacrifice and the time required to remove a fractured instrument and maximise the success without causing iatrogenic events. Learn predictable and minimally invasive techniques to retrieve a broken endodontic file using TFRK method.

The course starts in










Course Contents

  • Contemporary instrument retrieval theory

Alfonso and his team showed huge knowledge and skill and worked so hard at his practice at Queen Square Dental Clinic in Bristol throughout the Straumann Pro Arch course to deliver a fantastic programme. Thanks Alfonso!

Milena Ninova

Very inspiring experience! I do recommend the courses to anyone, who wants to improve their skill. Also very friendly atmosphere. Thank you Alfonso Rao and Straumann team!

Robert Jacobs

Delta Dental Academy provide excellent training courses thinking of every detail. They attract top speakers who put on excellent hands on programmes. The courses are well organised and you are often working on patients, or extracted teeth under magnification.

Christian Saghafi

Currently doing the 5 module endodontic course with delta dental academy taught by Massimo and can't speak highly enough great theory which is backed up by clinical cases, hands on and treatment on live patients. To learn from Massimo has been a great experience which I would recommend to all dentists. Look forward to every module as it is a pleasure to spend time with the Delta family who are all soo friendly. Definitely the best run courses in the UK and I will be attending many more with them.


I did the ProArch course recently. I was sceptical about the whole concept, but after doing the course, I’m able to assess the suitability of this concept and treat my patients in a better way. Alfonso explained it so nicely, and not only the hands on was useful, but the live surgery including the process of fabrication of the prosthesis and immediate placement was fantastic. It has given me a lot of understanding and knowledge about the pro-arch concept and the use of Straumann BLX Implants system is just fantastic. I would highly recommend this course and courses run by Delta Academy.

I ve recently attended the Delta Academy for the 2-day Endodotic Retreatment Course and it has highly surpassed my expectations. Congratulations to all the team for the friendly environment along with world class facilities, lectures and course structure. Highly recommended!

Kiriakianna Galanoudi

I can not speak highly enough about this team. Very well organised hands on courses with inspiring speakers. I participated in the 10 day Endodontic course and the Retreament course and I have already seen big change on my every day clinical life. Looking forward to the next one!

Helen Loubser

Very good course. (Implant bone grafting) I loved the practical aspect of it. Small groups and very hands on. I learned a lot and already use the knowledge in my practice!

Caterina Fuiorea

This course not only gave me the confidence to treat my cases with the best possible outcome, but unequivocally it has improved my technique, halved my working time, and helped me understand my failures and manage them and set up correct expectations . Learning in an Endo Specialist environment gave me the opportunity to see the day to day setup of the practice, materials used, and the associated protocols. The teaching method is through empowerment, with an abundance of patience and reflection. I found this teaching style including the theoretical part to be engaging. Prof. MASSIMO is great at making any delegate the best version of themselves, by bringing with his vast knowledge the confidence within your hands. Everyday I'm using what I learned on this course, I'm not scared of any treatment and my final Xrays are a proud achievement. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their skills without feeling judged.

Sheila Rasakulasuriar

It has been amazing, (not sure if it’s a course or a holiday as having so much fun doing this), Massimo and Federico were so down to Earth and provided us with very informative lectures and practical demos, full of tips, techniques and helped problem solve. The hands on was fantastic, we did procedures on plastic teeth and extracted teeth and did so much in the time we had. I have been on quite a few endo courses but this definitely is the best that I’ve experienced. The atmosphere was so relaxed and quite entertaining. Being a small group was an advantage as we each had individual attention. Thank you so much I’m actually finally enjoying endo. I think the biggest difference to this course and others is that we will by working on live patients, under close supervision. This will definitely boost my confidence.
