Objectives

  • To provide the tools to critically analyze the literature and to adapt to the changes that the profession will experience.
  • To provide the ability to apply advanced Endodontic techniques in terms of etiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology and treatment of pulpoperiapical diseases.
  • Encourage working in conjunction with other areas of dentistry for the realization of a correct global diagnosis (multidisciplinary work).
  • To provide the tools to carry out research, especially in Endodontics and restoration of the endodontic tooth.
  • Promote the review of the different pulp and pulp-periapical entities and therapeutic techniques on the patient where the student has participated directly in the decision making process or has performed the decisions or have carried out the treatments themselves.

Accreditation

 

  • This Master's Degree is certified by the European Society of Endodontology (ESE)

Presentation

Endodontics is a clinical discipline that encompasses teaching microbiology, biology, biomaterials, tissue engineering, epidemiology and clinical techniques to cure or prevent pulpal and pulpoperiapical diseases. The European endodontics programme is designed to train professional dentists and stomatologists in the field of endodontics. The programme prepares participants to run clinical practices, teach or undertake research in endodontics. 

The course consists of a theoretical module that addresses topics in clinical endodontics, seminars on classical and contemporary literature review and analysis and the relationship between endodontics and other specialised areas of dentistry, and the study of endodontics clinical cases that involve other areas of specialisation. The programme also addresses more complicated clinical cases such as non-surgical root canal retreatments, endodontic microsurgery, intentional replantation and the reconstruction of endodontically-treated teeth.

Required tools and material

Students must own the following:

  • Electronic root apex locator. It can be individual (for example Propex Pixi, Dentsply) or integrated into an endodontic micromotor.
  • Electric endodontic micromotor with torque control. Must have the option to be used in continuous rotation and reciprocation motion. 
  • Rotary material: turbine, micromotor, adaptor (*) and contra angle
  • Reflex Camera + Macro Lens 90mm – 100mm + Macro flash anular. The camera must have the option to record video. 
  • Laptop (minimum requirements for network connection 10/100)
  • Dental periapical radiovisiography (Kodak 6000 or similar)
  • Elements obturation unit or similar.
  • Intraoral mirrors
  • X-ray positioning devices
  • Ultrasonic tips
  • Basic dental instruments (**)

(*) Brand and type of adaptor must be previously confirmed. 

(**) To be confirmed.

To access the University Dental Clinic (CUO), the student must bring:

— Personal protection face screen

— Full protection glasses, except in the case of wearing corrective glasses or magnifying glasses. In this case the full protection glasses are not necessary. All other material of special protection will be provided by the clinic.
