Objectives

This master’s degree will provide:

  • Training as an expert in the field of endodontics. 
  • Knowledge of new materials and technologies related to endodontics.

Once students have completed this master’s degree, they will be qualified to clinically tackle cases of endodontics or reendodontics in order to understand and value scientific articles on endodontics and be able to undertake a bibliographical review. 

It is for that reason that the objectives of this master’s degree are: 

  • To diagnose the problems that concern the periapical pulp complex. 
  • To acquire the clinical and cognitive abilities to tackle endodontic problems. 
  • To be able to make decisions when faced with endodontic failure. 
  • To be able to undertake endodontics and reendodontics. 
  • To be familiar with apical surgery and intentional reimplantation
  • To be able to deal with orthograde retreatments.
  • To understand scientific articles related to endodontics. 
  • To design a research project. 
  • To relate endodontics to other areas of dentistry. 

Presentation

Preserving teeth is the basis of dentistry. Currently endodontics is one of the specialisations within dental practice that is experiencing increased demand due to the lack of specialised professionals who can manage the high level of difficulty it involves. Knowledge of radicular anatomy and dental pulp states is a challenge to a general dentist.  It is important for odontologists to acquire the knowledge and skills that are necessary to tackle endodontic treatment and retreatments independently of the difficulties that these may involve. 

The proposal to offer an online Master’s degree in Endodontics is due to the high demand in endodontics within the dentistry sector. This master’s degree is set out as a top level programme within the university system, although without achieving the highest level of qualification offered by the European Master’s Degree in Endodontics. Due to the current economic situation many students who opt for part-time study find areas lacking in module-based or short programmes, since they believe that they will not provide enough work placements or fall short in terms of literature reviews and research methods. Online Master's Degree in Endodontics students will be odontologists who want to increase their knowledge in endodontics, with an education based on evidence, combining clinical placements with scientific knowledge, but who are unable to take a full-time or semi-exclusive three-year master’s degree.
