Course Description
This course aims to provide undergraduate dental students with basic knowledge in
endodontics. It includes a series of lectures covering different aspects of endodontics
as well as laboratory sessions where root canal treatment will be completed on a
number of extracted teeth. The overall goal of this course is to train students to be
able to perform mechanical aspects of root canal treatment. More importantly,
students should learn endodontic diagnosis & treatment planning.

Additional Notes

1. As previously advised, students must collect as many teeth as possible to be

used in the practical part of this course. Extracted teeth must not be kept dry;
but in diluted Sodium hypochlorite solution. This home bleaching agent is
available in most supermarkets in a concentration of 6.5% and can be diluted
by adding 3 volumes of water to 1 volume of bleach to obtain the
concentration of 0.75%.

2. Students should keep an anterior, upper premolar and a molar tooth for the
final practical exam.

3. You should familiarize yourself with more clinically simulated conditions

4. Perform endodontic treatment in correct posture

5. Effectively work with reflected images in the mouth mirror

6. University rules regarding attendance, both in lecture, lab and make up

exams will be respected and strictly followed.

7. Practical sessions will take place in the Operative Dental Surgery (ODS) Lab.
