Endodontics deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp and periapical tissues. The goal of endodontic treatment is to change the internally infected tooth to an inert viable state so that it may continue to function as an integrated unit in the overall masticatory apparatus.
Principles of Endodontics I. An introductory course in endodontics defines procedures necessary for conventional treatment. Students develop the psychomotor skills required for patient treatment by carrying out simulated procedures in the laboratory.
Principles of Endodontics II. A complete course in the theory and practice of endodontics places special emphasis on the diagnosis and treatment of pulpal disease and the interrelationship of endodontics to all the other dental disciplines.
Endodontics Clinic I & II. Under supervision,
students apply the principles and techniques acquired in the basic
endodontic courses, along with basic science knowledge, to patient care and
management in the clinic.
