Aims and Learning Outcomes

  • Principles of surgical endodontics and apply knowledge which is at the forefront of the field of endodontics
  • Limitations of endodontic treatment and the principles of minimally invasive exodontia.
  • Principles of guided tissue regeneration for complex endodontic situations
  • Management of complex and unpredictable endodontic conditions

Within the overall Masters course, the module develops theoretical knowledge and evaluation skills so that you acquire the ability to understand the application of complex endodontic situations.
