    Cr Hrs: 1-2 (Varies)

    This course will involve two projects. The first will look at the different ways an etch enamel surface can be damaged prior to placing a sealant or composite resin. Extracted human teeth will be used for this experiment. The etched enamel surface will be deliberately damaged, then viewed under scanning electron microcopy. The other project will be an attempt to determine the fate of the artery, vein and nerve innervating a primary tooth once root resorption has begun. Monkey jaws will be utilized. Sections will be made beginning as the vessels and nerves exit from the interior trunk and followed until these structures enter the apical foramen. There will be an attempt to determine when there is no longer innervation and vascularity to these primary teeth. Additionally, an attempt will be made to determine if these anatomical structures are lying loose within the bone or if they are in a sheath once the root of the primary root has begun to resorb.

Universal precautions, essential for handling infectious agents encountered using extracted teeth, will be emphasized to model best practices. The use of rubber dam, indirect vision and posture is stressed throughout the course. Digital radiography will be used for the duration of the course. Patient vignettes are presented using the electronic health record (EHR) system and digital radiographs which students will interpret, testing application of diagnostic, critical thinking and application from case-based scenarios. Session grades are conferred by supervising faculty in 8 domains, scored using a grading rubric for technical quality. Competency is assessed using clinical exams demonstrating the student’s ability to perform endodontic treatment on a maxillary two-rooted premolar. Assessment is by two blinded examiners. Disagreement in scoring is referred to a third independent examiner; majority grade stands. Failure requires a remediation exercise, followed by a final attempt.

    This is a preclinical lab in endodontics that furthers understanding of endodontic techniques, focusing on multi-rooted teeth. This course runs concurrently with the Lecture in Essential Endodontics II (ENDO 203). Students will be taught contemporary canal preparation techniques involving state-of-the-art nickel‑titanium rotary endodontic instruments using torque-controlled handpieces, irrigation for canal disinfection, obturation and restoration. Training will also be provided in restoring endodontically treated teeth to adequate clinical function. Teeth with significant tooth loss will be used to simulate the challenges in locating canals in multi-rooted systems, along with understanding material choices and application for maximum tooth longevity. Core materials and the creation of post-space, created during canal instrumentation, will be fundamental to restoration of the tooth prior to receiving cuspal protection and will form the foundation for posterior restorations. Session grades are conferred by supervising faculty in 8 domains, scored using a grading rubric for technical quality. Competency is assessed using clinical exams demonstrating the student’s ability to perform endodontic treatment on a maxillary two-rooted premolar. Assessment is by two blinded examiners.

    ENDO 401 - Advanced Endodontics



    Cr Hrs: 1 (10-0-0)

    This course is designed to encourage critical thinking in clinical decision-making, management of complex and iatrogenic events and understanding the assessment of such treatment options. Advanced diagnostic aids, such as cone-beam computed tomography, are presented to provide the student with further evidence for a decision tree to assess best treatment outcomes. The relevance of implants in endodontic practice, dealing with dento-alveolar trauma in permanent dentition, establishing relationships for referral-based practice, endodontic surgery will also be discussed. Evaluation is by session quizzes and a final MCQ exam.

    ENDO 402 - Endodontics Clinic II



    Cr Hrs: 2 (0-0-78)

    This clinical course requires critical thinking in determining the pulp and periapical diagnosis, a suitable treatment plan, with consideration given to the strategic goals of the oral health of the patient in a group-practice model, and execution of contemporary endodontic treatment and permanent coronal restoration. This clinical course is designed to give the student doctor experience in dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of pathology of the pulp and periradicular tissues. Basic and clinical sciences, including the biology of the normal pulp and supporting structures as well as pathologically involved tissues, are correlated with the clinical situation presented by actual patients. Included in this course are comprehensive clinical knowledge, experience, and skill in the control of pain originating from the pulp and/or periradicular tissues. Treatment rendered will include treatment of reversible pulpal pathology with a sedative, temporary as well as pulpotomy, pulpectomy, canal debridement, canal preparation, obturation of the pulp canal space, and choice of post and/or core material. A major emphasis will be placed upon the diagnostic skills necessary to diagnose pain of pulpal and/or periradicular origin, including differentiating this type of pain from referred pain. Part of the diagnosis and treatment plan experience will be determining when odontogenic and/or non-odontogenic cases should be referred to endodontists or other specialists, including medical specialists. Student doctors desiring additional experience in the Graduate Endodontic Clinic will have an opportunity to observe and/or treat cases involving surgical endodontics, implantation, re-implantation, and bleaching of both vital and endodontically treated teeth. Clinically, endodontic cases are not considered complete until an effective coronal seal has been established and a final restoration placed. Supervision is provided by endodontic faculty who confer session grades in 8 domains, with sub-domains that include preparedness and knowledge of the case being treated, professional conduct and radiographic skills. Simulation exercises involving complete endodontic treatment are required every 90 days in the absence of any endodontic treatment. Assessment is by daily grade, successful completion of the SRTA mock board examination, with final competency assessed by a clinical exam demonstrating the independent ability of a student doctor to successfully identify and diagnose a pulpally-involved tooth and to perform endodontic treatment of all systems and return the tooth to clinical function with a permanent restoration. Minimal experience levels are mandatory prior to beginning a clinical exam. Assessment is by two independent examiners; failure necessitates challenging the competency following independent remediation exercises.
