Contemporary Strategies for Teaching Internal Anatomy of Teeth
The importance of preclinical training in endodontics has been well established in the literature for endodontic education. Its primary purpose is to introduce students to cognitive and psychomotor skills related to the morphology and spatial and functional relationships of human dentition. The aim of this chapter is to describe different models to teach the internal anatomy of the teeth in distinct levels of the education curriculum in endodontics.
