Dr Miguel Martins Endo Day in South Africa

This workshop will form part of the Aachen University Mastership class in 2022 - one day open to a limited number of guests to enjoy the teaching of Endodontist, Dr Miguel Martins while in South Africa.

About the Workshop

Why is endodontics frequently seen as difficult, often challenging and also unpredictable? Simple. Despite many advances, within the past 100 years, endodontics has experienced relatively small developments in disinfection techniques and protocols. And this is of major importance with regards to outcomes. It might seem unbelievable, but up to date, there are still no evidence-based or gold-standard protocols regarding effective smear-layer removal and / or root canal system disinfection.

Delegates will learn to understand and see the amazing laser properties and their features for all endodontic applications: from the most "basic" endodontic scenarios to the most challenging endodontic cases, lasers easily perform the hard (cleansing) work.

Technology is meeting biology at all levels and penetrating medicine at an outstanding pace. Challenge yourself to better understand how laser technology works and how it can be an easy tool to boost your everyday Endodontic practice. This Endo day aims to be a clinical showcase full of interactivity, clinical demos and open discussions regarding Endodontic decisions and modus-operandis...

Endodontics does not need to be boring and lead us to despair. Be prepared for a simple light-endo-revolution based on extensive research and clinical experience!

Program Includes:

  • Basic Principles of Laser Biophysical Interaction with dental structures.
  • Properties of different lasers for endodontic applications.
  • Laser-Assisted Endodontic Therapy and all-round routine applications: RC disinfection, SL & debris removal
  • Laser-Induced apical drainage and abscesses decompression.
  • Management of Root Resorptions, Traumas, Canal sclerosis, Intricate anatomies, large apical periodontitis, etc.
  • Dealing with iatrogenic damages such, broken instruments, ledging, perforations, etc.
  • Laser-Assisted Apical Surgery

About Dr Miguel Martins DDS, MSc, PhD

Mastership Lasers in Dentistry: Clinical & Skills Lecturer

"MIGUEL IS OUTSTANDING!" say many of his students, peers and patients. He also comes with the nod of approval of his long-time 'laser-father' and legend, Prof. Dr. med. dent. Norbert Gutknecht who founded the prestigious Aachen Master Program. [South Africans may recall Dr Martins' sophisticated mastery of Endodontics lecture, including Perio and General Dentistry at the last NOMADS 2019 congress at Kyalami.]

As a researcher and academic co-worker, Dr Martins has published various original studies in peer-reviewed journals such as Lasers in Medical Science, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, and Lasers in Dental Science.

Dr. Martins originally graduated at the University of Porto (Portugal) in 2007, then specialised in Oral Implantology at Santiago Compostela’s University in Spain (2008), graduated as a Master of Science (MSc.) in Lasers in Dentistry at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany (2010), Masters Degree in Oral Laser Applications, Doctorate (PhD) in Lasers in Endodontics from University of Porto, and actively continues by participating in various academic societies, university research and lecturing as invited/keynote speaker worldwide. Dr Martins's aim is to provide a high-standard of dental care based on evidence-based laser supported dentistry, and special interest in his private Endodontic practice and Endodontic Microsurgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this an advanced workshop? 

Laser-supported Endodontics is a very simple technique, so everyone will be able to incorporate it into daily practice immediately. The most advanced technology aims to be user-friendly, and this is no exception. Nevertheless, we will also focus on common Endodontic complications such as abscesses, re-treatments and persistent / severe Apical Periodontitis, canal sclerosis, traumas, fractured instruments, root resorptions, etc. Therefore, Endodontic specialists or enthusiasts are also naturally welcome and encouraged to join.

I am not comfortable with Endodontics at all. Can this Laser-Endo day be useful for me? 

Totally! Endodontics is thought and seen as rather difficult and subject to innumerous sources of failures. The technique we present is straight-forward and any dentist is able to incorporate it into their general dentistry daily practice, improve their results and avoid common Endo failures immediately. Let the lasers do the difficult part!

Will it be a hands-on workshop? 

The laser-assisted handling and technique is rather simple and every case is supported by clinical videos and / or step-by-step demos. Furthermore, live hands-on will be available during breaks with the help and support of the SciVision team.

If I’ve attended Dr Boela van der Merwe’s Endo Workshop or completed the Mastership 1-year course, should I still attend this?

Despite any previous laser background or experience which is naturally welcomed, one should expect to assist a unique laser-immersive experience. This workshop with Dr Miguel Martins will be showcasing the highest level of up-to-date Endodontic practice, using the benefits of CBCT as a diagnosis and follow-up tool along with microscope magnification, all backed by extensive research and clinical long term follow-ups. Everyone is encouraged to join this once-off workshop / lecture day with Dr Miguel Martins.
