This beautifully produced atlas is a revised translation of a second edition German work published in 2008 (Georg Thieme Verlag).-- Book NewsExperts from around the world present a comprehensive overview of the clinical practice of endodontology, featuring the most up-to-date information on how to treat problems of the inner tooth, the pulp, and of the tissues surrounding the root. The authors provide detailed coverage of all common endodontic procedures documented with full-color illustrations that demonstrate the various steps of each treatment.The atlas opens with a solid introduction to the basic science and general principles of endodontic pathobiology, microbiology, diagnosis, imaging, anatomy, anesthesia, and emergency care. Separate sections then guide the reader through instruments and materials, root canal treatment, instrumentation and filling, and postendodontic measures, plus other key topics such as endodontic surgery, traumatology, and outcomes.Features Over 1,900 high-quality illustrations, including full-color microscopic images and photographs of clinical treatment steps, techniques, instruments, and materials The latest information on Nickel-Titanium instruments, the use of clinical microscopes, adhesive fixation technology, and primary endodontic treatment and re-treatment Practical discussion of the pros and cons of each treatment approach Endodontology is an essential resource for all practicing endodontists as well as any dentist who must have a full understanding of modern techniques and approaches. It also serves as an excellent tool with which to educate patients about their treatment options.
The third edition of Textbook of Endodontology provides lucid scholarship and clear discussion of endodontic principles and treatment to dental students and dental practitioners searching for current information on endodontic theories and techniques. Completely revised and updated new edition Features six new chapters Provides pedagogical features to promote understanding Includes clinical case studies to put the information in the clinical context Illustrated in full color throughout with clinical images and detailed diagrams Offers interactive multiple-choice questions on a companion website
The second edition of Textbook of Endodontology continuesthe aim of serving the educational needs of dental students anddental practitioners searching for updates on endodontic theoriesand techniques. Significantly restructured and completely updated, the newedition maintains the ethos of the original, facilitating ease oflearning through pedagogical features such as annotated references,core concepts and key literature. It features a number of newchapters on topics ranging from outcomes of endodontic treatment tomanaging endodontic complications to dental trauma. Additionally, all other chapters have been thoroughly revised andbrought up to date to reflect contemporary knowledge andpractice. Textbook of Endodontology continues its importantfunction of providing lucid scholarship and clear discussion ofbiological concepts and treatment principles in endodontics, and assuch will be an important update to its current readers and avaluable discovery to its new audience.
A practical and colourful introductory guide, Endodontology at a Glance covers all the essential topics (diagnosis, endodontic therapy, pain management and outcome of treatment) as well as the recent developments that comprise the field of endodontology. Written by experts in the field, the book explores the causes and sequelae of endodontic disease and offers suggestions for taking an effective patient history. New addition to the At a Glance series covering a core area of dentistry Review style makes for the ideal revision companion Includes access to a companion website with MCQs for self-assessment and downloadable images for use in teaching
Pitt Ford's Problem-Based Learning in Endodontology combines the theory and practice of endodontics, providing the reader with information that is both clinically relevant to everyday practice and also evidence based. It includes a wealth of cases that span topics such as the maintenance of a vital pulp, root canal treatment, surgical endodontics and trauma. Each case is accompanied by full colour photographs and/or radiographs that illustrate the key stages in diagnosis, treatment planning, treatment and prognosis. In addition, the detailed commentary provides information on viable alternative treatment strategies, rationale (biologic considerations) for the treatment described, evaluation of the current evidence for/against the course of treatment and finally the prognosis. The book allows the reader to apply their existing knowledge to a range of clinical scenarios and to gain new knowledge and apply it to further clinical situations. In addition the reader will be encouraged to transfer knowledge and diagnostic skills from one problem to another and guided to improve their self-directed learning and reflective skills.
This unique book is a serious study of clinical endodontics that underscores the biologic foundation of endodontic treatment and seeks to bridge the gap between basic endodontic knowledge and advanced endodontic biology. Written by a well-established clinician and a researcher with extensive background in endodontic microbiology, this book combines invaluable histologic illustrations of endodontic disease with a robust clinical text that (1) describes the pathologies affecting dental tissues as well as their reactions to the clinical procedures and (2) uses clinical microbiology to explain the observed phenomena. Treatments of complex endodontic infections are presented for both vital and nonvital pulp therapy, and the influence of periradicular pathology are addressed in detail. Moreover, the authors wade into controversial topics with detailed and comprehensive analysis, including the implications of lateral canals on treatment and the causes of treatment failures and how to avoid them. The purpose of this book is to improve endodontic treatment, and the authors demonstrate how an in-depth knowledge of endodontic infections can help clinicians to synthesize the data from patient examinations in order to visualize what has taken place, understand the processes at work, and predict what will occur with the patient. An essential clinical text for comprehensive endodontic study.
Abstract: This position statement represents a consensus of an expert committee convened by the European Society of Endodontology (ESE) on Antibiotics in Endodontics. The statement is based on current scientific evidence as well as the expertise of the committee. The goal is to provide dentists and other healthcare workers with evidence‐based criteria for when to use antibiotics in the treatment of endodontic infections, traumatic injuries of the teeth, revascularization procedures in immature teeth with pulp necrosis, and in prophylaxis for medically compromised patients. It also highlights the role that dentists and others can play in preventing the overuse of antibiotics. A recent review article provides the basis for this position statement and more detailed background information ( International Endodontic Journal, 2017, https://doi.org/10.1111/iej.12741 ). Given the dynamic nature of research in this area, this position statement will be updated at appropriate intervals.
This lavishly illustrated, practical guide to endodontic treatment covers the latest developments in instrumentation and filling techniques. Ideal for all dental practitioners involved in endodontic therapy [root canal treatment], this new edition has been fully updated throughout and now includes a new author team from the Eastman Dental Institute. Practical approach to the subject takes the reader through every step of the clinical procedures from patient assessment to specific problem solving More than 1500 superb illustrations, including colour coded algorithms, present clinical, diagnostic and practical information in an easy-to-follow manner Offers sensible ‘best practice’ routes through often conflicting approaches to treatment A full chapter on radiography emphasises its importance in both diagnosis and treatment Includes a chapter on the avoidance of litigation Written at a level which ensures a wide appeal to the general dental practitioner and those commencing specialist training Includes discussion of the 3D imaging of root canal systems using microCT Discusses the use of NiTi instruments, both hand and rotary, which are used by an increasing proportion of dentists Learning outcomes stated at the start of each chapter help the readers plan their study
