this book provides dental professionals with a clear understanding of current clinical and scientific knowledge on the various aspects of pulp treatment for both primary and young permanent teeth. diagnostic parameters are clearly presented, along with step-by-step descriptions of clinical procedures, including indirect and direct pulp treatments, pulpotomy, and pulpectomy. the rationale for the materials used in each technique and their individual merits and disadvantages are examined in detail. in the case of pulpotomy, all the materials used since the introduction of this treatment modality are discussed (e.g., formocresol, glutaraldehyde, ferric sulfate, and mta) and the roles of sodium hypochlorite, electrofulguration, and laser therapy are elucidated. special attention is devoted to pulpectomy and root canal treatment, with consideration of debriding and obturation techniques, rinsing solutions, and root-filling pastes. a further individual chapter is dedicated to restorations of teeth treated with the different types of pulp therapy. the various conservative treatment modalities are also presented, including specific treatments for immature nonvital permanent teeth.
the concluding chapter looks to the future and the potential value of stem cells in pulp therapy.

this book offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the restoration of teeth retained through root canal treatment, from the perspective of adhesive dentistry. the challenge of adhesion to root dentin is first explained and guidance provided on assessment of the restorability of endodontically treated teeth. the types of prefabricated passive post are then described in detail. the advantages and disadvantages of each type are outlined, with identification of the factors that influence post selection. further topics include the ferrule effect, evidence‐based clinical applications of fiber posts and new methods to lute fiber posts to the root canal without dentin adhesives. in addition, frequent myths are identified and dispelled. all aspects are illustrated with clinical and laboratory images, diagrams and high-resolution electron microscopy photographs.

in this book, leading experts provide a comprehensive overview of vertical root fractures (vrfs) in endodontically treated teeth, which may be associated with potentially severe damage to the supporting bone. a helpful categorization of the various tooth and root fractures is presented and etiological factors are identified, with discussion of anatomical and biomechanical aspects and the dynamics of root fracture. the clinical and radiographic features of vrfs are described and illustrated in detail in order to help the clinician to achieve accurate diagnosis in a timely manner. management of the tooth and the socket after extraction is fully explained, and novel treatment alternatives for the preservation of vrf teeth are proposed. the book concludes by considering medicolegal aspects. both endodontists and general dentists will benefit greatly from the guidance offered on the common and clinically challenging phenomenon of vrfs.

this book reviews the available information on bacterial disinfection in endodontics, with emphasis on the chemical treatment of root canals based on current understanding of the process of irrigation. it describes recent advances in knowledge of the chemistry associated with irrigants and delivery systems, which is of vital importance given that chemical intervention is now considered one of the most important measures in eliminating planktonic microbes and biofilms from the infected tooth. recommendations are made regarding concentrations, exposure times and optimal sequences. possible complications related to the use of the different solutions are highlighted, with guidance on response. in addition, clinical protocols are suggested on the basis of both clinical experience and the results of past and ongoing research. throughout, a practical, clinically oriented approach is adopted that will assist the practitioner in ensuring successful endodontic treatment.
this book is intended as a practical guide to endodontic diagnosis, pathology, and treatment planning. the coverage is comprehensive and encompasses such topics as disease classification, the endodontic armamentarium, anatomy, the role of different radiographic techniques, treatment decision making, preoperative management, the use of antibiotics and analgesics, and anesthesia. numerous high-quality illustrations and clinical photographs are included to highlight key concepts and findings, and best practice is documented by means of clinical case examples. the provision of concise tips and recommendations ensures that the reader will quickly be able to find solutions to diverse endodontic challenges. in addition, the most relevant literature is reviewed in order to support and reinforce the discussed clinical concepts. the book will assist dental practitioners and endodontic trainees/specialists in planning the management of any endodontic case from first principles.

this book serves as an introductory for dental students and a refresher source for general practitioners. the book attempts to incorporate most recent advances in endodontics while at the same time not losing the sight of basics, therefore, making the study of endodontics easier and interesting. advances in endodontics have been made continuously, especially after pierre fauchard described the pulp very precisely. endodontics showed the improvement in anesthesia and radiographs for better treatment results. the better vision, better techniques of biomechanical preparations and obturation are being developed resulting in the simpler, easier and faster endodontics with more predictable results. in an attempt to improve the book further, clinical case-photographs and radiographs are provided for better understanding of the subject.
