This book encourages endodontists to develop a sound technical and theoretical understanding of CBCT. The authors compare the capabilities of modern CBCT imaging with traditional radiography and also present vital information about image interpretation and perception to increase competence and confidence in CBCT interpretation and minimize overdiagnosis and subsequent overtreatment.

This book is a compilation of practical information shared by some of the finest clinical endodontists in the world. Most of the chapters are short and focus on how to perform a single clinical procedure. They are written in simple language with ample photographic support. This book provides guidance for most common endodontic procedures but also for some procedures that are less common, such as how to treat teeth containing Russian Red; surgical extrusion; root submergence; and decompression. Because most of the procedures described are performed under a dental operating microscope, there are chapters on operatory design for microscopic endodontics, microscope ergonomics for the doctor and assistant, and how to set up and use a microscope for photography and video documentation. In addition, two chapters are devoted exclusively to understanding and applying CBCT imaging. Written at a specialist level, the book serves as a desk reference for clinical procedures and as a daily practical guide, but it contains information that is useful to anyone who aspires to perform endodontics at a high level.

In recent years, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become much more widely available and utilised in all aspects of dentistry, including endodontics. Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Endodontics is designed to inform readers about the appropriate use of CBCT in endodontics, and enhance their clinical practice with this exciting imaging modality.
A Study Guide
Blicher, Brooke / Pryles, Rebekah Lucier / Lin, Jarshen
This comprehensive study guide provides an essential framework for reviewing the core material covered by the board examinations and helps readers understanding how best to prepare for them. With a focus toward clinical applications, the key topics of endodontics are covered in full, and the complex subjects of trauma and resorption are addressed in separate chapters with diagnosis and treatment protocols particular to these entities. To underscore the format of the oral examination, the authors have divided each chapter into the sections used in the examination — basic sciences, medicine, diagnosis, treatment protocols, prognosis, and complications. In addition, this book provides a comprehensive review of the scientific literature. Frequent references to peer-reviewed journal articles and endodontics textbooks also guide readers for further study and focus.
A Guide for Practicing Dentists
Zarow, Maciej (Co-Authors: D’Arcangelo, Camillo / Felippe, Luis Antonio / Paniz, Gianluca / Paolone, Gaetano)
Written by an international group of renowned experts in the field of reconstruction of pulpless teeth, this is a very practical book explaining in detail, step by step, the general principles of correct decision-making in endodontics, reconstructions and aesthetics of root canal treated teeth. How to avoid fractures? Should we carry out retreatment, or use implants? Should we restore pulpless teeth with direct or indirect restorations? How we can bleach discolourations after teeth have been endo-treated? How can aesthetics be improved in compromised cases? Should we use fibre posts? How can sub-gingival defects be treated? Can we opt for porcelain veneers or ceramic crowns? The aim of the book is to answer these questions and help practising dentists make the right decisions, which often require making difficult choices. Each of the 10 chapters include detailed photographs of clinical cases, descriptions of technical procedures, and practical tips for dental practitioners.

Choosing the right approach to endodontic treatment is important because failure can lead directly to extraction. Endodontic surgery is a therapeutic solution that is too often overlooked, which is surprising given that it is a reliable technique with a very high success rate. Not only is endodontic surgery more conservative than conventional endodontic treatment, but it can also be used to resolve difficulties that are inaccessible by conventional approach. Written by two specialists in the discipline, this book outlines predictable surgical strategies and presents more than a hundred clinical cases through each stage of treatment. This book provides concrete and practical information so that endodontists who want to implement surgical techniques can approach their first cases with the knowledge they need.

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a second-generation autologous platelet aggregation biomaterial with a wide range of applications in medicine and dentistry. PRF is already frequently used for procedures such as bone grafting and sinus augmentation, but its application can extend to surgical and nonsurgical endodontic procedures as well. This handbook, the first of its kind, is designed to help the clinician understand and use PRF in endodontics. It discusses the science, clinical applications, and techniques for specialists and general practitioners in a concise, easy-to-read format. The applications for PRF for each endodontic procedure are laid out step-by-step with accompanying photographs and case studies.

Endodontics is one of the fastest-growing aspects of everyday clinical practice. Linked to the sustained growth in endodontics is the introduction of many new instruments, materials and techniques. Keeping abreast of these diverse developments and applying them to the best advantage clinically is a challenge for the specialist, let alone the hard-pressed dental practitioner. Rational Root Canal Treatment in Practice – Volume 2 of the Quintessentials Series – has been written to help all those practising endodontics to meet this challenge. From anatomical considerations through the “thrill of the fill” and pointers to long-term outcomes, the many complexities of state-of-the-art endodontics are explained and beautifully illustrated in most careful detail. Rational Root Canal Treatment in Practice is a valuable volume in the Quintessentials for General Dental Practitioners Series – an outstanding self-contained update for practitioners and students.

The days of compromised retreatment are over. This book helps practitioners navigate each stage of endodontic retreatment successfully, from understanding the indications for retreatment to optimal reobturation of the canal. Written by a team of experienced specialists, this exceptional textbook explores the various options and approaches for retreatment and relies on evidence from the literature and experience from clinical practice to make recommendations for the most predictable protocols and techniques.

This book begins with a concise review of the basic science of tissues and then moves into diagnosis, treatment planning, and surgical procedures in endodontics, with an emphasis on the use of enhanced magnification, ultrasonic tips, microinstruments, newer root-end filling materials, and CBCT. Chapters on the maxillary sinus and its relation to surgical endodontics, soft and hard tissue healing, and adjunctive surgical procedures and considerations such as management of procedural accidents, resorption, root amputation, hemisection, replantation, transplantation, crown lengthening, grafting materials, and pharmacology are followed by an assessment of the outcomes of surgical endodontics based on current evidence. The accompanying DVDs present valuable videos demonstrating many of the procedures. These features provide the reader with a textbook that is concise, current, and easy to follow in an interactive manner. Written by a team of leading authorities and richly illustrated, this new compendium of state-of-the-art knowledge and protocols is essential reading for practicing endodontists and residents alike.

A thorough understanding of disease etiology and pathogenesis is cardinal to any healthcare profession and provides the framework for effective treatment. Consequently, a thorough understanding of the microbiological aspects of apical periodontitis is the basis for high-quality endodontic practice based on a solid scientific foundation. The first section of this book deals with microbiologic and pathophysiologic aspects of apical periodontitis, while the second section describes the best evidence for predictable treatment and prevention of the disease. Clinical techniques and protocols to treat endodontic infections are also described in detail.
