This superbly illustrated book provides detailed information on the causes of instrument failure during endodontic treatment, the factors influencing the management of such cases, and the diverse management options that may be employed to resolve the problem. Readers will find clear descriptions and comparative evaluation of the available methods, techniques, and devices. Complications that may arise during the management of fractured instruments are described, and the impact of retained file fragments on the prognosis of endodontic treatment is discussed. In addition, means of preventing iatrogenic errors from occurring in the first place (the best form of management) are explained, emphasizing that the risk of instrument failure is reduced if proper guidelines are carefully considered and followed. The book will assist both endodontists and general dental practitioners in achieving an optimal outcome when confronted with the time-consuming and challenging task of dealing with a fractured instrument within the root canal – a still frequent circumstance despite the plethora of improvements in instrument design, alloy composition, and manufacturing processes.

This volume offers readers a pragmatic approach to endodontic therapy for permanent molars, based on up-to-date evidence. All chapters were written by experts in the field, and focus on preparation for treatment, vital pulp therapy, access cavity preparation, root canal shaping, outcome assessment, retreatment, apical surgery, and specific aspects of restorations for root canal-treated molars. The role of micro-CT data in visualizing canal anatomy is compared to cone beam CT, and detailed information on current clinical tools, such as irrigation adjuncts and engine-driven preparation tools is provided. Important steps are illustrated in clinical photographs and radiographs, as well as by schematic diagrams. Tables and check boxes highlight key points for special attention, and clinical pitfalls. Guiding references are provided. Performing molar endodontics is often a daunting prospect, regardless of the practice setting. This is where “Molar Endodontics” is an ideal source of guidance for practitioners. Special devices and recent innovations in apex locators and nickel-titanium instruments have, however, made procedures significantly easier and more practical for non-specialists. This book will help conscientious clinicians to master molar endodontics with well-described and established clinical methods.

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.

"Nearly three decades ago, Samuel Seltzer and I. B. Bender pioneered the concept of developing biologically based recommendations for the clinical practice of endodontics and restorative dentistry. This concept was the cornerstone of their classic textbook, The Dental Pulp. Seltzer and Bender's Dental Pulp represents the evolution of that book and of the philosophical principles on which it was based. Today we know that pulp tissue plays a central role in both local and systemic health. This book presents the latest research on the dental pulp and its interaction with other tissues. Each chapter provides an introduction to its major themes for the busy clinician or dental student, as well as a set of biologically based clinical recommendations for restorative and endodontic procedures.
