Summaries
Back Cover Copy
This second edition of Essential Endodontology capitalizes on the book's position as the major scientific treatise in the field. It addresses the scientific basis of endodontology rather than majoring on didactic methods of treatment. The second edition adopts a strengthened approach to the systematic analysis of the available clinical and laboratory evidence. Apical periodontitis is promoted as a disease entity, with the etiology, prevention and treatment being discussed. Already a classic, Essential Endodontology is regarded as a vital companion to the pursuit of excellence in postgraduate and specialist education. It has become a firm favorite with those sitting for the American Board of Endodontics and will find a welcome place in the libraries of discerning clinicians and scholars.
