Summaries
Back Cover Copy
The second edition of Textbook of Endodontology continues the aim of serving the educational needs of dental students and dental practitioners searching for updates on endodontics theories and techniques. Significantly revised and completely updated, the new edition maintains the ethos of the original, facilitating ease of learning through pedagogical features such as annotated reference, core concepts and key literature. It features a number of new chapters on topics ranging from outcomes of endodontic treatment to managing endodontic complications to dental trauma. Additionally, all other chapter have been thoroughly revised and brought up to date to reflect contemporary knowledge and practice. Textbook of Endodontology continues its important function of providing lucid scholarship and clear discussion of endodontic principles and treatment, and as such will be an important update to its current readers and a valuable discovery to it new audience. Key Features: Completely revised and updated new edition Comprises several new chapters Punctuated with pedagogical features for ease of use Includes clinical case studies Illustrated in full color throughout with clinical images and detailed diagrams
