Endodontology: An Integrated Biological and Clinical View

Domenico Ricucci and José F. Siqueira, Jr

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 influences 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 treatment.

Seltzer and Bender’s
Dental Pulp, Second Edition

Edited by Kenneth M.
Hargreaves, Harold E. Goodis, and Franklin R. Tay

This comprehensive update of a classic text presents the latest research on the dental pulp and its interaction with other tissues, highlighting its central role in both local and systemic health. The second edition has been completely revised to incorporate new chapters featuring the most topical issues in research and clinical practice, including developments in stem cell research and pulpodentin regeneration, the effects of the aging process on the pulp, and the interdependent relationship of the pulp and restorative dental procedures. New contributors bring fresh perspective to topics such as pulpal infections, odontalgia, and the relationship between the pulp and periodontal disease. Each chapter provides an introduction to its major themes for the busy clinician or dental student as well as up-to-date, biologically based clinical recommendations for restorative and endodontic procedures. Practicing clinicians will find this information to be essential to providing accurate diagnoses and effective treatment.

Treatment of Endodontic Infections

José F. Siqueira, Jr

The ultimate goal of endodontic treatment is either to prevent the development of apical periodontitis or to create adequate conditions for periradicular tissue healing. This book provides effective treatment options for achieving both goals. The first section of the book details the microbiologic and pathophysiologic aspects of apical periodontitis. The second section focuses on the principles and practice of predictable en­­­­­d­odontic treatment and the prevention of apical periodontitis. In this way, a thorough understanding of disease etiology, pathogenesis, and host-pathogen interaction issues sets the groundwork for effective endodontic treatment.

Endo-Periodontal Lesions

Edoardo Foce

Endodontic and periodontal lesions can manifest identical symptoms despite originating from separate pathogens, and traditional classification has reinforced etiologic imprecision in both diagnosis and treatment. Supported by a thorough analysis of the diagnostic, etiopathogenic, and clinical factors, the author of this succinct book proposes new terminology and a simplified classification of endo-periodontal lesions that shed light on an ambiguous pathologic situation that is often misinterpreted in clinical practice. Step-by-step, the reader is guided through a systematic differential diagnosis in order to distinguish the signs and symptoms arising from each etiology, which determine how to proceed with appropriate treatment.

Practical Lessons in
Endodontic Treatment

Donald E. Arens,
Alan H. Gluskin, Christine I. Peters, and Ove A. Peters

This companion to the popular book Practical Lessons in Endodontic Surgery offers expert guidance to clinicians who have limited experience in the nonsurgical procedures involved in root canal therapy. Synthesizing the latest clinical concepts and technologies with tried-and-true traditional treatment methods, it introduces readers to the challenges associated with nonsurgical endodontics and delivers realistic solutions in a clear, step-by-step, “lesson-based” format. Each of the 42 lessons offers useful, workable, and, above all, practical information and recommendations covering a specific aspect of endodontic care.

Reintervention in Endodontics

Mario Luiz Zuolo, Daniel Kherlakian, José Eduardo de Mello, Jr,
Maria Cristina Coelho de Carvalho, and Maria Inês Ranazzi Cabral Fagundes

This book helps practitioners navigate through each stage of endodontic retreatment, from understanding the indications for treatment through reobturation of the canal. Written by a team of experienced specialists, this exceptional guide explores the various options for retreatment and relies on evidence from the literature and experience from clincial practice to make recommendations. The authors analyze the parameters of initial success in endodontic treatment and present new materials, tools, and technologic resources for use in cases of retreatment. They cover the management of complications, including optimal techniques for correction of canal access and locating canals, even those that are calcified.


Case Selection • Technologic Advances in Endodontics • Access • Removal of Gutta-Percha • Solid Materials Removal • Repreparation of the Canal System • Reobturation of the Canal System • Managing Complications • Special Cases • Postoperative Restoration

Best Practices in Endodontics: A Desk Reference

Edited by Richard Schwartz, Anthony L. Horalek,
and Venkat Canakapalli

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, three 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.
