This book places pulp and dentin where they should be in restorative dentistry: at the center of attention. A basic understanding of the pulp-dentin complex is presented and its response to intraoral insults and restorative procedures described. The author starts by explaining the structure and physiology of these dental tissues and then transfers this knowledge to clinical practice, providing practical information and emphasizing a biologic approach that will optimize restorative treatment. Supplemented with numerous histologies, this book is a must-read for students and restorative dentists alike.
