This easy-to-follow manual presents step-by-step procedures that allow general practitioners to provide root canal therapy for cases that meet specific criteria and to recognize when to refer to a specialist. The authors, both world-renowned endodontists, believe that emerging technologies have expanded the role that general practitioners can take to treat patients with apical periodontitis with a high degree of predictability and success. In language and illustrations that are clear, simple, and direct, the authors guide readers through the steps of diagnosing the problem, understanding how and with what instruments to treat it, and performing several different treatment procedures. This modest-sized book allows clinicians who wish to expand their expertise to achieve a dramatic change in their practice.
