Preventive endodontics - an argument for avoiding root canal treatment

van der Sluis, Luc / Kidd, Edwina / Gruythuysen, René / Peters, Linda

Scientific data supports this treatment as means to preserving a healthy, vital pulp.

Keywords: deep caries lesion, endodontic treatment, IPT, pulp vitality preservation
