Summary Essential Endodontology is a treatise on apical periodontitis as a specific disease entity, which is primarily caused by bacteria infecting the root canal system. Research developments are presented as essential foundations for current clinical practice. The book has been structured to cover pathogenesis, pathology, radiology, epidemiology, prevention, treatment and prognosis of apical periodontitis. Related subjects include pulp biology and restoration of endodontically treated teeth. The international group of contributors who are world renowned provide authoritative reviews on their subject areas. Dag Orstavik and Thomas Pitt Ford are active researchers as well as teachers in endodontology, which is a fast-developing clinical discipline. The book is essential reading for high-flying students of dentistry, postgraduates in endodontology and other restorative disciplines, as well as dental practitioners who need to undertake continuing education.
