Endodontic Microbiology is a major new work on the microbiology and clinical treatment of endodontic pathosis. Composed of contributions from the leading educators and researchers in the field, this authoritative text offers contemporary evidence and scholarship, bringing the science of endodontic microbiology to clinical practice.
Endodontic Microbiology emphasizes the importance of the biological sciences to understanding endodontic disease and its effective management.
The book thoroughly examines the expanding and evolving body of knowledge about endodontic microbiology. The topics covered include primary localized and spreading infections, persistent and resistant microorganisms, virulence factors, effective antimicrobials
agents and strategies and systemic dissemination of endodontic microorganisms. Written by preeminent experts, Endodontic Microbiology summarizes contemporary thought in the field.
- Endodontic microbiology focuses on the infectious nature and clinical treatment of endodontic pathosis
- Surveys contemporary evidence and practice in endodontic microbiology and management of infections
- Brings together contributions from leading educators and researchers in the field
- Promotes the centrality of biological principles to understanding and managing endodontic diseases
- Links science and in–depth scholarship with clinical practice
Endodontic Microbiology is aimed at predoctoral and postgraduate endodontics students, the practicing endodontist, particularly those studying for their Specialty Board exams, and researchers in the field. This thorough reference is also valuable for oral microbiologists.
