The latest edition of this well established volume continues to provide an accessible, lavishly illustrated guide to the current practice of clinical endodontics.
Now under the leadership of a new editorial team, Endodontics 4e has been completely restructured to provide a more contemporary approach to the subject area. As with previous editions, clinical topics are addressed in a clear step-by-step manner and have been specially designed to provide sensible 'best practice' routes through often conflicting approaches to treatment.
The new edition contains over 1500 images, many previously unpublished, while new chapters contain information on tooth development and the endodontic interfaces with orthodontics, general and oral medicine, and orofacial pain.. Developments in the latest underlying research, as well as advances in dental materials and equipment, are included throughout.
Now with a new contributor team to bring a fresh approach to the subject matter, this volume will be ideal for recent graduates wishing to consolidate their knowledge, GDPs needing to enhance their skills and any reader about to launch a new career through specialist training.
