This volume offers readers a pragmatic approach to endodontic therapy for permanent molars, based on up-to-date evidence. All chapters were written by experts in the field, and focus on preparation for treatment, vital pulp therapy, access cavity preparation, root canal shaping, outcome assessment, retreatment, apical surgery, and specific aspects of restorations for root canal-treated molars. The role of micro-CT data in visualizing canal anatomy is compared to cone beam CT, and detailed information on current clinical tools, such as irrigation adjuncts and engine-driven preparation tools is provided. Important steps are illustrated in clinical photographs and radiographs, as well as by schematic diagrams. Tables and check boxes highlight key points for special attention, and clinical pitfalls. Guiding references are provided. Performing molar endodontics is often a daunting prospect, regardless of the practice setting. This is where “Molar Endodontics” is an ideal source of guidance for practitioners. Special devices and recent innovations in apex locators and nickel-titanium instruments have, however, made procedures significantly easier and more practical for non-specialists. This book will help conscientious clinicians to master molar endodontics with well-described and established clinical methods.

"Nearly three decades ago, Samuel Seltzer and I. B. Bender pioneered the concept of developing biologically based recommendations for the clinical practice of endodontics and restorative dentistry. This concept was the cornerstone of their classic textbook, The Dental Pulp. Seltzer and Bender's Dental Pulp represents the evolution of that book and of the philosophical principles on which it was based. Today we know that pulp tissue plays a central role in both local and systemic health. This book presents the latest research on the dental pulp and its interaction with other tissues. Each chapter provides an introduction to its major themes for the busy clinician or dental student, as well as a set of biologically based clinical recommendations for restorative and endodontic procedures.

Fear of pain is the number one reason people give for not making regular visits to the dentist. At the same time, a majority of dentists report experiencing anesthesia-related problems during restorative dental procedures. If dentists are able to provide painless treatment, patient compliance and satisfaction are likely to improve. Pulpal anesthesia is a vital part of the delivery of dental care for restorative dentists and endodontists. Administration of local anesthesia is invariably the first procedure they perform and it affects everything they do thereafter. If the patient is not adequately anesthetized, difficulties inevitably arise. This book will help you successfully anesthetize your patients using the newest technology and drugs available. It presents the rationale, advantages, and limitations of the various anesthetic agents and routes of administration. A special emphasis is placed on supplemental anesthetic techniques that are essential to the practice of dentistry.
