About the Book

Complex endodontic problems that require further work on the part of the clinician can be time-consuming and problematic. This highly illustrated text, from one of the authors of the very successful Endodontics: Problem-Solving in Clinical Practice, tackles these difficult aspects and guides the practitioner through the problems and procedures involved.

The only monograph on this specific problem area, Advanced Endodontics will be of interest to endodontists, general dental practitioners with a special interest in endodontics, and postgraduates in restorative and endodontic specialties.
