Problems in Endodontics : Etiology, Diagnosis and Treatment

Michael Hülsmann, Edgar Schäfer

Problem Solving in Endodontics is a now classic (fourth edition in 2005) articulating the American philosophy of treating diseases of the tooth root, pulp, and related tissues, but German-speaking researchers, teachers, and practitioners wanted a reference in their own language. The result was Probleme in der Endodontie: Prävention, Identifikation und Management published by Quintissenze Verlags-GmbH, Berlin in 2007. It turned out that the philosophy and approaches were different enough that an English edition was deemed appropriate. The topics include problems in preserving pulp vitality, the pre-operative restoration and placement of a rubber dam, problems in gaining access to the root canal system, visualization, assessing the success and failure of healing, instrument fractures, incomplete root formation, aspiration and swallowing accidents, and bleaching endodontically treated teeth. Though the most common problems encountered are described, readers are warned, not all facets of the profession are covered. Illustrations include x-rays and color photographs and drawings.
