"Problem Solving in Endodontics, 5th Edition", by James L. Gutmann and Paul Lovdahl, offers updated techniques and an evidence-based approach to the most common procedures performed at chairside. Ideal for both endodontists and general dentists, this thoroughly revised reference combines the precision of quality endodontic care with achievable and pain-free outcomes for the patient. Each chapter has been carefully designed so that you'll quickly grasp the anatomy, the instruments needed, and what procedures should be performed - all supplemented by boxed clinical case examples and tips. Going beyond problem solving, it also addresses the major issues in diagnostic, anatomic, restorative, periodontic, traumatic, and surgical aspects of tooth retention.


"For endodontists and general dentists, Gutmann (restorative sciences, Baylor College of Dentistry) and Lovdahl, who has a practice in endodontics, offer an evidence-based approach to common procedures in endodontics that covers problem-solving approaches and challenges to diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical and nonsurgical procedures, and adjunctive dental procedures. Restructured, this edition has new chapters and sections on diagnosis and treatment planning, especially radiographic images, differential diagnosis of bony defects, and diagnosis of treatment failure and nonodontogenic pain. The surgery section has been expanded to include new case studies and more coverage of indications and applications for surgeries, and chapters on irrigation and disinfection and working length determination are integrated. New technologies and materials are included, and coverage of tooth trauma incorporates established treatment planning outcomes, while coverage of tooth hypersensitivity and techniques to revitalize the compromised tissues in teeth with immature apical development has been expanded. Rare conditions are excluded." - Book News, Inc.
