Grossman's Endodontic Practice 13th edition

The current edition builds up on this platform established by the previous edition by updating and revising concepts, materials and techniques. “Clinical Notes” boxes have been introduced in each chapter highlighting the pertinent important clinical aspects of the topic being discussed for the benefit of the readers. The style and format of presentation has also been changed to make it reader friendly. Accompanying the text is a “Visual Masterclass DVD” presenting videos of important clinical procedures. Two new chapters were added: “Regenerative Endodontics” and “Endodontic Emergencies”. This book contains over 1100 figures, radiographs and illustrations; many of which are contributions from clinicians and academicians from across the world.


The Department of Endodontics of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, is honored for being invited to contribute with this outstanding book. Thanks to the Editors, Dr. Suresh Chandra and Dr. Gopikrishna, for this unique opportunity!

Conservative Endodontic Access - Mandibular Premolar

Conservative Endodontic Access - Mandibular Premolar

The principles of traditional endodontic cavities were established many decades ago and have remained unchanged over time. The principles of traditional endodontic cavities were established many decades ago and have remained unchanged over time. The  emerging concept of conservative endodontic access prioritizes the removal of restorative materials before tooth structure, of enamel before dentin and of occlusal tooth structure before cervical dentin. It disregards the traditional requirements of a straight-line access and complete unroofing of the pulp chamber and it emphasizes the importance of preservation of the crucial pericervical dentin (located 4 mm above and below the crestal bone) to the greatest extent possible.










Unlocking the Mystery of Endodontic Treatment Success

Anatomical complexities of root canals represent the main issue in the root canal treatment. Recently, micro-CT imaging technology has been used as a powerful research tool in endodontics. This presentation will focus on the complexity of the internal anatomy of teeth and its relationship on the understanding of the principles of canal preparation and obturation.
