Under the editorship of Bun San Chong, a team of international experts have come together to present the scientific basis of current endodontic practice together with 'hands-on' advice on what to do, and when and how to do it. Perfectly tailored for undergraduate dental students and those pursuing specialist training, including extended skills in endodontics, Harty's Endodontics in Clinical Practice reflects the latest clinical and scientific developments in the field with topics ranging from diagnosis and treatment planning to the management of the primary dentition, trauma and the relationship between endodontics and periodontal and systemic disease.
