Choosing the right approach to endodontic treatment is important because failure can lead directly to extraction. Endodontic surgery is a therapeutic solution that is too often overlooked, which is surprising given that it is a reliable technique with a very high success rate. Not only isendodontic surgery more conservative than conventional endodontic treatment, but it can also be used to resolve difficulties that are inaccessible by conventional approach. Written by two specialists in the discipline, this book outlines predictable surgical strategies and presents more than a hundred clinical cases through each stage of treatment. This book provides concrete and practical information so that endodontists who want to implement surgical techniques can approach their first cases with the knowledge they need.
Dr. Bertrand Khayat received his DDS degree at the University of Paris. He obtained his Certificate in Endodontics and his Masters of Science at the University of Washington in 1988. A pioneer in the use of the microscope in Endodontics, he also designed several surgical instruments including ultrasonic tips for surgical retropreparation. In addition to his extensive experience and expertise in Endodontic Surgery, he lectures internationally while maintaining his private practice in Conventional and Surgical Endodontics in Paris.
Dr. Guillaume Jouanny received his DDS degree at the University of Paris. He earned his Certificate in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015, where he received comprehensive training in Microsurgical Endodontics. He returned to France where he teaches at the University level. In addition to his private practice in Paris, he lectures on Surgical Endodontics, among other Endodontic topics, worldwide.
The authors have collaborated for the last decade on multiple publications and a textbook dedicated to Endodontic Microsurgery in French. Together, they founded a clinical training program that welcomes international dentists seeking mastery in Surgical Endodontics.
