NuEndo, Rethinking Endodontics: A Systematic Approach to Diagnosis and Case Selection

SKU: 9781735149745 Categories: ,

Price: $189.99


This book walks you through the endodontic evaluative process from the perspective of a clinically practicing endodontist. It’s all the stuff you didn’t get in dental school. It begins with the patient’s chief complaint, then follows a nonlinear format— solely based on your patient’s specific clinical scenario. It constantly answers the “what’s next?” question. The systematic flow charts are fully supported by evidence-based narratives, radiographs, and clinical photographs.

For the general dentist and the experienced endodontist alike, NuEndo is both a guide and a reference tool for the complex processes of endodontic diagnosis, prognosis, and case selection. You will come to fully understand the dynamics of the pulpal-dentin complex, the underlying conditions related to pulpal and periapical disease, and the methods surrounding its assessment. NuEndo makes the complex straightforward by using easy-to-follow flow diagrams for every aspect of endodontic diagnosis.

  • Arm yourself with rational, evidence-based thought processes and use them to reinforce your clinical decisions and treatment recommendations
  • Build critical thinking skills that will hone your diagnostic and prognostic abilities
  • Follow well-developed and structured arguments to help you decide “what’s next?” for any given set of preexisting patient conditions.

Book Introduction:
  • Knowledge about the science of endodontics can be separated from its clinical application. It is possible to technically perform root canal treatment without any knowledge of the science whatsoever. It is equally possible to understand the science completely, yet not understand how to execute the technique. Although one can find several titles related to endodontics, there remains a clear need for an approachable and understandable text about how the process is carried out and how the physical evidence correlates with the theoretical and technical framework. This book attempts to do that.
  • This book is a teaching tool as much as a learning tool. Many techniques described in these pages are neither original nor novel. Most of the ideas and concepts are derived from the volumes of clinical research and textbooks available to all. This book merely presents an interpretation of those ideas and concepts, arranged systematically and logically. This book simplifies a complex process. It is for those who want to understand endodontics more deeply from the perspective of a clinically practicing endodontist.
  • There are known limitations in the techniques. Our models have a strong congruence with the knowledge of integrated biological systems and their relationship to external variables; that is why the clinical practice of endodontics continues to produce mostly favorable results. However, our current models fall short of satisfying all we think we understand about science. They do not explain why some treatments appear to succeed even though they clearly violate our accepted model. We know a tremendous amount about how endodontics works, but not nearly enough.
