"Essentials of Endodontics"

ISBN No.: 978-81-922977-0-5

Pages : 598; MRP: Rs.1,170/- per copy

Endodontics is fundamental to the modern clinical practice of dentistry. As evidenced by this timely, authoritative book titled "Essentials of Endodontics" by Quintessence (India), the subject of endodontics has, over the years, grown and expanded to become a multifaceted branch of the art and science of dentistry.

As in all branches of dentistry, successful clinical outcomes are highly dependent on the knowledge, understanding, skill, and meticulous attention to detail by the clinician. This book, through the careful structuring and presentation by Dr. Vimal K. Sikri, an eminent endodontist, (Principal, Professor and Head, Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Punjab Government Dental College and Hospital, Amritsar) and many eminent contributors, provides an opportunity to develop a sound understanding and knowledge of contemporary endodontics. This is the sixth textbook by the author.

Given the appropriate application of this knowledge and understanding, those who read and otherwise consult this "treasure house" of information should be able to look forward to practicing highly effective and professionally rewarding endodontics.

Dr. Sikri along with contributors and the publishers are to be congratulated on the way in which they have lucidly presented a considerable mass of important information in respect of modern endodontics in an easy to read, user friendly, and extensively illustrated text. The book incorporates all the recent advancements in the subject of endodontics. The chapter on "Resinifying Therapy" is added for the first time in any book on endodontics. The book covers the syllabi as prescribed by Dental Council of India.

Dr. Sikri fulfills his mission in sharing his expert knowledge and understanding, enthusiasm, and quest for excellence in "principle-based" endodontics.

This book is highly recommended to both students and practitioners wishing to provide their patients with high quality, state of the art endodontics. Endodontics as presented in this book will enhance clinical success in the management of diseased and damaged teeth with a compromised, let alone non-vital, pulpo-dentinal complex.
