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.
