Abstract

This book equips dental practitioners with all the information required in order to ensure successful endodontic treatment of children and adolescents. It describes pulp therapy from a holistic approach that highlights new developments in the field. Readers will find updates on the formation, structure and function of the dental pulp revealed by the latest single-cell technologies, and discussions on carious lesions and their impact on the pulp. The book examines clinical considerations in the decision to perform pulp treatment and emphasizes the need to integrate pupal diagnostics with patient-dependent factors such as behavior management and pulpal pain mechanisms. The second part of the book includes comprehensive descriptions of current treatments for each type of caries-inflicted tooth damage, from selective caries removal through direct pulp capping, pulpotomy, pulpectomy and root canal therapy for primary dentition to direct pulp capping and endodontic treatment of young permanent teeth. Traditional and new pulp-treatment materials are described as are the techniques and materials used to restore both primary and young permanent teeth. The book summarizes innovative biological approaches for pulp regeneration such as the use of stem cells. It is a must have for dental students, endodontists, pediatric dentists and general dentists with an interest in the subject.
