Grossmans Endodontic Practice – It incorporates the changes that have occurred in endodontic theory and practice in terms of materials, concepts and protocols.
It has personally been an intellectual evolution in bringing out this thirteenth edition of the evergreen classic Grossmans Endodontic Practice. The process necessitates oneself to be a student in assimilating the sweeping changes that are happening in the specialty of endodontics. It was as much a learning and enriching process as it was enlightening.
The twelfth edition brought out by us in 2010 re-established this textbook as the premier teaching and clinical textbook for students across South Asia. The current edition builds up on this platform by updating and revising concepts, materials, and techniques. The increased awareness and research in biological concepts of treating the pulp tissue has made us revisit the chapter on vital pulp therapy, thereby updating it according to the current clinical guidelines. We have incorporated two new chapters into this edition: Chapter 7, Endodontic Emergencies, and Chapter 11, Regenerative Endodontics. We have also included “Clinical Notes” in each chapter that highlight the pertinent important clinical aspects of the topic being discussed. This book contains over 1100 figures, radiographs, and illustrations, many of which are contributions from clinicians and academicians from across the world. The format and style of presentation has also been changed to make it reader friendly. Accompanying the text is a “Visual Masterclass” DVD presenting videos of important clinical procedures.
We have strived to live up to the legacy of Louis I. Grossman by ensuring that this edition of Grossmans Endodontic Practice continues to be an evidence-based resource for students and practitioners in the field of endodontics.
