Clinical Success in Endodontic Retreatment


Stéphane Simon

Wilhelm-Joseph Pertot


Endodontic retreatment is technically more difficult to perform, involve s greater risks, and is more unpredictable clinically compared with primary endodontic treatment. This book addresses topics such as indications for endodontic retreatment; safe and efficient removal of existing restorations and obturation material; challenges such as fractured instruments, hard pastes, blockages, and negotiation of the canal; treatment of perforations; management of a tooth with a wide-open apex; and assessment of prognosis and success. Well-illustrated with clinical photographs, radiographs, and diagrams, the book will enable practitioners to undertake endodontic retreatment with greater confidence.
