Written by a group of renowned experts three decades after the publication of the last comprehensive book on this topic, this much-needed book has a wealth of evidence-based information on all facets of the restoration of endodontically treated teeth. With the well-documented success of osseointegrated implant-supported fixed restorations, combined with a better understanding of the factors that can influence the prognosis of severely compromised teeth, the profession’s approach to treating these teeth has evolved, and this text offers a well-balanced, contemporary approach to treatment planning. Traditional principles and techniques are reviewed and reinforced, along with modern materials and methods, all with a firm foundation in the best available scientific evidence and with an emphasis on clinical studies. Many of the chapters provide comprehensive, step-by-step descriptions of technical procedures with accompanying illustrations to guide the reader through all aspects of restoring pulpless teeth, including fabrication of various foundation restorations, cementation techniques, and methods of provisionalization. Preprosthetic adjunctive procedures, such as surgical crown lengthening, repair of perforations, and orthodontic measures, are also described and illustrated. For years to come, this text will remain a definitive reference not only for dentists involved in the restoration of pulpless teeth, such as general practitioners and prosthodontists, but also for dentists who do not place restorations but are engaged in planning treatment for structurally compromised teeth, such as endodontists, periodontists, and oral surgeons.
