Endodontic Microbiology is a major new work on the microbiology and clinical treatment of endodontic pathosis. Composed of contributions from the leading educators and researchers in the field, this authoritative text offers contemporary evidence and scholarship, bringing the science of endodontic microbiology to clinical practice. Endodontic Microbiology emphasizes the importance of the biological sciences to understanding endodontic disease and its effective management.

The book thoroughly examines the expanding and evolving body of knowledge about endodontic microbiology. The topics covered include persistent and resistant microorganisms, virulence factors, and systemic dissemination of endodontic microorganisms. Written by preeminent experts, Endodontic Microbiology summarizes contemporary thought in the field.
