The atlas opens with a solid introduction to the basic science and general principles of endodontic pathobiology, microbiology, diagnosis, imaging, anatomy, anesthesia, and emergency care. Separate sections then guide the reader through instruments and materials, root canal treatment, instrumentation and filling, and postendodontic measures, plus other key topics such as endodontic surgery, traumatology, and outcomes.
