Endodontics is the discipline of dentistry to which the responsibility for teaching the anatomy, morphology, histology, physiology, and pathology of the dental pulp and associated periradicular tissues is often delegated. Beyond an understanding of the basic sciences and their relationship to the dental pulp, the practice of endodontics requires great manual dexterity and the application of knowledge from other dental and medical disciplines. To be successful the endodontist must (1) integrate diagnostic and treatment planning skills; (2) apply knowledge of head and neck anatomy and morphology, pharmacology, microbiology, inflammation and immunology, systemic and oral pathology, pain, radiology, and biomaterials; (3) develop exceptional technical skills and expertise in performing surgical and nonsurgical procedures; and (4) manage a complex array of clinical problems. This must be accomplished in an environment characterized by an unprecedented increase in the knowledge base and an explosion in science and technology.

Unlike the "greatest generation" of World War II, today's patients expect to keep their natural dentition for the duration of their lives. As this dentate population ages, the demand for dental services will increase, as well as the complexity of treatment. This has created pressure on the dental profession to develop methods and materials to restore teeth that until recently would have been extracted.
To meet the needs and demands of the public and to ensure currency, the modern practitioner must be committed to lifelong learning. This process involves the transition from learning in a structured academic environment directed by experienced faculty and a set curriculum to self-instruction and exposure to new and varied philosophies. Direct benefits of lifelong learning include an increased knowledge base; the ability to evaluate new materials, techniques, and devices; and enhanced patient care. Indirect benefits are enthusiasm for the practice of endodontics, a challenge to continually improve, increased expectation of success, and confidence in the knowledge that the treatment being provided is based on sound biologic and scientific principles. Lifelong learning symbolizes an individual's commitment to pursue excellence. It is a professional requirement and an investment in the future.
The purpose of this atlas is to provide the clinician with current information on common clinical treatment techniques in the practice of endodontics. Emphasis is placed on presenting concepts that facilitate the process of applying existing knowledge to the unique clinical problems encountered in daily practice. Using a logical sequential approach, the atlas is designed to be an adj unct to the endodontic literature and serve as an educational resource for the clinician interested in life long learning and the specialty of endodontics
