|Abstract:||Throughout the centuries man has shown a desire to preserve his dentition. Despite on the one hand the influences of tribal rituals upon early tooth loos in primitive man and on the other effects of the dental caries and more recently the increase in traumatic injuries in civilized communities, the trend towards preservation continues. Teeth which were once doomed because of excessive loss of coronal tooth substance may now be restored due to advances in both materials technology and operative dentistry techniques particularly throughout the last two decades. Likewise those with endodontic involvement may in the majority of cases now be restored to biological compatibility with the supporting tissues. This has been achieved due to the scientific and technological advances which have taken place in the science of endontology in a like period. The role played by the endontist in conservative dental therapy has increased markedly in recent years. The majority of large population centres in the western world contain practitioners who have attained specialist skills in the science and who thus provide a specialist service to their colleagues. Throughout the same period, the interest shown by the dental profession at large is demonstrated by the growth of societies and study clubs devoted to the exclusive study of endontology. Parallel with this, dental schools throughout the world have included the study of endontics within their curriculae both at the undergraduate and at the graduate level and learned societies and dental associations continue to make provision for courses of lectures in endontics at dental meetings and congresses …|
