Management of a Maxillary First Premolar

Successful root canal therapy requires a thorough knowledge of root and root canal morphology, as well as the ability to adequately clean, shape and fill all canals. Additional root canals may be detected by clinical investigation of the floor of the pulp chamber following cavity access preparation and by radiographic examination of the tooth. Approximately 64% to 88% of maxillary first [...]

Relation of Coronary Artery Disease and Periapical Lesions

Apical periodontitis (AP) refers to a polymicrobial root canal infection resulting in the resorption of periapical bone. This canal system infection and the periapical defense reactions commonly reach an equilibrium resulting in an established periapical lesion. The prevalence of  ≥1 periapical lesions has been reported to be present in up to 61% in a population study. The biofilm of [...]

Clinical Procedures For Revitalization

The maintenance of pulp vitality is critical in young patients with incomplete root formation. Prevention of bacterial infection and subsequent degeneration of pulpal tissue in children and adolescents is critical for the long-term retention of teeth. A study by Galler from University Hospital Regensburg, Germany, focused on preservation or regeneration of dental pulp in immature teeth. As root formation progresses, epithelial cells of [...]

Endodontic Outcomes of Untreated Canals

Many prognostic studies have investigated the prevalence of apical periodontitis following endodontic treatments and tried to identify the potential risk factors affecting its outcomes. Factors such as preoperative apical disease, pulpal status, shaping and disinfection of the canal system, working length level, and the quality of obturation and restoration have been correlated to endodontic prognosis. The cause of an unsuccessful outcome following [...]

Options After Unsuccessful Root Canal Treatment

The main objectives of root canal treatment are to provide long-term comfort, function, esthetics and prevention of infection. Results from systematic reviews with meta-analyses, studies of large sample sizes and practice-based research network studies have indicated high and long-term survival rates for teeth initially treated by means of nonsurgical root canal. Initial costs, lifetime costs, cost-effectiveness, cost utility and cost-benefit of root canal treatment all compare well [...]

Intraseptal Anesthesia in Patients with Irreversible Pulpitis

It is well established that achieving profound local, anesthesia with an inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) block for patients presenting with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis has its challenges. Therefore, supplemental injections are essential to providing pain-free endodontic treatment. Webster et al from The Ohio State University conducted a study to determine the anesthetic efficacy of the [...]

Intrusive Luxation Treatment for Permanent Teeth

Intrusive luxation injuries of permanent teeth are quite uncommon, making up 0.5% to 1.9% of all dental traumas. It is considered one of the most severe types of dental injuries, and healing complications such as infection-related, ankylosisa-related, and replacement resorption, pulp necrosis and marginal bone loss are frequent (Figure 1). There has been much debate about the optimal treatment of intruded permanent [...]

Effect of Endodontic lrrigants on Apical Periodontitis

Apical periodontitis has been shown to be a biofilm-related disease, because the root canal infection consists of biofilm. Because root canal systems are anatomically complex, instruments cannot reach all canal surfaces. Thus, infected root canals are routinely treated chemomechanically--that is, by a combination of  instrumentation and the physicochemical action of root canal irrigants. Because infected root canals contain necrotic soft tissue remnants, bacteria-related proteins and [...]

Current Procedures For Regenerative Endodontics

Since the American Dental Association adopted “pulpal regeneration” as a treatment modality in 2011, regenerative endodontics has gained increasing attention to provide a biologically based treatment and promote root maturation in immature necrotic teeth. Kim et al from Columbia University, New York, explored the biological basis and clinical protocols currently used in regenerative endodontic procedures [...]
