Long-term Outcomes of Apical Surgery Using MTA

After failure of root canal treatment, apical surgery with retrograde obturation may be a good alternative when conventional orthograde re-treatment cannot be accomplished. Successful surgery requires placing a root-end filling to prevent possible bacterial reinfection. The ideal root-end filling material should be biocompatible, bioactive, stable, insoluble, and have no mutagenicity; it should also [...]

Endodontic Treatment to Resolve Retrograde Peri-implantitis

Peri-implant mucositis, which resembles gingivitis around natural teeth, may progress to peri-implantitis, a pathological inflammatory condition that occurs in the coronal portion of dental implants and leads to progressive loss of supporting bone. Prevalence of these conditions is high, with peri-implantitis occurring in nearly 20% and peri-implant mucositis in nearly half of all [...]

Apical Lesions and Cardiovascular Risk In Young Adults

Chronic apical periodontitis, an inflammation of the apical periodontium, typically results in an osteolytic apical lesion of endodontic origin, most frequently presenting as asymptomatic apical periodontitis. Studies have shown an epidemiological connection between apical lesions of endodontic origin (ALEOs) and cardiovascular diseases, including endothelial dysfunction, atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. While an elevated [...]

Volumetric Healing After Periapical Microsurgery

A combination of tools and techniques introduced in the 1990s—the dental operating microscope, ultrasonic root-end preparation and biocompatible root-end fillings—resulted in a revision of endodontic procedures termed “periapical microsurgery” that raised the success rate of surgical endodontic therapy from 45% to 60% to more than 90%. Although the literature shows that periapical tissue, [...]

Endodontic Irrigant Effect on Biofilm Removal

The goal of endodontic treatment is the eradication of microorganisms located in the root canal system that lead to apical periodontitis. These microbes colonize the intraradicular space as biofilms. While complete elimination is unrealistic, the practitioner needs to aim for the greatest practical reduction of these biofilms, usually via the use of endodontic [...]

Sequelae to Permanent Teeth After Primary Tooth Trauma

A recent study showed that approximately 180 million children worldwide have experienced at least 1 traumatic dental injury in the primary teeth. For nearly 50 years, articles appearing in the dental literature have noted a correlation between these traumatic injuries and sequelae in successor permanent teeth, perhaps due to the closeness between the apices of [...]

Choosing Between Endodontic Treatment and Implant Placement

Patients with diseased dental pulp have traditionally received nonsurgical root canal treatment. However, the development of modern osseointegrated dental implants has changed the calculus for many of these patients, and current trends appear to favor implants as the standard procedure in cases that would have previously undergone endodontic treatment. Although many studies have [...]

Intracanal Calcification Following Regenerative Endodontic Treatment

reatments for immature teeth with pulp necrosis may include calcium hydroxide apexification, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) apical barrier technique or regenerative endodontic treatment. While the advantage of regenerative treatment includes potential for future root maturation with increased canal wall thickness, root length and apical closure, a recent study with an average follow-up of 25 [...]

Successful Endodontic Treatment in Cracked Teeth

The American Association of Endodontists classifies tooth cracks or fractures into 5 subgroups: craze lines, fractured cusps, cracked tooth, split tooth and vertical root fracture. Cracked teeth were defined as “greenstick” fractures with a history of cold sensitivity and acute pain upon chewing. The proper treatment of cracked teeth requires a determination of tooth [...]
