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 [...]

Is a Glide Path Necessary for the New Reciprocating NiTi Files?

It has been well established that nickel–titanium (NiTi) alloy files are able to maintain the original canal shape during the instrumentation procedure. However, they do come with one important disadvantage: a higher risk of file separation or breakage compared with stainless steel hand files. If a file breaks inside a canal, it is usually [...]

Management of Horizontal Root Fractures

Horizontal or transverse (intra-alveolar) root fracture is a rare injury in permanent teeth, comprising only 0.5% to 7% of all traumatic injuries. This injury involves the periodontal ligament, cementum, dentin and dental pulp. Depending on the level of the fracture line, the clinician may employ vari-ous treatment modalities to promote healing and tooth survival. [...]

Middle Mesial Canals in Mandibular First Molars

Versiani et al from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, conducted a study to determine the thorough cleaning and shaping procedures, which are necessary for successful endodontic treatment that may be adversely affected by the highly variable root canal anatomy. The presence of additional canals must be recognized to avoid incomplete instrumentation and the [...]
