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 [...]

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 longterm retention of teeth. A study by Galler from University Hospital Regensburg, Germany, focused on preservation or regeneration of dental pulp in immature [...]

Retention of Endodontically Treated Posterior Cracked Teeth

The aim of this retrospective cohort study conducted by Sim et al from the National Dental Centre, Singapore, was to examine the 5-year survival rate of teeth with cracks and to determine which factors influenced the outcome. A total of 200 patients who had root canal-treated posterior cracked teeth were recalled for a 5-year review. The cases were managed following the treatment protocol for cracked [...]

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 [...]
