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 [...]

Correlation Between Systemic Diseases and Endodontics

In the past, periodontal disease has received considerable interest as a risk factor for systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes mellitus, chronic liver disease and others. Endodontic infections have received less attention, despite the fact that many microbial pathogens are common to periodontal and endodontic disease. By conducting a systematic review of the literature, Khalighinejad et al from [...]

Outcomes of Repaired Root Perforation

Root perforation is a mechani­cal, iatrogenic or pathologic communication between the root canal system and the external tooth surface. An iatrogenic perfora­tion often results from misalignment of burs or engine-driven instruments during endodontic access prepara­tion, canal negotiation or root canal preparation. Some iatrogenic perfora­tions are created during prosthodontic treatment, in particular when pre­paring a [...]

Frequency of Root Resorption Following Trauma

The prevalence of traumatic injuries to the teeth and their supporting structures is significant. Causes include sports injuries, falls and automobile accidents. Most injuries occur in children between the ages of 8 and 15 years; the anterior teeth are affected most frequently. In addition to the teeth, the periodontal tissues, gingiva, alveolar bone and pulp are often adversely affected. Healing depends on the stage [...]

Pulp-Dentin Regeneration: An Overview

Tissue regeneration in the dental pulp entails the resolution of acute and chronic inflammation, pulp necrosis and infection, followed by the restoration of damaged dentoalveolar tissues, including the organized pulp–dentin complex. The rationale for endodontic regeneration is to reinstate normal physiologic function in an otherwise necrotic pulp, including the protective mechanisms—e.g., innate pulp immunity, pulp [...]
