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. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Retrospective Evaluation of Perforation Repairs In Endodontically Treated Teeth

Perforations are unfavorable iatrogenic complications that may occur during endodontic treatment or post-space preparation. Such events have been shown to occur in 2% to 12% of all endodontically treated teeth. The factors that may contribute to coronal perforations include: ■ pulp chamber calcifications ■ unfavorable crown-root angulations ■ excessive removal of coronal dentin ■ oversized [...]
