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 [...]

Patient Preferences For Treatment of Apical Periodontitis

Apical periodontitis (AP) is a prevalent disease that represents a host response to the infection of the root canal systems of the affected teeth. The tooth with AP can be treated with root canal treatment (RCT) with the intent of retaining the affected tooth, or be extracted. If the infected tooth is extracted, the space [...]

Preoperative Ibuprofen and Inferior Alveolar Nerve Block

Profound anesthesia is the goal when treating patients who present to the dental office with symptoms of irreversible pulpitis. Inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) is the standard injection technique used to achieve regional anesthesia for mandibular molar treatments. Studies have shown that the IANB technique fails in 30% to 90% of these cases. To evaluate [...]

Patient Satisfaction After Nonsurgical Root Canal Treatment

To evaluate patient satisfaction and quality of life after primary root canal treatment—as well as the association between the level of clinicians' training and experience on these parameters—Hamasha and Hatiwsh from Jordan University of Science and Technology studied a random sample of 302 patients undergoing root canal treatment. Patients received treatment from either an undergraduate [...]
