Francesca Cerutti has been a speaker in national and international congresses regarding post-endodontic restoration and aesthetic reconstruction of teeth.
She won the prize for the best research in the I Expo D’Autunno (Milan, 2007) and won the VI Premio De Fazio (Rome, 2008)”.
Member of the Italian Society of Endodonticd, she has been Editorial coordinator of the Italian Endodontic Journal from 2008 to 2011. She is silver Member of Style Italiano Endodontics.
Reviewer for international papers such as Journal of Adhesive Dentistry, European Journal of Paediatric Dentistry and Biomaterials, she published several articles in peer-reviewed papers.
She is co-author of restorative dentistry and endodontics books.
She collaborates with Prof. Dino Re at the University of Milan, where she practices clinical research and, since 2018, she is visiting professor.
Aim of endodontic therapy is to maintain or restore the periapical health of teeth through shaping, cleaning and filling tridimensionally the root canal system. Root canal treatment has proven to be a predictable procedure with a high success rate. Nevertheless, failures occur in 14-16% of primary endodontic treatments and retreatments account for approximately 30% of […]
The first step to reach the success of root canal therapy is o have a good knowledge of the root and root canal morphology. This helps us to locate all the canals and properly clean, shape, and obturate the canal spaces in all dimensions. Slowey has suggested that mandibular first premolars, often called as “Endodontist's […]
Having an optimal view of the operative field is one of the most obvious, but at the same times most important, aspects to keep into consideration while doing an endodontic treatment. The use of rubber dam and magnifications certainly give us an advantage, together with a correct access cavity, but often, when the clinical situation […]
The successful outcome of root canal treatment in teeth with non-infected vital pulps depends on preventing root canal infection, while in teeth with infected necrotic pulps it relies on eradication or at least reduction of bacterial counts to levels compatible with peri-radicular tissue healing. To do so, the first thing to do is to carefully […]
Shaping the root canal system using only mechanical files can be done in the majority of cases. When using this approach it is important to follow a precise strategy and to choose the right instruments, avoiding iatrogenic damages and file breakage. A careful pre operative analysis of the X-ray allows the clinician to understand the […]
Sometimes endodontics is the first answer to the needs of our patients, in particular when they come to our practice because they feel pain. Apart from freeing the patient from pain, the aim of endodontic treatment is to shape the root canal system, put in action an efficient disinfection protocols and to hermetically obturate the canal […]
Success of endodontic treatment depends upon thorough mechanical and chemical disinfection of the entire root canal system. When the endodontic treatment is of poor quality, apical periodontitis might occur. Numerous studies have investigated the prevalence of apical periodontitis in root filled teeth and its potential risk factors: beyond the substandard quality of the treatment, one of […]
Endodontic success often depends on canal debridement, disinfection, and canal obturation. Access to the canal is one key to debridement, in fact an appropriately designed access cavity assures unobstructed straight-line access to the apical third of the root canal. The endodontic treatment of maxillary incisors, especially the lateral incisors, was reported as the last successful […]
The stamp technique is a well known way to reproduce accurately the occlusal anatomy of the tooth. It allows to restore quickly and in a predictable way even class II cavities and anterior teeth (as shown in this article by Giuseppe Marchetti https://www.styleitaliano.org/fast-single-shade-anterior-restorations-flowable-composite-the-stamp-technique). In the following case report I adapted the stamp technique to the […]
When removing large amalgam restorations we frequently observe that modifications have occurred in the pulp chamber, that often presents a diminished size, with a more difficult finding of the root canal openings. The use of ultrasonic tips, together with the knowledge of the anatomy, can help in finding the orifices without making iatrogenic damages.
MTA has a broad field of use in endodontics thanks to its biocompatibility and its capability to harden in a moist environment. Several articles proved it to be effective as a pulp capping material, although most of the literature focuses on the pulp capping in young patients...but what happens when if do this in an […]
Patient’s anxiety is a relevant problem in dental practice, above all when it is related to the fear of pain. Several patients consider anesthesia as the most traumatic experience in dental procedures, mainly referring to previous dental treatments. In order to provide an efficient analgesic effect reducing the fear and the pain related to the […]
