DDS, MsC (Endodontics)
A complex case can be diagnosed pre-operatively with radiographs and cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) that provide the exact root canal configuration allowing a deep understanding of the canal anatomy as well as other complications from previous treatments. Endodontic specialists usually treat complex cases which needed advanced materials and techniques. Also is expected that a […]
Apical periodontitis is a local inflammatory response which due to the presence of microorganisms within an infected root canal system1. One of the main goals in endodontics is to be able to prevent this infectious disease or, in cases it already happened with consequences in the periapical tissues, create conditions to a good periapical healing2. […]
Iatrogenic perforation can occur during different steps of the endodontic treatment which can be challenging or compromised with this procedural mishap. The purpose of this article is to report and present the nonsurgical approach to manage root perforations, located in the pulp chamber. Root perforation is a mechanical, iatrogenic, or pathologic communication between the […]
Internal root resorption is rare in permanent teeth. The altered canal anatomy resultant from the resorptive process poses a challenge for the chemo-mechanical debridement and sealing of the root canal. The purpose of this article is to report the successful treatment of an upper central incisor with an internal root resorption.
An alternative method, involving the use of an irrigation needle and cyanoacrylate adhesive, allowed the removal of the fractured instrument from inside of the canal system. During the mechanical shaping of the root canal system, the possibility of fracture of an instrument is always present. When it occurs, the first step is dealing with our […]
With increasing reports of aberrant canal morphology, the clinician needs to be aware of the possibility of having a middle mesial canal in mandibular first molars. The purpose of this article is to report the successful treatment of a clinical case of a mandibular molar with three mesial and two distal canals.
