The success of Endodontic retreatment is multifactorial and will depend on the degree of root canal morphology alteration. Irreversible iatrogenic errors such as large perforations or canal transportation will decrease drastically the good prognosis of the treatment. In cases where it is possible to regain the original anatomy and shape, clean and fill the entire […]
The Thermafil Obturation technique was first introduced by Dr. W.B. Johnson in an article published in the Journal of Endodontics in 1978 as a simple method for the delivery of thermo-plasticized gutta-percha (GP) to the prepared root canal space. Many studies proved that it was an efficient, easy and reproducible obturation technique with a high […]
Mandibular second molars are known to have a complex root canal anatomy with anastomosis, resulting in some difficulties during root canal treatment, especially for the complete debridement of organic tissues and bacteria during the shaping and cleaning process and the possibility of insuring a good 3-dimensional seal during obturation. The prevalence of such anatomy is […]
Different types pf posts can be placed during restorative procedures; prefabricated ones such as the screw posts, the paraposts or more recently the ceramic post and fiber posts, or the anatomical post commonly called cast post and core. In cases of non surgical retreatment The removal of a post can be challenging depending on the […]

Nevertheless, failure can occur due to the persistence of bacteria following initial treatment or due to inadequate disinfection, shaping and obturation of the root canal system. The possibility of a secondary infection is also not to be excluded, especially when a defective coronary reconstruction leads […]
