In retreatments the phase of the disassembling can be difficult and time consuming. When gutta percha is too soft, for example, removing it by means of ultrasonics devices or rotary systems becomes more difficult, that’s why I stopped using solvents many years ago. In general, my approach in non surgical retreatment is to try to […]
Root perforations are characterized by a communication between the root canal system and the external tooth surface. They are caused by a pathological process or an operative procedural accident. When iatrogenic, they can occur during access cavity opening, root canal preparation or during post preparation. Root perforation needs to be diagnosed early and treated appropriately as soon as possible, since they may cause an inflammatory […]
Traumatic lesions of permanent dentition have a percentage of incidence which ranges from 26-76%: the most frequent causes are falls, accidents occurred during sports or as a consequence of violent episodes. Upper incisors are the most frequently affected teeth, even if, when there are traumatic lesions of the chin, as a rebound effect, it is […]
One of the main objective in case of incomplete root formation is to re-establish the blood flow allowing the continuation of the root development. Nowadays, the revascularization technique is an alternative to the traditional apexification using calcium hydroxide for a period of time in order to induce a formation of calcified apical barrier . Infection […]
In case of large foramen the traditional techniques with gutta-percha and cement are less efficient in term of sealing , for this reason the use of different techniques are nowadays the gold standard when we have to face resorbed apexes , zipped apexes or big foramen
A particular clinical case . The second lower molar has been endodontically treated for an invasive caries, but during the therapy the colleague faced some problems in the mesio-buccal canal and for this reason he decided to refer the patient . From the intra-op x-ray, taken during the previous treatment , it’s evident that the […]
Plano: the new organizer for Endo Plano has completely changed my ergonomics during the steps of obturation, increasing also the quality of the job. Before Plano it was really difficult to manage without mistakes the gutta percha points in case of multi rooted teeth. Plano allows placing the cones in the appropriate marked spaces and to […]
Endodontic diagnosis, therapies and follow-up procedures can be the most complex of dental treatments; among these, shaping the root canals has always been considered as the basic and most important procedure. Various instruments and techniques have been developed in the history of endodontics, to deal with the almost infinite anatomical variations of root canals; this […]
The selection of an appropriate flap design could determine the success of an endodontic surgery; therefore it's not possible to use a single flap design for different clinical situations and every flap has advantages and disadvantages: for this reason the pre-surgical planning is one of the most important phase of the treatment. The design of […]
Why guessing what we could see? In comparison with the 2D imaging, 3D technology allows a safer and faster diagnostic process. Analysing the articles related to CBCT technology published in the Literature from 1998 to nowadays, only the 16,3% of papers deals with implantology. More than the 25% of the studies written from 1998 and […]
