From a medico-legal aspect, extrusion of root canal filling might be considered malpractice if there is excessive extrusion of material combined with incomplete obturation of the canal leading to failure of the root canal treatment.(1) Acute Apical Abscess AAA is the most common form of dental infections and is caused by the infected root canal […]
Core build up using adhesive materials has become very popular due to many advantages of this technique. Better aesthetics in the front region and better mechanical force distribution compared to metal posts are some of the advantages. Another enhancement would be the conservative preparation or even no post preparation for root canal treated teeth, where […]
Traumatic dental injuries occur most frequently in children and young adults. Proper diagnosis, treatment planning and follow up are very important to assure a favorable outcome. The purpose of this clinical article is to highlight the advantage of core build up and bonding with ITENA Clinical's Corono-Radicular Restoration Kit in reinforcing tooth structure in view […]
In the following clinical case, a maxillary first premolar was presented with invading decay reaching the pulp chamber. The tooth was diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis needing root canal treatment. The pre-operative X-ray revealed a 3 rooted premolar, a special configuration that can be found in 5% of the cases as cited by Vertucci. Knowing that […]
Failing primary endodontic treatments are retreated to enhance the cleaning and shaping of the entire root canal space. Reshaping usually tends to eliminate more tooth structure from the canal walls. Furthermore endodontically treated teeth are already susceptible to mechanical failure due to de-roofing of the pulp chamber. For all these reason special care should be […]

Patient was exhibiting episodes of pain from time to time that started few days ago. Intra Oral examination showed a sinus tract on the buccal aspect of the gum facing first molar #46.No probing was […]
Is it possible to talk about a conservative approach during shaping? It has been suggested by Clarck and Khademi in 2010 that the prognosis of the tooth after root canal treatment depends on the capacity to preserve peri cervical dentine (PCD) and rebuilt the tooth with as much as possible healthy tooth structure . Since […]
Cracked tooth syndrome (CTS) is where a tooth has incompletely cracked meaning without a part of the tooth breaking off. Most of the time it is an incomplete fracture of a vital posterior tooth that occasionally extends into the pulp. CTS could be considered a type of dental trauma and also one of the possible […]
It is reported that almost 40% of retreatment with chronic apical periodontitis or symptomatic apical periodontitis are due to missed canals. Karabucak & all reported in 2016 an overall incidence of missed canals in treated teeth to be 23.04% and 41 to 46% in maxillary first molars. Teeth with a missed canal were 4.38 times […]
Endodontic perforation is an iatrogenic procedural error defined as a communication between the root canal system and the periodontal attachment apparatus through the root canal walls. This defect may occur on any given tooth at any stage of root canal therapy, from access cavity to post space preparation. Same day Emergency appointment of a 45 year old […]
