Using technology to bring diagnosis and treatment planning to the next level
Innovations in instrumentation, obturation, visualization, and surgical techniques are enabling clinicians to provide better long-term prognoses for their patients’ teeth after endodontic treatment....
A technique to consider in rare cases when conventional surgery is impossible
Endodontic treatment success depends on a combination of appropriate instrumentation, effective irrigation and decontamination of root canal spaces to apices, and obturation of the root canals. Irriga...
Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has been a revolutionary material in endodontics. Since its introduction in the 1990s several studies have demonstrated its use in various clinical applications. MTA h...
Clinicians and thought leaders discuss what they consider to be the great innovations of the past 25 years
Technique and instrumentation considerations to reduce adverse events
The accessory post technique for conservative and effective treatment
How is the use of laser technology expanding in dentistry, and how can clinicians determine the proper instrumentation?
From pulp capping to obturation, materials are now available for a variety of indications
Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has helped, but the next logical step to further improve a presurgical case 3-D assessment is to create a surgical model from the CBCT scan.
Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is a multi-application material used in endodontics. This article reviews a number of MTA-like materials that have been introduced for endodontic applications.
Timeless, state-of-the-art strategies for preventing adverse events
MTA for direct pulp capping is compared with CaOH and root canal therapy
