How is the use of laser technology expanding in dentistry, and how can clinicians determine the proper instrumentation?
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.
This article reviews how fiber posts differ from their metal predecessors and how they vary intrinsically from one design and composition to another.
This article discusses the prevention of separated endodontic rotary NiTi files, how to remove of a broken file, and the prognosis for when the file cannot be removed.
An overview of commercially available MTA materials, which possess many of the characteristics of an ideal endodontic material, is provided.
This article reviews the composition, properties, products, and clinical aspects of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) materials.
This study evaluated and compared the mechanical properties of five commercial core materials using fracture toughness, Knoop hardness number, diametral tensile strength, and dynamic elastic moduli.
This case describes a maxillary lateral incisor with dens invaginatus Type 3 that was refractory to treatment and demonstrates the importance of considering this condition in all maxillary lateral inc...
Mineral trioxide aggregate has been effective in artificial root-end closure. In this case report, an internal matrix using absorbable collagen sponge provided a base for MTA placement at the apex.
This case of occlusal dysfunction depicts a comprehensive restorative plan that included disease control treatment, root canal therapy, and orthodontics. A Kois deprogrammer was used to evaluate the p...
