This study aimed to evaluate the ability of swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect internal anatomy of maxillary premolars in comparison with dental operating microscope (DOM) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Photomedicine and laser surgery
To determine if a relationship exists between the apical shape of roots and root canal system complexity by performing a micro-computed tomography analysis.
The root and canal anatomy of the mandibular first molar is highly complicated. A mandibular first molar with a C-shaped root canal system is rare. This article describes two different cases of this s...
The essence of pulp and periapical disease is bacterial infection. Thus, satisfactory infection control is the premise and foundation of healing, in which root canal preparation is a critical procedur...
The seal of root canal ﬁllings depends on the anatomy of the root canal system and on the properties of filling materials and their bond to the walls of the root canal. Alterations in pressure may i...
To explore the incidence and analyze the morphology of three-rooted maxillary first premolars (MFPs) incidentally detected on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans.
to date there is no detailed examination of the root and root canal system of maxillary first and second premolars in an Egyptian subpopulation. in this study the investigators do an Obser...
Linear relation between premolars and molars root apex and superior border of inferior alveolar canal
Aim To evaluate in vivo the shaping ability of the canal with 3 different single-file systems: Reciproc Blue, WaveOne Gold and XP Endo-Shaper, using cone beam computed tomography and 3D re...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological outcomes of iRoot SP as a root canal sealer in comparison with AH Plus sealer within 1-year follow up.Patients needi...
The aim of the study was to evaluate the root canal treatments performed from 1989 to 1995. Type of complication, success, new endodontic diseases and number of success were reported. Mean...
The part of a tooth from the neck to the apex, embedded in the alveolar process and covered with cementum. A root may be single or divided into several branches, usually identified by their relative position, e.g., lingual root or buccal root. Single-rooted teeth include mandibular first and second premolars and the maxillary second premolar teeth. The maxillary first premolar has two roots in most cases. Maxillary molars have three roots. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p690)
Preparatory activities in ROOT CANAL THERAPY by partial or complete extirpation of diseased pulp, cleaning and sterilization of the empty canal, enlarging and shaping the canal to receive the sealing material. The cavity may be prepared by mechanical, sonic, chemical, or other means. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1700)
Phase of endodontic treatment in which a root canal system that has been cleaned is filled through use of special materials and techniques in order to prevent reinfection.
Chemicals used mainly to disinfect root canals after pulpectomy and before obturation. The major ones are camphorated monochlorophenol, EDTA, formocresol, hydrogen peroxide, metacresylacetate, and sodium hypochlorite. Root canal irrigants include also rinsing solutions of distilled water, sodium chloride, etc.
A treatment modality in endodontics concerned with the therapy of diseases of the dental pulp. For preparatory procedures, ROOT CANAL PREPARATION is available.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
