This case report demonstrates a positive outcome of the adjuvant use of fragile fracture (FF), which is a technique used to harvest Dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs), and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in a mandibular premolar (tooth 44) with a completely formed root that was transplanted into a surgically created socket and which maintained pulp vitality and function.

The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) Consensus Conference Recommended Diagnostic Terminology states that mature permanent teeth clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis are treated wi...
This systematic review and meta-analysis assessed clinical, radiographic and functional retention outcomes in immature necrotic permanent teeth treated either with pulp revascularization or apexificat...
Revascularization endodontic procedures commonly require multiple treatment sessions. However, single visit procedures may be advantageous from the clinical and patient management standpoints. The pur...
A 14-year-old girl underwent extraction of an ankylosed primary left second molar as requested by her orthodontist. The developing mandibular left second premolar (tooth 20) was unintentionally remove...
Various materials are used for vital pulp capping and the bond strength of restorative materials to these pulp-capping agents significantly affects the success rate of vital pulp therapy.
In cases of permanent tooth avulsion, it is widely accepted that some necrosis always occurs after avulsion injury. If the pulp tissue does not revascularize or if endodontic therapy is no...
Regenerative endodontic procedures have been used to successfully treat human mature permanent teeth with necrotic pulps and apical periodontitis. Many researchers have begun to apply rege...
Management of deep carious lesions in permanent mature molars with reversible pulpitis represents a challenge for clinicians. Vital pulp therapy includes indirect and direct pulp capping, ...
This study compared the efficiency of pulp revascularization and MTA apexification in the treatment of patients with necrotic immature anterior teeth.
Abstract Aim The aim of this randomized clinical trial was to histologically investigate possible effects of dexamethasone application on pulp tissue healing during one step mineral trioxi...
Specific loci that show up during KARYOTYPING as a gap (an uncondensed stretch in closer views) on a CHROMATID arm after culturing cells under specific conditions. These sites are associated with an increase in CHROMOSOME FRAGILITY. They are classified as common or rare, and by the specific culture conditions under which they develop. Fragile site loci are named by the letters "FRA" followed by a designation for the specific chromosome, and a letter which refers to which fragile site of that chromosome (e.g. FRAXA refers to fragile site A on the X chromosome. It is a rare, folic acid-sensitive fragile site associated with FRAGILE X SYNDROME.)
A dental specialty concerned with the maintenance of the dental pulp in a state of health and the treatment of the pulp cavity (pulp chamber and pulp canal).
A RNA-binding protein that is found predominately in the CYTOPLASM. It helps regulate GENETIC TRANSLATION in NEURONS and is absent or under-expressed in FRAGILE X SYNDROME.
Application of a protective agent to an exposed pulp (direct capping) or the remaining thin layer of dentin over a nearly exposed pulp (indirect capping) in order to allow the pulp to recover and maintain its normal vitality and function.
Death of pulp tissue with or without bacterial invasion. When the necrosis is due to ischemia with superimposed bacterial infection, it is referred to as pulp gangrene. When the necrosis is non-bacterial in origin, it is called pulp mummification.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
