CONCLUSIONS: Spanish- and English-language electronic health information about endodontic treatment is acceptable to read, but-particularly for English-language sites-there is an important proportion of sites scoring difficulty levels well above the recommendations. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The internet is a useful tool for communicating with patients, but available endodontic information is difficult for laypeople to understand. Endodontists should produce relevant materials in plain language to overcome this problem. PMID: 30219207 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
