Long-term Stability of Autotransplanted Premolars as a Substitute for Molars in Adults
Autotransplantation is a viable treatment option for tooth replacement when a suitable donor tooth is available. This case report presents 2 cases that describe successful treatment outcome and prognosis after autotransplantation of a mature premolar as a missing molar. The first premolar was extracted for orthodontic purposes and transplanted to the missing first molar site in the mandible. The transplanted tooth was monitored up to 7  years. The transplant was functional and maintained a normal bone level throughout the follow-up period. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Ability of Cone-beam Computed Tomography to  Detect Periapical Lesions That Were Not Detected by Periapical Radiography: A Retrospective Assessment According to Tooth Group
The detection of periapical lesions by periapical radiography (PR) can be hampered by structural noise, the impact of which differs among tooth groups. The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging to detect periapical lesions that could not be detected with PR according to tooth group.

Disinfection Efficacy of Current Regenerative Endodontic Protocols in Simulated Necrotic Immature Permanent Teeth
The lack of mechanical debridement and reduced concentrations suggested for chemical debridement to maintain stem cell viability call into question the disinfection efficacy of current regenerative protocols. Current protocols vary in the concentration and type of antibiotic medicaments used. The aim of this study was to determine if simulated immature teeth infected with Enterococcus faecalis can be completely disinfected by following current standardized regenerative protocols and to evaluate the probable effects of residual bacteria on stem cell toxicity.

Management of Cyst-like Periapical Lesions by Orthograde Decompression and Long-term Calcium Hydroxide/Chlorhexidine Intracanal Dressing: A Case Series
Cyst-like periapical lesions should be treated initially with conservative nonsurgical procedures. In this case series, we describe the clinical and radiographic outcomes of large cyst-like lesions that were treated by orthograde decompression and long-term intracanal use of calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] mixed with 2% chlorhexidine digluconate. Ten cases of cyst-like periapical lesions involving 15 teeth from 10 patients were selected. Maximal radiographic diameters of the lesions ranged from 11 to 28 mm. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

The Starvation Resistance and Biofilm Formation of Enterococcus faecalis in Coexistence with Candida albicans, Streptococcus gordonii, Actinomyces viscosus, or Lactobacillus acidophilus
Enterococcus faecalis is the most frequently detected species in root canal –treated teeth, and it is able to survive under starvation conditions. However, persistent periapical disease is often caused by multispecies. The aim of this study was to explore the survival of E. faecalis in starvation conditions and biofilm formation with the 4 common pathogenic species. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

The Ionic Products from Mineral Trioxide Aggregate –induced Odontogenic Differentiation of Dental Pulp Cells via Activation of the Wnt/β-catenin Signaling Pathway
Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has been successfully used in clinical applications in endodontics. However, little is known about the involvement of Wnt/ β-catenin signaling in human dental pulp cells (hDPC) differentiation with the interaction of MTA in hard tissue regeneration, especially in odontogenesis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore odontogenic/osteogenic gene expression and the protein secretion of hDPCs cultured with consecu tive concentrations of MTA extracts and carefully examine the particular molecular mechanism that occurs during this process.
