An automated measurement method for the endodontic working width of lower molars by means of parametric models using cone-beam CT and micro-CT
ConclusionsThe three-dimensional imaging data from CBCT and μCT enabled a valuable anatomical assessment of root canal’s cross-sectional ‘working width’ along the canal up to the physiological foramen in order to determine an adequate apical diameter as well as the correct measured taper in the cervical and medial part.

Micro-CT evaluation of maxillary first molars: interorifice distances and internal anatomy of the mesiobuccal root
This study aimed to describe the morphometric relationship of root canal orifices on the pulp floor in the presence/absence of mesiobuccal second canal (MB2) in the maxillary first molars and other aspects of its internal anatomy. Sixty-two maxillary first molars were scanned by micro-CT. The presence of the MB2 canal was verified. The distance between the center points of the MB1, MB2, distobuccal (DB), and palatal (P) canal orifices on the pulp floor were measured (MB1-MB2, MB1-DB, MB2-DB, MB1-P, and DB-P). The MB1-P to DB-P ratio was calculated. The distances between the anatomic apex and the MB1 and MB2 apical foramina...

Influence of different endodontic sealers on bond strength of fiber posts to weakened roots after resin restoration
ConclusionsAH Plus and Acroseal sealer groups presented similar results, and the Endofill sealer negatively affected the BS of fiber post to restored root dentin.Clinical relevanceWeakened dentin walls are often found in teeth undergoing endodontic treatment, so the sealer used must allow or at least not interfere the bonding between restorative materials and root dentin.

Impact of irrigation solutions on the apical sealing potential of different endodontic sealers used with the continuous-wave obturation technique: An In vitro study
Conclusions: The type of irrigating solution could affect the apical sealing ability of experimental sealers used with the continuous-wave obturation technique. Root canal irrigation with 3% H2O2+17% EDTA increased the apical sealing ability of all root canal sealers. Root canal irrigation with 3% NaOCl or 2% CHX +17% EDTA decreased the apical sealing ability of all root canal sealers.

To Drill or Not to Drill: Management of Endodontic Emergencies and In-Process Patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Conclusions: Palliative care for management of endodontic emergencies is a successful option when aerosol-generating procedures are restricted. This treatment approach maybe be considered in an effort to reduce risk of transmission of COVID-19 infection during subsequent shutdowns. Prolonged Ca(OH)2 medicament due to COVID-19 related delays in treatment completion appeared to have minimal effect on survival of teeth.

How Are Dental Abscesses Treated?
Discussion Dental caries are one of the most common infections. It is usually caused by Streptococcus viridans. Dental caries are also quite preventable with brushing the teeth at least twice a day with a fluoridated dentifrice, use of dental floss, and preventative dental appointments with application of fluoride varnish and sealants as appropriate. Additionally, fluoridation of the community water supply has significantly decreased dental caries and is a very effective public health measure. Fluoride binds within the dental matrix to strength it. Dental abscesses are usually caused by poor oral hygiene but others are at...

Africa: Disabilities Should Not Exclude People from Receiving Dental Care
[allAfrica] In 2015, I had a client with Down Syndrome while working as a dentist in Ekiti State, southwest Nigeria. He came for a root canal treatment. As a competent dentist, I had a hard time treating the patient, because the dental facility did not have some of the equipment needed to treat People with Disabilities (PWDs).   Also, I did not know how go about communicating with PWDs about their dental care needs.

Every 15 Minutes, Someone In The US Dies Of A Drug-Resistant Superbug
(CNN) — Every 15 minutes, someone in the United States dies of a superbug that has learned to outsmart even our most sophisticated antibiotics, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s about 35,000 deaths each year from drug-resistant infections, according to the landmark report. The report places five drug-resistant superbugs on the CDC’s “urgent threat” list — two more germs than were on the CDC’s list in 2013, the last time the agency issued a report on antibiotic resistance. Genetic research shows germs have become especially adep...

The fresh approach by researchers that was just awarded a Royal Society of Chemistry prize works to stimulate native stem cells inside teeth, triggering repair and regeneration of pulp tissue.

Nanodiamonds might prevent tooth loss after root canals
Nanodiamonds may help patients that have had the dreaded root canal. Dental researchers have developed a nanodiamond-reinforced version of gutta percha, the compound that is used to fill void spaces in dental root canals to prevent infection that can lead to tooth loss. Tested in patient-extracted teeth, the nanodiamond-embedded polymer was substantially stronger than conventional gutta percha. In addition, the scientists tested gutta percha with nanodiamonds that had been loaded with antibiotics and found that the compound effectively prevented bacterial infection.
