ProTaper Universal - Whatever You Thought, Think Again

ProTaper Universal - Whatever You Thought, Think Again
In 1995, the opportunity was present to develop an improved set of NiTi files. The goal was to create a simple set of easy-to-use files that would significantly improve the benchmark for safety and efficiency. In collaboration with the engineers from Maillefer, Drs. Pierre Machtou, John West and I agreed to develop a set of files that would precisely duplicate the Schilder shaping concept.

An Evidence-Based Endodontic Implant Algorithm: Untying the Gordian Knot; Part I

An Evidence-Based Endodontic Implant Algorithm: Untying the Gordian Knot; Part I
Over the years, endodontics has diminished itself by enabling the presumption that it is comprised of a narrowly defined service mix; root canal therapy purportedly begins at the apex and ends at the orifice.

Do All Endodontically Treated Teeth Require a Post?

Do All Endodontically Treated Teeth Require a Post?
Treatment modalities in restorative dentistry should be implemented with a solid rationale behind them and support from scientific studies.These principles, in conjunction with clinical experience, can dictate when and if a post is required when a tooth has undergone root canal treatment. Dentists know each tooth is anatomically different and should be diagnosed and treated with an individual approach when it comes to its restoration. It is tempting to follow a path that leads into a routine in which…

Endodontic-Restorative Symbioses: Diagnosis and Treatment

Endodontic-Restorative Symbioses: Diagnosis and Treatment
The success of endodontic treatment is comprised of proper diagnosis and treatment, which is easier to accomplish when the symptoms correlate to the clinical and radiographic findings. It is generally a more predictable treatment on anterior teeth as opposed to posterior teeth due to the number of canals and their internal configuration. A multidisciplinary approach has never been more essential to provide the patient with the best possible choices for treatment. Moreover, the general dentist and…

Hemisection as an Alternative Treatment for Vertically Fractured Mandibular Molars

Hemisection as an Alternative Treatment for Vertically Fractured Mandibular Molars
Hemisection of mandibular molars may be a viable treatment option when vertical root fracture has occurred and the other root is healthy. This article discusses a case that presents the techniques involved in hemisection and restoration of the remaining tooth.

Dental Endoscopic Viewing System

Dental Endoscopic Viewing System
Endoscopy has enabled medicine to take a quantum leap in disease diagnosis and therapeutic management by allowing visualization and access for repair of injuries via minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques. Since their introduction, fiberoptic bundles and electronic video technology have continually advanced and fostered smaller-bore (viewing tubes) endoscopes of 2 mm and less, further improving access into smaller cavities and anatomical spaces of the body. This viewing technology has reached…

Evolution and Integration of Current Restorative Endodontic Concepts

Evolution and Integration of Current Restorative Endodontic Concepts
The restoration of endodontically treated teeth was advocated by G.V. Black in 1869 followed by a one-unit post and crown by Richmond in 1878. Engineering principles indicate that structural strength on endodontically treated teeth is decreased by the removal of the roof of the pulp chamber, canal enlargement, and hence loss of integrity. The intrinsic strength of dentin can be diminished as a result of root canal treatment originated by decay, pathology, or trauma. When endodontic treatment is indicated,…
