Summary:

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, one must consider that the resulting anatomy and configuration of the canal(s) can vary according to its original anatomy, canal access, canal enlargement, and chemomechanical preparation. In addition, intrinsic dentin strength may be adversely affected by the absence of a pulp that results in a decrease of moisture content of dentin and consequently becoming more susceptible to fracture than vital teeth.

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…

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…

Prevention and Management of Broken Endodontic Instruments Premium Member Content

Prevention and Management of Broken Endodontic Instruments
he separation of endodontic instruments is a procedural accident that results in major treatment challenges and medico legal considerations in endodontics. With the advent of rotary nickel-titanium (Ni Ti) instrumentation the issue became extremely prominent. Extensive research has been conducted to understand the mechanics of instrument separation. This has led to changes in the manufacturing methods, instrument design and instrumentation protocols. Most recently, reciprocation is challenging rotary instrumentation in terms of speed and safety from fracture. Although the incidence of file breakage can be drastically decreased, it cannot yet be eliminated. No matter what instruments you are using inside the root canal system, the prevention and management of broken endodontic instruments still remains a hot topic.

Prevention and Management of Separated Instruments Premium Member Content

Prevention and Management of Separated Instruments
Broken, separated, or “disarticulated” instruments can occur during the day-to-day practice of endodontics. No dentist should have a particular tolerance for broken instruments; however, it is important to know how to prevent and treat these incidents and how to explain the situation to the patient. Guidelines for prevention and management of intracanal separated instruments including Microsonic and Bypassing techniques have been explained in details here with different technical tips to help the dentist to increase the chance of saving tooth in the event of the breakage.
