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…

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.

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,…
