Periapical surgery of 29 teeth. A comparison of conventional technique, microsaw and ultrasound. (1/26)

OBJECTIVES: A clinical and radiological study is made of the results obtained with different periapical surgical techniques. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-nine single-root teeth from 29 patients with periapical pathology following correct endodontic treatment were divided into three groups: (A) 10 patients in which rotary instruments were used to perform osteotomy, apicoectomy and cavity preparation; (B) 10 patients in which rotary instruments were used to perform osteotomy and apical resection, with ultrasound root-end cavity preparation; and (C) 9 patients in which microsaws were used for osteotomy, and ultrasound for cavity preparation. All teeth were filled with IRM. Clinical and radiological controls were made after 10 days, one and 6 months, and one year. RESULTS: Clinical success with the absence of symptoms was achieved in 17 cases (58.6%), while in 16 patients (55.2%) the X-ray images showed complete bony regeneration (complete healing). The clinical success rate after one year was 40%, 70% and 66.7% in groups A, B and C, respectively, while complete radiographic healing was recorded in 30%, 60% and 77.8%. There were three failures in group A, two in group C, and none in group B. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, the best results were obtained when ultrasound was used for root-end cavity preparation.  (+info)

SEM observations of resected root canal ends following apicoectomy. (2/26)

The purpose of this study was to examine the apical foramen of root apices extracted during apicotomies. A total of 25 teeth extracted from 25 patients admitted to the Department of Conservative Dentistry at Tokyo Dental College's Chiba Hospital were used for the study. All patients were between 22 to 56 years of age at the time of the study, and each of the 25 cases was determined clinically on radiographs to be chronic apical suppurative periodontitis. Microsurgery was performed on all cases, and the extracted root apices were then observed using SEM. The results demonstrated a wide opening, greater than 350 microns as measured along the major axis, of the apical foramen in 80% of the cases. Various characteristics indicative of resorption were observed around the apical foramen. These features included those believed to have been caused by overinstrumentation during root canal treatment as well as irregularly shaped areas presumed to be apical lesions that had enlarged and eroded. We observed a high frequency of manifestations of cementum resorption surrounding the root apices of teeth with apical lesions. Furthermore, we concluded that in the majority of cases in the present study, due to the fact that the apical foramen exceeded normal opening dimensions as a result of overinstrumentation during root canal treatment or resorption around the root apex, prolongation of the lesions had occurred in response to direct contact of microbial infectious matter and tissues surrounding the root apex over a large area. The above finding suggested that, in cases in which the apical foramen is destroyed through overinstrumentation larger than #35 or in which the apical foramen opens up to dimensions greater than 350 microns due to pathologic resorption, surgical intervention may be indicated. On the other hand, in 64% of the cases, an accessory canal was observed in the root apical lesion. Based on this observation, the presence of an accessory canal in the root apex may contribute to some degree to the prolongation of the lesion.  (+info)

A comparison of retreatment decisions among general dental practitioners and endodontists. (3/26)

This study compared the difference in decision making regarding retreatment of endodontically treated teeth by general dental practitioners and endodontists. Thirty radiographs of endodontically treated teeth taken from undergraduate records with their respective case descriptions were submitted to fifteen endodontists and fifteen general dental practitioners. Seven treatment alternatives were given as choices; reasons for retreatment, if chosen, were also requested and presented as choices. The results showed statistically different decisions among these two groups regarding retreatment cases. More endodontists opted for retreatment of cases, while higher percentages of general dentists decided to observe, not treat or extract. To prevent misdiagnosis and eventually mistreatment, endodontic decision making should be taught. Currently, there are no specific guidelines for management of failed root canal retreatment. It is suggested that guidelines generated by evidence-based dentistry may produce less variation in clinical decision making.  (+info)

Periapical surgery using the ultrasound technique and silver amalgam retrograde filling. A study of 71 teeth with 100 canals. (4/26)

INTRODUCTION: Periapical surgery using ultrasound allows the treatment of root canals of difficult access, with the sacrifice of little root tissue. As a result, periapical disorders which were condemned to treatment failure in the past can now be dealt with successfully. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 71 teeth presenting 100 root canals treated with ultrasound and subjected to retrograde filling with silver amalgam, the course and short-term success of management was evaluated in relation to lesion size, the magnitude of apical resection, and the size of the retrograde filling cavity. The duration of follow-up was one year, with post-treatment controls after 6 and 12 months. RESULTS: After 6 months, the percentage clinical and radiological success was 92% and 58%, respectively. One year after periapical surgery the corresponding percentages were 95% and 80%. Global success after 6 months was 63%, versus 84.2% after 12 months. No statistically significant relation was observed between treatment success and the size of the periapical lesion, the amount of apex resected, or the size of retrograde filling. CONCLUSION: Periapical surgery using ultrasound and retrograde filling with silver amalgam affords a high success rate after 12 months.  (+info)

In vitro evaluation of apical sealing in root apex treated with demineralization agents and retrofiled with mineral trioxide aggregate through marginal dye leakage. (5/26)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the apical seal in root apex treated with different demineralization agents and retrofilled with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) using marginal dye leakage. Fifty-six, human single-rooted teeth were instrumented, filled, resected and had retrofilling cavities prepared with ultrasonic tips. Demineralizing agents were applied before the apical cavities were retrofilled with Pro Root MTA. The specimens were assigned to 4 groups (n=14), as follows: group 1 (no demineralizing agent); group 2 (35% phosphoric acid, for 15 s); group 3 (17% EDTA solution, pH 7, for 3 min); and group 4 (24% EDTA gel, pH 7, for 4 min). The extension of dye (2% rhodamine B, at 37 degrees C, for 24 h) penetration was measured in millimeters using a stereomicroscope. Results were statistically analyzed by ANOVA and Tukey's test at 5% significance level. Among the experimental groups, the least extension of dye penetration was observed in group 1 (1.89 mm), followed by groups 2 (2.18 mm), 4 (2.54 mm) and 3 (2.64 mm). No statistically significant differences (p<0.05) were found in marginal microleakage among groups 1, 2 and 4 and groups 2, 3 and 4. Based on the results obtained in this study, it may be concluded that the application of demineralizing agents cannot be recommended when MTA is used in periradicular surgeries.  (+info)

Combined endodontic therapy and surgery in the treatment of dens invaginatus Type 3: case report. (6/26)

An accurate understanding of the morphology of the root canal system is a prerequisite for successful root canal treatment. Invaginated teeth have a complex root canal configuration that cannot be instrumented effectively and should be treated by both endodontic therapy and surgery. A case of dens invaginatus Type 3 in a maxillary lateral incisor with a periapical lesion and its successful treatment by these combined methods is reported.  (+info)

Sealer penetration and marginal permeability after apicoectomy varying retrocavity preparation and retrofilling material. (7/26)

Apicoectomy failure is generally related to inappropriate marginal sealing of the retrocavity, which allows percolation of microorganisms and their products from root canal system to periapex. This study evaluated tubular penetration of canal sealers and marginal permeability after retrocavity irradiation with Er;Cr:YSGG laser and retrofilling with MTA or cyanoacrylate. Twenty-two single-rooted teeth were decoronated and endodontically treated, their apical 3 mm were resected and the root ends were retroprepared with a low-speed bur. Twenty roots were randomly assigned to 4 groups (n=5): GI and GII--retrofilling with MTA and cyanoacrylate, respectively; GIII and GIV--retrocavity irradiation with Er;Cr:YSGG laser (2.78 microm, 4 W, 20 Hz, 70.8 J/cm(2)) and retrofilling with MTA and cyanoacrylate, respectively. The remaining 2 roots served as positive and negative controls. The analysis of rhodamine B dye infiltration (p=0.05) demonstrated that laser irradiation and MTA retrofilling presented significantly higher permeability rates (p<0.05). Retrofilling with cyanoacrylate showed significantly lower permeability, either when laser was used or not on retrocavity. SEM analysis depicted more cyanoacrylate penetration through dentinal tubules when compared to MTA, suggesting a more efficient marginal sealing. Based on these results, it may be concluded that cyanoacrylate provided a less permeable retrofilling regardless of the retropreparation method, suggesting a more favorable condition to the establishment of the periapical healing.  (+info)

Apical surgery with calcium hydroxide capping of the exposed dentine: a case report. (8/26)

Among a variety of biomaterials that have been reported to be ideal for dental repair, calcium hydroxide has been shown to have excellent long-term biocompatibility in the pulp and periapical areas. Here we report an alternative method employing calcium hydroxide for periapical surgery in a patient who developed internal apical resorption after traumatic injury, which negatively affected the quality of the cleaning, shaping and filling of the root canal. Obturation of the root canal as far as the middle third was followed by apicoectomy and ultrasonic retropreparation, and then retrograde root filling with resin cement sealer (Sealer 26) and zinc oxide powder. Calcium hydroxide paste was applied over the exposed dentinal surface, forming a barrier over the root apex. Radiographic follow-up after 24 months showed absence of apical resorption and complete periapical bone repair associated with a continuous apical lamina dura.  (+info)

The teeth are held firmly in place by strong roots that extend into the jawbone. Molars and premolars tend to have several roots, whereas the front incisors only have a single root. The end or tip of each root is termed the apex. The apex is where the nerves and blood vessels enter the tooth and aids in the delivery of blood to the crown (the part of the tooth you can see in your mouth). A root canal treatment refers to the cleaning of the canals and the removal of infected and inflamed tissue within the root. When the inflammation or infection persists after the root canal treatment, an apicoectomy may be required. An apicoectomy is essentially the removal of the apex (or root tip), followed by a filling procedure to seal the root from further infection. When left untreated, infected roots can damage other teeth, spread infection, and cause regression of the jawbone.. Reasons for an apicoectomy.

Hi Jenny. I had an apicoectomy mid April. All felt well and my gum healed. 3 weeks after, my tooth started to feel heavy and it has a slight burning feeling which comes and goes, but I feel it most days at the moment. It seems to irritate the root canal next to it when this starts. My dentist couldnt find anything wrong with the root canal, and feels that apicoectomy takes a long time to settle. I am getting anxious about the whole thing, is it normal to have this feeling in the tooth and this activity to the other teeth? Please help.

A root end surgery, also known as apicoectomy (apico- + -ectomy), root resection, retrograde root canal treatment (c.f. orthograde root canal treatment) or root-end filling, is an endodontic surgical procedure whereby a tooths root tip is removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material. Microsurgical endodontics - dental surgery using a microscope - may be performed. This is usually necessitated when a conventional root canal therapy had failed and a re-treatment was already unsuccessful or is not advised. State-of-the-art procedures make use of microsurgical techniques, such as a dental operating microscope, micro instruments, ultrasonic preparation tips and calcium-silicate based filling materials. Removal of the root tip is indicated to remove the entire apical delta ensuring no uncleaned missed anatomy. Extraction may be the only alternative. Where necessary prosthetic replacement with a denture, dental bridge or dental implant may be considered. The ...

Root canal surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia such as a numbing shot, so you wont feel any pain. To begin the procedure, a small incision is made in the gum, and the infection at the end of the tooths roots is exposed. The infected tissue is then removed, along with a few millimeters of the root tip itself. A dye may be used to help make cracks or fractures easy to see; if we discover that the tooth is fractured, it may be better to extract (remove) it at this time instead of completing the apicoectomy.. Next, a microscope and light are used to examine the tiny canals. They will be cleaned with an ultrasonic instrument, then filled with an inert material and sealed up with a small filling. To finish the procedure, a small bone graft may be placed at the affected site, and then the gum tissue covering the tooths root will be sutured (sewn) closed. X-rays may also be taken as the procedure nears completion. Afterwards, instructions on postoperative care will be given, and ...

An apicoectomy is done on a microscopic scale, and thus requires an experienced oral surgeon with advanced training. The purpose of the surgery is to remove the tip, or apex, of the root and seal off the canal. This makes it impossible for the infection to travel back through the canal again. The surgery is initiated when the previous root canal has failed, resulting in re-infection, or when your dentist doesnt want to weaken the crown of your tooth with a secondary root canal. Apicoectomies can also be performed to diagnose persistent tooth issues with unknown causes. By examining the entire root of the tooth, your dentist can identify the problem. If you have other damage to the surface of the root or bone surrounding the tooth, your dentist may want to perform the surgery. ...

The diagram illustrates this simple procedure. An incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the bone and surrounding inflamed tissue. The damaged tissue is removed along with the end of the root tip. A root-end filling is placed to prevent re-infection of the root and the gum is sutured. The bone naturally heals around the root over a period of months restoring full function. Following the procedure, there may be some discomfort or slight swelling while the incision heals. This is normal for any surgical procedure. To alleviate any discomfort, an appropriate pain medication will be recommended.. ...
You will receive instructions from your endodontist about which medications to take and what you can eat or drink. You should ice the area for 10 to 12 hours after the surgery, and rest during that time.. The area may bruise and swell. It may be more swollen the second day after the procedure than the first day. Any pain usually can be controlled with over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofem (Advil, Motrin and others) or prescription medication.. To allow for healing, you should avoid brushing the area, rinsing vigorously, smoking or eating crunchy or hard foods. Do not lift your lip to examine the area, because this can disrupt blood-clot formation and loosen the sutures.. You may have some numbness in the area for days or weeks from the trauma of the surgery. This does not mean that nerves have been damaged. Tell your dentist about any numbness you experience.. Your stitches will be removed 2 to 7 days after the procedure, and all soreness and swelling ...

WHEN YOU GET HOME: Take pain medication as directed. Place an ice bag (bags of frozen peas work very well) to your cheek or jaw for 15 minutes on, 15 minutes off, for 12 hours. Lie down with your head elevated with several pillows. Try to rest and not to move around to much.. FIRST 2 OR 3 DAYS: Suck on ice chips or crushed ice. This helps reduce swelling. Swelling will reach maximum in 48 hours after surgery. Swelling will begin to decrease after the third day. Rest as much as possible. DO NOT PULL LIP BACK TO LOOK AT SURGICAL SITE. Try to talk and smile as little as possible since these actions may tear sutures or delicate oral tissues.. PERSISTENT OOZING: A little bleeding or oozing is normal. A little oozing mixed with normal saliva may appear as extensive bleeding. If in doubt or worried, place a moistened tea bag over the surgical wound and apply pressure for 20 minutes. Lie down with your head elevated on three pillows. If bleeding continues call us at (905) 454-9900.. DIET: A ...

nction. It is noteworthy that the Shapers, or any such orifice opener will only create a tapered funnel down to the level of the most coronal aspect of the separation and will not usually allow visualization of the file head. Usually, some removal of dentin circumferentially with an ultrasonic tip is required to fully visualize the file head.. File separations in the apical third of roots are more challenging. In the most general terms, if the file separation lies beyond the point of greatest root curvature, its removal is doubtful, as, access to achieve removal is vital to visualize the file above the point of greatest curvature. Through minimal dentin removal over the most coronal aspect of such a file, if a portion of the head can be exposed, chances for removal increase.. Ultrasonic tips of all types when placed onto the separated rotary NiTi file directly often lead to breakage of the exposed portion of the file leaving a more apical fragment in place which is most often much harder to ...

Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequencies of nonsurgical retreatment, root -end surgery, extraction, and further restoration of root -filled teeth in Sweden in 2009 during a follow-up period of 5 years and to compare the outcomes in teeth restored with direct or indirect restorations. Methods: Data from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency were analyzed, and the frequencies of nonsurgical retreatment, root end surgery, extractions, and further restoration were calculated for all teeth registered as root filled during 2009. Chi-square tests were applied to detect any significant differences in the frequency of further treatment in teeth registered as restored with either a direct or an indirect restoration within 6 months of root filling. Results: Of the 248,299 teeth reported root filled in Sweden in 2009, nonsurgical retreatment was registered in 2.2%, root -end surgery in 1.0%, and extractions in 9.2% during the follow-up period. Of the teeth restored with a direct ...

The weeks kept slipping by and I had been putting off a dental procedure that I really needed to have done. I had a failed root canal that had been giving me fits for awhile. I had lost confidence in my regular dentist and was trying to find a new one. After visiting a dentist that was rated REALLY high on Angies List, and having a dismal experience, I was beside myself with what to do. Sought advise from my periodontist, the one who had done my implants a number of years ago. He gave me a few recommendations, but in the meantime referred me to an endodontist to see what could be done about the tooth that was problematic. That experience was a nightmare...very creepy fellow to begin with, with a lot of weird things happening during the exam, and him telling me when I asked for an explanation of the procedure called apicoectomy... to "google it". So after two really horrid dental experiences, I was beginning to question my sanity, and thinking perhaps I just needed to lower my expectations...and ...

Root canal therapy is a treatment used by many dentists to effectively eradicate the bacteria and infected matter associated with a complete infection of the inside of one or more of your teeth. However, these treatments do not always go as expected. If you have received root canal therapy from a general dentist, this is often the cause of a procedure which has not been properly planned. At your trusted Bergen Beach oral surgeon we begin our apicoectomy in the same manner of which we begin our root canal therapies, through the use of digital x-rays which can capture highly detailed images that are far more effective and much safer than traditional x-ray technology. In doing so our doctors work to capture images of the infected area that can give us a perfect image of the exact scope of your oral infection, which insures that we eradicate every last trace of bacteria.. Also known as a root end surgery, and apicoectomy succeeds where root canal therapy fails. Regardless of the reason for your ...

... is usually performed under local anesthesia such as a numbing shot, so you wont feel any pain. To begin the procedure, a small incision is made in the gum, and the infection at the end of the tooths roots is exposed. The infected tissue is then removed, along with a few millimeters of the root tip itself. A dye may be used to help make cracks or fractures easy to see; if we discover that the tooth is fractured, it may be better to extract (remove) it at this time instead of completing the apicoectomy.. Next, a microscope and light are used to examine the tiny canals. They will be cleaned with an ultrasonic instrument, then filled with an inert material and sealed up with a small filling. To finish the procedure, a small bone graft may be placed at the affected site, and then the gum tissue covering the tooths root will be sutured (sewn) closed. X-rays may also be taken as the procedure nears completion. Afterwards, instructions on postoperative care will be given, and ...
I accidentally hit my front tooth with an electric hair brush styler and I felt nerve pain. The next day, I began to feel constant discomfort. The tooth is quite sensitive to hot and cold and extremely sensitive to pressure. The dentist did a cold test and the tooth responded to it. The x-ray result does not show anything wrong. My gums looked fine as well. He said, my front teeth could have been traumatized and the nerve has become irritated. He said well give it a week and see if the nerve will calm down. If I would still be in pain after a week, he will perform a root canal. I am very much hesitant with the root canal because Ive had two failed root canals and an apicoectomy before but I still lost the tooth. Is there anything I can do to help the nerve settle down? I would be most grateful for any advice you can give me ...
Q: I have had a tooth retreated twice for a root canal and it still hurts to bite down. It has been over 8 months. Can you treat it again? Does insurance usually cover a procedure like this? A: Thank you for your question. If you are having trouble with a tooth that has been retreated with a root canal twice, then you have several options. The tooth may need a minor oral surgery procedure which cleans out any remaining infection from around the root tip of the tooth (apicoectomy), or it may be time to start considering removal of the problematic tooth and future replacement with a dental implant. Either procedure will require joint communication between your general dentist and oral surgeon. As far as insurance coverage goes, each persons specific policy can vary with regards to what procedures are covered. This information is usually found out during your initial consultation visit. Q: What types of anesthesia are used for surgery? A: The type of anesthesia I use for surgery depends

Dear flow cytometry people, A problem with the viability of sorted cells was detected in our lab. We have been asked to sort a fibroblast cell line, IOT 1/2. Cells have been transfected using fugene, and GFP expressing cells (about 15%)and non-expressing cells were sorted into 15-ml falcon tubes filled with medium (5 ml) and maintained in ice. Cells before sorting had a clear FS/SS pattern, and viability using PI was about 95-98%. The instrument used was a MoFlo; laser is a Coherent Enterprise operated at 150 mW at 488nm. In the first attempts, a 90-micron tip at 20 PSI was used. A commercial PBS from DakoCytomation was used as sheath fluid. The problem was detected with sorted cells: both positive and negative tubes showed few cells with a low FS signal when reanalysed, and viability using PI was lower than 15-20%. Then we changed to a 200-micron tip at 5 PSI, but number and viability of sorted cells remained very low. Non-transfected cells showed the same behaviour when sorted. I wonder if it ...

Its possible that a nonsurgical root canal procedure wont be enough to save your tooth and that your endodontist will recommend surgery. Endodontic surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals previously undetected on X-rays during the initial treatment. Surgery may also be needed to remove calcium deposits in root canals, or to treat damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone of the tooth.. Theres no need to worry about surgery if your endodontist prescribes this additional measure. Advanced technologies like digital imaging and operating microscopes allow these procedures to be performed quickly, comfortably and successfully.. There are many surgical procedures that can be performed to save a tooth. The most common are called an apicoectomy, or root-end resection, which may be needed when inflammation or infection persists in the bony area around the end of your tooth after a root canal procedure.. Your endodontist performs this microsurgical procedure first making you ...

White fillings have always been considered less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings. But there are now new materials available with properties comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite. Your dentist can advise you on the life expectancy of your fillings. However, any fillings provided on the NHS are automatically guaranteed for one year.. ...
There are several reasons why your root canal treatment may not have succeeded at first. The "canals" themselves are slender, forking passageways deep inside the tooth that enclose nerves and blood vessels: the tooths soft "pulp." They can be so narrow and intricate that some may have gone undetected, or failed to respond to treatment the first time. Or, the canals might have become recontaminated via a number of routes: a delayed or ineffective crown restoration, new tooth decay, advancing gum disease, or a cracked or fractured tooth. Any of these conditions could result in reinfection.. If initial root canal (endodontic) therapy has failed, the first thing to do is evaluate your options. Besides retreatment, the alternatives may include endodontic surgery or extraction (removal) of the tooth. However, a missing tooth should be replaced by a dental implant, a bridge or a partial denture as soon as possible - and none of these are simple or inexpensive options. Thats part of the reason we ...

Untreated PEB disks and PEB treated with AlCl3 were implanted subdermally in BALB/c mice for 30, 60, and 180 days. The calcification of the elastin disks was examined with histological analysis and atomic absorption analysis of calcium content. The inflammatory reaction was evaluated both with histological analysis of explants and by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of the serum in each mouse to determine the ...

Dental radiographs are commonly called X-rays. Dentists use radiographs for many reasons: to find hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities. A radiographic image is formed by a controlled burst of X-ray radiation which penetrates oral structures at different levels, depending on varying anatomical densities, before striking the film or sensor. Teeth appear lighter because less radiation penetrates them to reach the film. Dental caries, infections and other changes in the bone density, and the periodontal ligament, appear darker because X-rays readily penetrate these less dense structures. Dental restorations (fillings, crowns) may appear lighter or darker, depending on the density of the material. The dosage of X-ray radiation received by a dental patient is typically small (around 0.150 mSv for a full mouth series, according to the American Dental Association website), equivalent to a few days' worth of background environmental radiation exposure, or similar ...
... encompasses the study (practice) of the basic and clinical sciences of normal dental pulp, the etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the dental pulp along with associated periradicular conditions. Endodontics has evolved tremendously in the past decade and its applications have immensely improved the quality of dental treatment.[2] In clinical terms, endodontics involves either preserving part, or all of the dental pulp in health, or removing all of the pulp in irreversible disease. This includes teeth with irreversibly inflamed and infected pulpal tissue. Not only does endodontics involve treatment when a dental pulp is present, but also includes preserving teeth which have failed to respond to non-surgical endodontic treatment, or for teeth that have developed new lesions, e.g., when root canal re-treatment is required, or periradicular surgery.[3] The main purpose of endodontic treatment (root canal therapy) is to remove the diseased pulp, ...

In industry, EDTA is mainly used to sequester metal ions in aqueous solution. In the textile industry, it prevents metal ion impurities from modifying colors of dyed products. In the pulp and paper industry, EDTA inhibits the ability of metal ions, especially Mn2+, from catalyzing the disproportionation of hydrogen peroxide, which is used in chlorine-free bleaching. In a similar manner, EDTA is added to some food as a preservative or stabilizer to prevent catalytic oxidative decoloration, which is catalyzed by metal ions.[4] In soft drinks containing ascorbic acid and sodium benzoate, EDTA mitigates formation of benzene (a carcinogen).[5] The reduction of water hardness in laundry applications and the dissolution of scale in boilers both rely on EDTA and related complexants to bind Ca2+, Mg2+, as well as other metal ions. Once bound to EDTA, these metal centers tend not to form precipitates or to interfere with the action of the soaps and detergents. For similar reasons, cleaning solutions often ...
There have been a number of progressive iterations to the mechanical preparation of the root canal for endodontic therapy. The first, referred to as the standardized technique, was developed by Ingle in 1961, and had disadvantages such as the potential for loss of working length and inadvertent ledging, zipping or perforation.[10][11] Subsequent refinements have been numerous, and are usually described as techniques. These include the step-back, circumferential filing, incremental, anticurvature filing, step-down, double flare, crown-down-pressureless, balanced force, canal master, apical box, progressive enlargement, modified double flare, passive stepback, alternated rotary motions, and apical patency techniques.[12] The "'step back technique, also known as telescopic or serial root canal preparation, is divided in two phases: in the first, the working length is established and then the apical part of the canal is delicately shaped since a size 25 K-file reaches the working length; in the ...
