Arrested eruption of the permanent lower second molar. (1/423)

The incidence of retention/impaction of the permanent lower second molar (M2inf) lies between 0.6/1000 and 3/1000. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to investigate the craniofacial morphology, the frequency of dental anomalies and the inclination of the affected M2inf and the adjacent first molar in patients with arrested eruption of M2inf. The overall goal was to elucidate the aetiology of arrested tooth eruption and to present the characteristics of these patients in order to improve diagnosis and treatment planning. Radiographic material (profile radiographs and orthopantomograms) from 19 patients (nine females and 10 males; 13-19 years of age at the time of referral) were analysed. The ages of the patients when profile radiographs were taken for cephalometric analysis varied from 8 to 16 years. The study shows that this group of patients, compared with a reference group, had an increased sagittal jaw relationship (Class II). Specifically, the mandibular prognathism was less, the mandibular gonial angle smaller, the mandibular alveolar prognathism enlarged and the maxillary incisor inclination less than in the reference group. Furthermore, this group of patients had a more frequent occurrence of morphological tooth anomalies, such as root deflections, invaginations, and taurodontism. However, none of the patients with arrested eruption of M2inf had agenesis of the lower third molar. The study did not reveal an association between the degree of inclination of the M2inf and that of the first molar in the same region. The results of this investigation show that conditions such as the craniofacial morphology and deviations in the dentition are associated with arrested eruption of M2inf. Therefore, it is important to evaluate these conditions in future diagnosis and treatment planning of patients with arrested eruption of M2inf.  (+info)

Description of Mogibacterium pumilum gen. nov., sp. nov. and Mogibacterium vescum gen. nov., sp. nov., and reclassification of Eubacterium timidum (Holdeman et al. 1980) as Mogibacterium timidum gen. nov., comb. nov. (2/423)

A new genus, Mogibacterium, is proposed for anaerobic, non-spore-forming, Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria which have been isolated from the periodontal pockets of adult human patients with periodontal disease and infected root canals. The novel isolates, strains D2-18T, BA11a-f and D5-2T, were inert in most of the conventional biochemical tests and phenotypically resemble asaccharolytic Eubacterium species. The protein profiles of whole cells on SDS-PAGE gels and Western immunoblotting reaction analysis distinguished these organisms from type strains belonging to the previously described Eubacterium species. The G + C content of the DNA is 45-46 mol% for Mogibacterium pumilum and 46 mol% for Mogibacterium vescum. The levels of DNA-DNA relatedness of these new species to other Eubacterium species, including Eubacterium limosum, Eubacterium brachy, Eubacterium lentum, Eubacterium nodatum, Eubacterium saphenum, and the more recently proposed Eubacterium minutum and Eubacterium exiguum (reclassified as Slackia exigua), are less than 2%. The DNA-DNA hybridization value between M. pumilum and M. vescum was 30%. Eubacterium timidum exhibited DNA homologies with Mogibacterium species which were low (17 and 18%) but clearly higher than with all the other Eubacterium species. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the closest phylogenetic neighbour of Mogibacterium species was E. timidum, and that these three species represent a novel lineage distinct from the previously described genera of Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria. On the basis of phenotypic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons, it is also proposed that E. timidum is transferred to the genus Mogibacterium gen. nov. as Mogibacterium timidum gen. nov., comb. nov. (type strain ATCC 33093T).  (+info)

Characterization of Actinomyces isolates from infected root canals of teeth: description of Actinomyces radicidentis sp. nov. (3/423)

Two strains of a previously undescribed Actinomyces-like bacterium were recovered in pure culture from infected root canals of teeth. Analysis by biochemical testing and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of whole-cell proteins indicated that the strains closely resembled each other phenotypically but were distinct from previously described Actinomyces and Arcanobacterium species. Comparative 16S rRNA gene-sequencing studies showed the bacterium to be a hitherto unknown subline within a group of Actinomyces species which includes Actinomyces bovis, the type species of the genus. Based on phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, we propose that the unknown bacterium isolated from human clinical specimens be classified as Actinomyces radicidentis sp. nov. The type strain of Actinomyces radicidentis is CCUG 36733.  (+info)

Application of high resolution microfocus X-ray CT for the observation of human tooth. (4/423)

The calcification degree of extracted human teeth was observed by using high resolution microfocus X-ray CT. As samples, upper and lower first premolars extracted from a 21-year-old female were used. The computed tomograms were produced by high resolution microfocus X-ray CT with a open vacuum X-ray source, rotating sample stage, and image sensor. The distinction between enamel and dentin was very clear, and the shape of the pulp cavity was also clearly identified. The secondary dentin was visible in the circumpulpal dentin. The color map displays showed the heterogeneity of the calcification degree not only in the dentin but also in the enamel. The enamel was divided into three layers according to the calcification degree. High resolution microfocus X-ray CT was very useful for the observation of the internal structure of human teeth without destroying the samples.  (+info)

Unusual maxillary first molar with 2 palatal canals within a single root: a case report. (5/423)

A case report is presented regarding a maxillary first molar with 5 canals. The morphology is atypical because it is characterized by a single palatal root with 2 canals with separate orifices joining in the apical third. A literature review pertaining to the morphology of maxillary first molars is discussed. Modifications to the normal access opening and examination of the pulpal floor for additional canals are stressed.  (+info)

Effect of NaClO treatment on bonding to root canal dentin using a new evaluation method. (6/423)

The purposes of this study were to investigate the reliability and efficiency of a new evaluation method for resin bonding to root canal dentin, which measures both marginal adaptation and shear bond strength simultaneously, and to determine the effects of root canal irrigants on resin bonding. A wet bonding system (Single Bond) and a self-etching primer system (Clearfil Mega Bond) were employed; NaClO was used as a root canal irrigant. No gaps or changes in bond strength were observed despite the NaClO treatment when the wet bonding system was employed, while the gap formation ratio increased, and bond strength decreased with longer NaClO treatment time when the self-etching primer system was employed. These findings suggested that this new experimental method was effective for evaluating resin systems to the root canal wall dentin which is affected by irrigation with NaClO.  (+info)

The formation of apical delta of the permanent teeth in dogs. (7/423)

To determine the process of formation of apical delta, a histological study on the permanent teeth was carried out in dogs. A litter of 7 clinically healthy beagle dogs and 33 adult dogs (4- to 15- year-old) of 12 breeds with periodontal disease were used for the experiments. Teeth extracted from 6-,7-,8- and 9-month-old beagles were sectioned and stained with HE solution. Tooth roots obtained from adult dogs with periodontal disease were ground. Each tooth was classified into the following root types under a light microscope: Type I (no apical delta = no apical closure), II (few apical delta), IIIA (low apical delta) and IIIB (high apical delta). In the 6-month-old beagles, more than half the tooth roots were classified as type I. In the 7-month-old beagles, type IIIB apical delta was the most predominant and types I, II and IIIA apical delta were occassionally seen. Apical closure and delta were observed in all beagles at 8 months of age histologically. In the 8- and 9-month-old beagles, all root apexes observed were type IIIB. Most of the 314 tooth roots extracted from 33 adult dogs were type IIIB, but a few were type IIIA.  (+info)

Molecular identification of microorganisms from endodontic infections. (8/423)

A relatively wide range of bacteria have been isolated from root canals using standard culture techniques. However, only 50% of the bacteria in the oral cavity are cultivable (S. S. Socransky et al., Arch. Oral Biol. 8:278-280, 1963); hence, bacterial diversity in endodontic infections is underestimated. This study used a PCR-based 16S rRNA gene assay, followed by cloning and sequencing of 16S rRNA amplicons from a small subset of samples to assess the diversity of bacteria present in infected root canals. A total of 41 clinical samples from 15 de novo and 26 refractory cases of endodontic infections were assessed. Of these samples, 44% were positive by culture and 68% were positive by PCR. Eight samples were selected for further analysis. Of these, the two de novo cases yielded sequences related to those of the genera Enterococcus, Lactobacillus, Propionibacterium, and Streptococcus and two clones were related to previously uncultivated bacteria, while the sinus-associated, de novo case yielded sequences related to those of the genera Lactobacillus, Pantoea, Prevotella, and Selenomonas. The five refractory cases produced clones which were related to the genera Capnocytophaga, Cytophaga, Dialister, Eubacterium, Fusobacterium, Gemella, Mogibacterium, Peptostreptococcus, Prevotella, Propionibacterium, Selenomonas, Solobacterium, Streptococcus, and Veillonella and two clones representing previously uncultivated bacteria. The phylogenetic positions of several clones associated with the Clostridiaceae and Sporomusa subgroups of the Firmicutes grouping are also shown. This study demonstrates that molecular techniques can detect the presence of bacteria in endodontic infections when culture techniques yield a negative result and can be used to identify a wider range of endodontic-infection-related bacteria including the presence of previously unidentified or unculturable bacteria.  (+info)

Several articles have used cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to study the morphology of the maxillary molars and to ascertain its ability to visualize the second mesiobuccal canal (MB2); however, its geometric location has not been examined in depth. The aim of this study was to describe in vivo the prevalence and location of the MB2 in the mesiobuccal root of the first maxillary molar (1MM) and the second maxillary molar (2MM) through CBCT imaging. Five hundred fifty CBCT images of the 1MM and 550 of the 2MM were analyzed. To detect the MB2 canal, the observation and measurements were done 1 mm apically to the pulpal floor to standardize the methodology. The geometric location of the central point of the MB2 canal (PMB2) was measured in relation to the central point of the mesiobuccal canal (PMB1) and in relation to the line projected between the PMB1 and the central point of the palatal canals (PP). The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, with a value of P | 0.05 being statistically

Direct access to the root canals in posterior teeth for endodontic treatment is most frequently facilitated by the straightening of the coronal parts of the root canals, having as a consequence the relocation of the canal orifices on the map of the floor of the pulp chamber (Christie & Thompson, 1994). This procedure intentionally moves the coronal aspect of a canal away from the center of the chamber, while simultaneously removing internal dentin from the pulp chamber walls. The aim of this study was to evaluate the displacement resulting from the relocation of root canal orifices during the initial phase of rotary root canal treatment in molars using the dental operating microscope (DOM) and digital image processing ...
The portion of the dental pulp cavity in the root of a tooth, extending from the pulp chamber to the apical foramen. More than one canal may be present in a single root.
Dentin is the main component of ivory. Dentin is a calcified tissue of the body, make up largely of mineralized connective tissue and collagen. It is one of the four major components of most teeth and tusks, the others being enamel, cementum, and pulp. Usually, it is covered by enamel on the crown and cementum on the root and surrounds the entire pulp. Teeth and tusks have the same origins. Teeth are specialized structures adapted for food chewing. Tusks are extremely large modified teeth projecting beyond the lips. Teeth and tusks have the same physical structures: pulp cavity, dentine, cementum and enamel. The innermost area is the pulp cavity. The pulp cavity is an empty space within the tooth that conforms to the shape of the pulp. The porous, yellow-hued dentin is made up of about 70 percent inorganic materials (mainly hydroxylapatite and some non-crystalline amorphous calcium phosphate), 20 percent organic materials (90 percent of which is collagen type type and the remaining ten percent ...

In carrying out the prohibition of the sale, manufacture for sale, and all that relates to sale, the next question that arises is whether the scope of the prohibition should be limited to small units, like the town and the county, or should extend to the large units making it state-wide and nation-wide. It is good to have a town dry rather than wet. It is better to have a county dry rather than wet; but if prohibition is by the small unit, then wet towns and wet counties will be found near by, and the virus there generated will pass over continuously and reinfect the dry town and the dry county. It is a good thing to cut out one root of a cancer, it is a better thing to cut out another root, but as long as a single root remains it will generate the virus and inject it into the circulation and reinfect the whole system.

The principal etiology in pulpal and periapical disease is the presence of bacteria in the root canal system (Happasalo et al. 2003). Anatomically complex root canal systems that contain lateral canal ramifications, isthmuses, cul-de-sacs, and other irregularities can impede the elimination of debris and bacteria from the root canal system (Wu et al. 2006). In addition, bacteria can penetrate into dentinal tubules and persist after the completion of the endodontic therapy resulting in refractory infections years later (Vieira et al. 2012). Irrigation is the only way to impact those areas of the root canal system that cannot be cleaned by mechanical instrumentation (Happasalo et al. 2010).. The effectiveness and biocompatibility of irrigating solutions is dependent on a multiplicity of factors such as microorganism susceptibility, penetration of the solution to the infected site, concentration of the solution being used, and the toxicity to host cells (Mohammadi 2008). Sodium hypochlorite has ...
Objective: This study was conducted to determine the most prevalent root canal configuration and the incidence of a second mesio-buccal (MB2) canal in maxillary first molar root in an Indian sub-population of Pune, Maharashtra, India by reviewing cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) images. Methods: Patients who had undergone CBCT scanning for various treatment modalities were retrospectively viewed for the presence of second MB2 canal in the permanent maxillary first molar. Scanning was performed at Peraden & Elite CBCT, Pune, Maharashtra, India. Each tooth was assessed in 1 mm axial and 0.5 mm sagittal sections, to evaluate the presence of a MB2 canal. The images had been evaluated by a maxillofacial radiologist. Results: In total of 117 teeth examined, MB-2 was present in 79 teeth. The prevalence of MB-2 in maxillary first molar was found to be 67.5% in an Indian subpopulation. As far as root canal morphology is concerned, Vertucci Type I was the most common type. Conclusion: Knowing the ...
In the center of each living human tooth there is naturally a space which contains the nerves or pulp of that tooth. This space is known as the root canal and its vitality or life is not crucial to that tooths function in the mouth once it is erupted.. In some cases it may be necessary to remove the nerve from one of your teeth to get you out of pain and save that tooth from being pulled. This procedure is known as a Root Canal or Root Canal Therapy.. If you are feeling tooth pain when you drink cold liquids or eat/chew something very cold you likely have inflamed tissue in your root canal. This inflammation and increased sensitivity can be caused by oral bacteria and their byproducts entering your root canal space through a cavity or underneath a leaky restoration. Depending on the character and duration of your pain as well as the analysis of radiographic and clinical tests we can advise you as to rather it is possible to fix your tooth with a simple filling or if the decay will possibly ...
Background and Objectives: A major objective in endodontic therapy is to disinfect the root canal system prior to obturation. This is because the residual root canal infection can sustain persistent or recurrent periapical disease. Hence, the use of an intracanal medicament between appointments helps in the elimination of bacteria that remain even after cleaning and shaping. The objective of this in vitro study is to compare the antibacterial efficacy of 10% metronidazole gel, 2% chlorhexidine (CHX) gel, and a combination of calcium hydroxide and 2% CHX gel against Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) using a culture technique. Materials and Methods: The study included 40 single-rooted, human permanent teeth, extracted for periodontal or other reasons. Conventional access to the root canals was obtained using access preparation burs in a high speed handpiece. The working length was determined using the Ingles radiographic method and the canals were instrumented using a Step-back technique with ...

Thorough understanding of the anatomic and internal morphology of a root canal system is absolutely essential for the success of endodontic treatment. Since permanent maxillary first molars have shown variation in internal anatomy, morphology, this tooth has been reviewed extensively. Presence of two canals in a two-rooted maxillary first molar has rarely been reported in studies describing tooth and root canal anatomies. In this report, three cases are presented, which involve the root canal treatment of maxillary first molars with fusion of the two buccal roots ...
My No 3 had a root canal and crown. There was a 3/16 Inch circle between the three roots on the X-ray, and a dark line, about 1/16 Inch long on the x-ray. There was another small circle at the tip of one of the roots of #3. I could feel sensitivity in my upper right jaw, when taking a steep step, or changing my head position abruptly. I slap the back of my head lightly, to guage my progress. #3 is the third from the back, upper jaw, Right side. Extraction was recommended. So I had the tooth extracted, and there was a 3/16 Inch diameter bag of a substance, between the three roots, the Oral ...

In anatomy the apical foramen is the opening at the apex of the root of a tooth, through which the nerve and blood vessels that supply the dental pulp pass. Thus it represents the junction of the pulp and the periodontal tissue. The average size of the orifice is 0.3 to 0.4 mm in diameter. There can be two or more foramina separated by a portion of dentin and cementum or by cementum only. If more than one foramen is present on each root, the largest one is designated as the apical foramen and the rest are considered accessory foramina. It is a point of interest in endodontics, as it is considered necessary to thoroughly chemomechanically debride the pulp space to remove all necrotic tissue and minimise bacterial load in the pulp space. Ideally this debridement would terminate exactly at the apical foramen. In reality determining the exact position of the apical foramen is problematic, requiring radiography and/or use of an electronic apex locator to produce a refined estimate. A tooth may have ...

Also known as a root canal, endodontic treatment becomes necessary when the dental pulp is permanently injured. Tooth decay, repeated fillings, physical trauma, or periodontal disease are possible causes. Treatment involves removing the pulp, then cleaning, shaping, and sealing the root canal spaces. The tooth will remain alive because it is nourished by the adjacent tissues of the gums and surrounding bone. After completion of your root canal treatment, you should return to your family dentist for the permanent restoration of the tooth ...
photo provided by Left untreated, a dental abscess (infection) can be a huge problem. An abscess is essentially a pocket of pus that is formed as a result of a bacterial infection in the mouth. This infection, left untreated, can travel to your jaw, neck, brain or cause sepsis, a life-threating infection throughout the body. If the tooth is unable to be saved with a root canal, it must be removed in order to completely remove the infection. Antibiotics will only calm the tooth for a short period and will not cure an abscessed tooth.. What are the signs and symptoms that root canal therapy is needed?. One of the most obvious signs that a root canal is needed is severe pain. It is usually triggered by chewing or the application of pressure. If a tooth has prolonged sensitivity to either heat or cold, lingering after the temperature is removed from the tooth, it also indicates damage to the nerve. If a tooth becomes discolored over time, a bump or small pimple appears close to the root of ...

Root Canal Procedure on Calcified Canals. Case Study Number 317736 Patient referred for pre prosthetic endodontic treatment on mandibular first molar.
The animation on the right depicts the process of a tooth requiring a root canal from an untreated cavity to the subsequent steps that occur to restore the tooth.. The first few images show the tooth with a cavity. If the decay was removed at this point, the tooth would merely need a filling. As the cavity progresses, it breaks through the enamel, which is the hard outer layer of tooth, and it enters the dentin, which is the layer of tooth beneath the enamel. The dentin is much softer and once the decay enters this layer, it spreads much faster as it progresses its way to the pulp.. Once the decay enters the pulp, you now have bacteria from your mouth that invade the root canal system and cause destruction of the surrounding bone, which can be a very serious situation and can cause both serious pain throbbing within the tooth. At this point, you either need to have a root canal or have the tooth extracted. It is also possible for the infection to cause death due to a condition called bacterial ...
Background: During post restoration, different root structures require several types of posts to increase duration of their clinical use. Several materials have been investigated to enhance their quality and optimize their length according to the available root canal.. Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of zirconia, fiber, and ceromer posts with 3‑ and 6‑mm post sizes on the bonding strength of them to root canal dentinal wall with the means of pull‑out bond strength test.. Methods: Forty‑eight single‑rooted mandibular human premolar teeth were collected and prepared for this in vitro study. With resin cement, 3‑ and 6‑mm study posts including zirconia, fiber, and ceromer were luted to prepare teeth. For the retention testing, the pull‑out force was applied to each specimen parallel to longitudinal axis of both the post and tooth. Results: Both type of materials and size of posts changed the value of bonding strength. In all the post types, 6‑mm ones ...
The aim of root canal treatment is to get rid of the damaged pulp and the bacteria that are causing the infection. It involves removing inflamed or dead nerves and blood vessels from the centre of your tooth. This is done by drilling a hole through the top of your tooth to the root canal and removing the dead tissue. The empty root canal system is then cleaned, filled and a permanent seal put over the top of your tooth. The procedure may be carried out over one or two visits. All our dentists are qualified to perform root canal therapy

From Saturday through Sunday, I traveled. Mom and I went down to San Diego and crossed the border into Tijuana on Saturday. The reason for this was because I had some dental work to be done. We have a family friend who is a dentist and when she heard how much they were charging me (out of pocket) Stateside, she told me to go down and shed take care of it for me. It turns out I didnt even need one of the root canals the dentists here were pushing... and, really, there was a lot that I thought I needed but didnt actually need. In fact, I didnt even get a single root canal done; she just repaired the chipped molar and did other things that dentists here didnt want to do but were necessary because of how fragile my health has been. (Those were her own words; they were putting me at a greater risk for refusing to fill a big cavity and the chipped molar.) It took us nearly 2 hours just to cross the border (by car) back into the States on Saturday night and then we slept for a couple of hours ...

The monocots both seemed to have a single root that came out of the side of the seed. Then a stem comes out, connecting the roots and the seed. The seed and the stem start to rise out of the ground and the brown sheds off. Leaves start to sprout from the seed. The leaves soot up, straightening out and the seed, split into two, shrivels up and hangs limply to either side of the plant. The dicot had multiple roots that came out of the bottom of the seed. Then the roots grow longer and some stems grow out of the top. Then the stems start to look like leaves ...

  • Dental caries (cavities) are the most common oral health problem and also can be prevented easily by practicing good oral hygiene. (
  • It is the most frequent sequela of untreated dental caries and frequently results in tooth loss. (
  • It is often the end result of many cases of dental trauma, caries and irreversible pulpitis. (
  • The caries tissue was drilled using a sterile high-speed corundum ball to prepare a cavity, the pulp was opened, the roof of pulp chamber was removed, the crown pulp tissue was removed to find the root canal orifice, and the dental pulp was completely removed using a sterile nerve broach. (
  • however, in the majority of cases, pulp diseases are secondary to dental caries. (
  • The acid can eventually destroy the protective enamel covering on the teeth, causing holes or cavities, called tooth decay or caries. (
  • However, dental caries, tooth decay and dental cavities are often used as synonyms. (

  • The high prevalence of dental caries (cavities) and periodontal (gum) disease is a major public health concern with attendant costs for treatment, loss of productivity, diminished comfort and function, and increased risks to systemic health. (
  • Dental caries is a complex disease process resulting from a shift in the plaque biofilm on teeth in the presence of sugars. (
  • If untreated or uncontrolled, the caries process may affect the dental pulp, or tooth center, which is rich with vascular, nerve, and connective tissue, resulting in pain and infection. (
  • This mirrors what clinicians see when they find dental caries: punctuated areas of decalcification known as 'white spots. (
  • Conclusiones: La prevalencia de caries dental en el grupo evaluado fue alta y la condición de higiene bucal fue mala, por lo que es necesaria la implementación de programas de salud bucal dirigidas a poblaciones de riesgo.Abstract: Objective: To determine the prevalence and severity of dental decay and oral hygiene in children and adolescents in Children ' s Villages of Lima.

  • Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) is a method for cleaning out tooth decay (dental caries) from teeth using only hand instruments (dental hatchets and spoon-shape instruments) and placing a filling. (
  • ART can be used for small, medium and deep cavities (where decay has not reached the tooth nerve dental pulp) caused by dental caries. (
  • More recently, during the International Caries Consensus Collaboration (ICCC) meeting held in Leuven in 2015, ART was recommended by an international group of experts in cariology, restorative and paediatric dentistry as an option to treat decayed primary and permanent teeth with decay where restorative options were indicated, such as cavities that were difficult to clean using only toothbrushes and fluoride toothpaste. (
  • A 32 years old, male patient had suffered subluxation of teeth 12 and 13 and coronal fracture involving enamel and dentin, as well as pulp exposition, of tooth 14 because of a motorcycle accident. (

  • This critical cavity contains the nerves and blood supply that keep the teeth alive. (
  • While pulp cavities are located deep within the teeth, they're not immune to dental problems. (
  • Large cavities or cracks in the teeth allow bacteria to reach the pulp, resulting in an infection and possibly a pocket of pus called a tooth abscess . (
  • The blood vessels within the pulp can become inflamed due to stressors like repeated dental procedures or clenching and grinding the teeth, a condition known as bruxism. (
  • A good oral hygiene routine helps remove food particles and plaque from the teeth, which helps prevent cavities. (
  • It's also important to protect your teeth from trauma that could injure the pulp cavity. (
  • The dentist can also thoroughly examine your teeth for problems like cavities that could affect the pulp cavity if left untreated. (
  • To protect the pulp cavities, follow a good oral hygiene routine, protect the teeth from trauma and see a dentist regularly. (
  • Decay occurs where food and bacteria such as Lactobacillus species and Streptococcus mutans adhere to the surface of the teeth, especially in pits or crevices, and form dental plaque . (
  • When the teeth are brushed, food particles that lodge between the teeth should also be removed with dental floss. (
  • The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry ( AAPD ) intends these recommendations to aid in the diagnosis of pulp health versus pathosis and to set forth the indications, objectives, and therapeutic interventions for pulp therapy in primary and immature permanent teeth. (
  • Recommendations on pulp therapy for primary and immature permanent teeth were developed by the Clinical Affairs Committee - Pulp Therapy Subcommittee and adopted in 1991. (
  • The primary objective of pulp therapy is to maintain the integrity and health of the teeth and their supporting tissues. (
  • Especially in young permanent teeth with immature roots, the pulp is integral to continue apexogenesis. (
  • In permanent teeth, electric pulp tests and thermal tests may be helpful. (
  • The invention of the microscope made it possible to examine the tooth pulp closely - scientists have since discovered that teeth contain hollow tubes located in the dentin, according to the American Dental Association (ADA) , which, when diseased, give off a worm-like impression. (
  • Plaque develops when germs build up on the surface of the teeth, irritating the gum tissue and accumulating on the enamel, and cause cavities that may expose the sensitive tooth pulp. (

  • Using GelMA, the team encapsulated a mix of human dental pulp stem cells - obtained from extracted wisdom teeth - and endothelial cells, which accelerate cell growth. (
  • Next, the drill template is placed in the measuring guide and manipulated until a drill bit profile is located which will maintain the safe margin around the pulp chamber and yet not cut into adjacent teeth. (
  • However, the endodontic literature reports cases of treatment of teeth with necrotized pulp and periapical diseases in a single session and sometimes within a relatively short period (7;8;9;10;11), which had a good outcome. (

  • In young ages the pulp chamber is bigger which makes the teeth more sensitive. (
  • Once a cat cavity is confirmed, your vet will want to move forward with a thorough, deep cleaning and full extraction of the affected tooth or teeth. (
  • Also, teeth affected by cat cavities are already very fragile, and easily fracture or break during the cleaning or removal process anyway. (
  • Our pets teeth and dental care requirements are very similar to our own. (

  • Rabbits have hypsodont dentition, i.e., their teeth have a long anatomic crown with only a small portion of the crown clinically visible in the oral cavity (clinical crown) and a larger portion of the crown residing within the alveolar bone (reserve crown) ( 10 ). (
  • This is the inflammation of the pulp secondary to injury, root and tooth fractures, dental cavities, and repetitive trauma commonly due to constant grinding of the teeth. (
  • After the decayed pulp removal, your teeth are filled with various types of dental fillings. (
  • Pulp therapy is, however, only done on milk teeth. (
  • Not taking proper care of your teeth and gums - such as not brushing your teeth twice a day and not flossing - can increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, tooth abscess, and other dental and mouth complications. (

  • Pulp necrosis arrests root development in injured immature permanent teeth, which may result in tooth loss. (
  • We show that implantation of autologous tooth stem cells from deciduous teeth regenerated dental pulp with an odontoblast layer, blood vessels, and nerves in two animal models. (
  • Iatrogenic dental procedures (wedging of teeth , cavity or crown preparation. (
  • The pulp may also become exposed or nearly exposed by pathologic wear of the teeth from either abrasion or attrition if secondary dentin is not deposited rapidly enough. (
  • Laser radiation sufficient to cause cavitation in teeth also causes severe degenerative changes in the pulp. (
  • The dental pulp is placed in the center of teeth and is a heterogeneous soft tissue. (
  • Tooth Decay Treatment: Cavities Formed In My Upper Two Teeth And Two Wisdom Teeth. (
  • Make sure that you brush your teeth twice a day, in order to prevent dental problems. (
  • The microorganisms in this biofilm produce acids that demineralize the calcified tooth structure and, if the process is not disrupted, teeth are demineralized until a cavity forms. (
  • The researchers imaged the bacteria that cause tooth decay in three dimensions in their natural environment, the sticky biofilm known as dental plaque formed on toddlers' teeth that were affected by cavities. (
  • We started with these clinical samples, extracted teeth from children with severe tooth decay," says Hyun (Michel) Koo of Penn Dental Medicine, a co-senior author on the work. (
  • To address this question, the researchers, including lead author Dongyeop Kim of Penn Dental Medicine and co-senior author Marvin Whiteley of Georgia Tech, used a combination of super-resolution confocal and scanning electron microscopy with computational analysis to dissect the arrangement of S. mutans and other microbes of the intact biofilm on the teeth.

  • In general, if a cavity has broken through the enamel and is into the underlying dentin, or is able to be probed with an explorer, it has undergone cavitation, and requires treatment. (
  • Early dental cavities that have not spread to the dentin or have undergone cavitation should not be treated, as they can be healed or re-mineralized with fluoride. (

  • You should consider visiting a dentist to have the cavities treated. (
  • The root canals are the lower section of the cavity found within the tooth roots. (
  • Students also are trained in procedures for pediatric patients, such as baby tooth root canals or pulp therapy. (
  • Inflammatory and/or noninflammatory processes contribute to produce a reparative dentinal bridge closing the pulp exposure, with minute canaliculi and large tunnel defects. (
  • Pulp exposure and moderate inflammatory process. (
  • Indications: direct pulp capping from mechanical exposure when root canal treatment is declined by patient. (
  • Accidental exposure of the pulp during excavation of carious tooth structure. (
  • Soft carious tissue is left over the pulp to avoid exposure and "stress" to the pulp, thereby promoting pulpal health, while peripheral enamel and dentine are prepared to hard dentine, to allow a tight seal and placement of a durable restoration. (
  • If too deep and close to the pulp, only the soft decayed tissue is removed from the cavity floor to avoid the risk of pulp exposure. (
  • Concerns over the cost and destructive nature of dental treatment have led to the call for novel minimally invasive, biologically based restorative solutions. (
  • The aim of this review is to highlight the potential role of epigenetic approaches in the treatment of the damaged dental pulp, considering the opportunities and obstacles, such as off-target effects, delivery mechanisms, for the therapeutic use of miRNA as an inflammatory biomarker or molecular target, before discussing the application of HDACi and DNMTi to the damaged pulp to stimulate repair. (
  • Therefore, pulp preservation is a primary goal for treatment of the young permanent dentition. (
  • a review of past and present dental history and treatment, including current symptoms and chief complaint. (
  • A dental crown, or cap, is a restorative dental treatment that caps or covers a tooth or dental implant. (
  • In the situations of pulp vitality, the endodontic treatment in a single session is ideal if there is time for the accomplishment of the procedure. (
  • Treatment can help prevent tooth damage from leading to cavities. (
  • A common type of laser used for treatment of dental cavities is the erbium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG). (
  • In short, roughly 90-95% of all dental treatment cannot be treated with today's dental lasers. (
  • Dental amalgam is a combination of mercury with other metals and has been used for over 150 years for the treatment of tooth cavities because it is very strong and durable. (
  • Root canal treatment is necessary when the dental 'pulp' - the soft tissue within the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels - becomes inflamed. (
  • Professor Elizabeth Kaye, from the Boston University School of Dental Medicine in Massachusetts, USA, said: 'We found that cigarette smokers are 70% more likely to need root canal treatment than non-smokers. (
  • She added: 'Other studies have also suggested that smokers experience more dental cavities, which is a major reason for root canal treatment. (
  • It requires the dental professional to assess each and every patient's risk factors for the disease and then develop a personalized treatment plan to systematically lower their risk. (
  • We randomly allocated 30 patients to the human deciduous pulp stem cell (hDPSC) implantation group and 10 patients to the group receiving traditional apexification treatment. (
  • The treatment of dental cavities goes back centuries, but it was not until 1875 that Dr. G.V. Black first described an organized approach to their treatment. (
  • Dental pulp is a soft, spongy tissue containing sensitive nerves and blood vessels. (
  • With certain exceptions-to be noted later-the dental appendages of animals are very similar to those of humans. (
  • citation needed] Tests for a necrotic pulp include: vitality testing using a thermal test or an electric pulp tester. (
  • As dental pulp supplies nutrients and detects the pathogenic stimuli, the vitality and freshness of dental pulp are crucial for the survival of a tooth [ 1 ]. (
  • Cavities is very common, it's signs and symptoms can vary. (
  • Cavities and dental trauma aren't the only situations that can affect the pulp cavities. (
  • The pulp may be partially necrotic for some time. (
  • The area of cell death enlarges until the entire pulp is necrotic. (
  • A hole is then drilled into the tooth and the pulp tissue is removed from the tooth. (
  • The number of leaking vessels depended on the depth of the cavity, becoming greater as the cavity depth increased. (
  • A study was made to develop a method for investigating the quantity and location of vascular leakage during acute inflammation of the dental pulp. (
  • Dental health problems are considered one of the most common Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) among the elderly and those with underlying diseases. (
  • therefore, veterinarians need to be familiar with the most common diseases afflicting rabbits including dental diseases. (
  • Complications in administrating dental anesthesia may occur due to preventable or unpreventable circumstances. (
  • Pulp fibroblasts become odontoblast-like cells producing type I collagen, alkaline phosphatase, and SPARC/osteonectin. (
  • In the replants and autogenic transplants, dense LRCs remained in the center of dental pulp associating with the perivascular environment throughout the experimental period and possessed a proliferative capacity and maintained the differentiation capacity into the odontoblast-like cells or fibroblasts. (
  • A major recent advancement in palaeomicrobial research has been the discovery that dental calculus acts as a long-term reservoir of high-quality biomolecules from human-associated microorganisms [ 35 - 39 ]. (
  • P. gingivalis is known as a keystone pathogen, which means it has the potential to distort the balance of microorganisms in dental plaque , causing disease. (
  • In removing this material, it is important to leave a stub of the tooth which is properly shaped to receive and support the crown or bridge, and at the same time it is essential not to invade the pulp cavity within the tooth. (
  • Journal of Dental Research 2002, 81 (special issue 1), A254 abstract no. 1960. (
  • Nitrous oxide with local anesthetic or other medicines may be an option if you are afraid of dental treatments. (
  • Data from patients with dental cavities, who reported starting treatments within the last 5 years. (
  • This is definitely one of the most popular dental treatments for the creation of a nice smile and the improvement of facial structure. (
