Single-rooted teeth include mandibular first and second premolars and the maxillary second premolar teeth. The maxillary first premolar has two roots in most cases. Maxillary molars have three roots. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p690)
Death of pulp tissue with or without bacterial invasion. When the necrosis is due to ischemia with superimposed bacterial infection, it is referred to as pulp gangrene. When the necrosis is non-bacterial in origin, it is called pulp mummification.

The cavity within the SPINAL COLUMN through which the SPINAL CORD passes.
Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.

Lasers with a semiconductor diode as the active medium. Diode lasers transform electric energy to light using the same principle as a light-emitting diode (LED), but with internal reflection capability, thus forming a resonator where a stimulated light can reflect back and forth, allowing only a certain wavelength to be emitted. The emission of a given device is determined by the active compound used (e.g., gallium arsenide crystals doped with aluminum or indium). Typical wavelengths are 810, 1,060 and 1,300 nm.

Dental anesthetic management of a patient with ventricular arrhythmias. (1/231)

During routine deep sedation for endodontic therapy, a dentist-anesthesiologist observed premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) on a 62-yr-old woman's electrocardiogram (EKG) tracing. The dentist was able to complete the root canal procedure under intravenous (i.v.) sedation without any problems. The dentist-anesthesiologist referred the patient for medical evaluation. She was found to be free from ischemic cardiac disease with normal ventricular function. The patient was cleared to continue her dental treatment with deep sedation. She subsequently continued to undergo dental treatment with deep intravenous sedation without incident, although her EKG exhibited frequent PVCs, up to 20 per minute, including couplets and episodes of trigeminy. This article will review indications for medical intervention, antiarrhythmic medications, and anesthetic interventions for perioperative PVCs.  (+info)

High-altitude illness induced by tooth root infection. (2/231)

High-altitude illness may occur after recent pulmonary infection, but high-altitude illness after root canal therapy has not been described previously. A 44-year-old man is presented who skied to a 3333 m high peak in the Eastern Alps one day after he had undergone root canal therapy because of a tooth root infection. After 4 hours above 3000 m severe symptoms of high-altitude illness, including pulmonary oedema, developed. His condition improved after immediate descent. The next day he presented with local and general signs of infection which were successfully treated with gingival incisions and antibiotics. In conclusion, acute tooth root infection and root canal therapy may induce high-altitude illness at an altitude just above 3000 m.  (+info)

21st-century endodontics. (3/231)

BACKGROUND: Endodontics as a discipline has offered patients the opportunity to maintain their natural teeth. As the population expands and ages, the demand for endodontic therapy can be expected to increase as patients seek dental options to keep their teeth for a lifetime. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: New materials, techniques and instruments are entering the market-place to assist dentists in providing patients with more predictable and reliable endodontic treatment. In addition, these new systems make the delivery of endodontic services more efficient. This article describes these advances in endodontic treatment for dentists interested in incorporating these advances into their clinical practice.  (+info)

Lower lip numbness due to peri-radicular dental infection. (4/231)

Lower lip numbness has always been a sinister symptom. Much has been written about it being the sole symptom of pathological lesions and metastatic tumours in the mandible. It may also be a symptom of manifestations of certain systemic disorders. A case of lower lip numbness resulting from the compression of the mental nerve by a peri-radicular abscess is presented because of the unusual nature of this spread of infection.  (+info)

Adverse reactions triggered by dental local anesthetics: a clinical survey. (5/231)

One hundred and seventy-nine patients completed a questionnaire focusing on adverse reactions to dental local anesthetics as manifested by 16 signs and symptoms. Twenty-six percent of the participants reported having at least 1 adverse reaction. It was found that most of the adverse reactions occurred within the first 2 hours following the injection of local anesthetics. Pallor, palpitations, diaphoresis, and dizziness were the most common adverse reactions reported in the study. The results pointed to a significant relationship between anxiety, gender, injection technique, and procedure with a higher incidence of adverse reactions.  (+info)

In vitro effect of intracanal medicaments on strict anaerobes by means of the broth dilution method. (6/231)

The determination of bacterial susceptibility to intracanal medicaments is a necessity. Nevertheless, few studies utilize the proper methodology to carry out that evaluation with anaerobes. In this study, the steps of a broth dilution method, carried out in microplates (microdilution) and tubes (macrodilution), to test the effect of traditional intracanal medicaments on anaerobic bacteria are described. The results are presented as values of minimal inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations (MIC and MBC). Standardized inocula of the anaerobic bacteria Prevotella nigrescens (ATCC 33563), Fusobacterium nucleatum (ATCC 25586) and Clostridium perfringens (ATCC 13124), in reinforced Clostridium medium (RCM) and supplemented Brucella broth, were submitted to different concentrations of calcium hydroxide, chlorhexidine digluconate, camphorated paramonochlorophenol and formocresol solutions. The drugs were diluted in the same culture broths, in microplates and tubes, and were then incubated in anaerobiosis jars at 37 degrees C for 48 or 96 hours. The determination of MICs was carried out through visual and spectrophotometric readings, and the determination of MBCs, through the plating of aliquots on RCM-blood agar. For that kind of study, the macromethod with spectrophotometric reading should be the natural choice. MICs and MBCs obtained with the macromethod were compatible with the known clinical performance of the studied medications, and the values varied according to the bacteria and culture media employed. RCM was the most effective medium and C. perfringens, the most resistant microorganism.  (+info)

Alopecia areata of dental origin. (7/231)

The association of alopecia areata and infectious foci of dental origin is relatively common, and may be explained by the autoimmune nature of the disorder. We describe a case of alopecia areata with no apparent cause and that was effectively resolved by eliminating a focalized dental infection via endodontic treatment. The presence of common immune mediators in the pathogenesis of both alopecia areata and dental infection could account for the dental origin of the hair loss. In this sense, patients with localized alopecia should be subjected to careful exploration of the oral cavity in search of possible dental infections.  (+info)

Nonsurgical treatment for odontogenic maxillary sinusitis using irrigation through the root canal: preliminary case report. (8/231)

As a new nonsurgical treatment for odontogenic maxillary sinusitis (OMS), irrigation of the maxillary sinus through the root canal of the causal tooth was carried out to the patient with OMS that had proved refractory to conservative treatments (i.e., root-canal treatment of the causal tooth and antibiotic therapy). Clinical signs, symptoms, and radiographs before and after the new treatment revealed evidence of good healing. The clinical signs and symptoms, such as oppressive pain in the cheek and retrorhinorrhoea, entirely disappeared immediately after the irrigation (which was done only once) without pain, and the obstructed ostiomeatal unit was aerated on the follow-up CT images. There was no side effect associated with saline irrigation, nor any recurrence of symptoms since the irrigation. We therefore propose the irrigation through the root canal of the causal tooth as a new treatment for periapical disease-induced maxillary sinusitis, a technique that should ensure proper ventilation and drainage by relieving obstruction of the ostiomeatal unit.  (+info)

What is root canal therapy?. The dental pulp is the inner, soft-tissue, living portion of a tooth that contains the nerves, arteries, veins and lymph vessels. When the pulp becomes critically diseased or injured and dies, the tooth can often times be saved through specialized root canal therapy.. Most often, the cause of pulp death is a fractured or cracked tooth or a deep cavity that exposes the pulp to saliva. The bacteria found in saliva causes infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, the infection eventually causes the pulp to die. Pus can build up at the root tip and form an abscess that can destroy the supporting bone that surrounds the tooth, and often times results in a severe toothache.. A root canal treatment involves removing the diseased pulp, then thoroughly cleaning, shaping, filling and sealing the canal(s) of the tooth. Usually, the tooth is immediately restored with a post & crown for strength and stability.. What does Dr. Singleton do differently?. Dr. Singleton performs ...

The root canal is the part of the tooth that forms a canal within the core or centre of the tooth. This place stretches down into the jaw, where it acts much like the root of tree or a plant to draw up minerals, nutrients, and other things which are critical to your healthy tooth. If the root canal becomes contaminated, then the dentist will probably perform root canal treatment to clean out the bacteria that are dangerous and restore dental well-being.. The root canal place becomes endangered when bacteria invades the pulpy central part of the tooth which is shielded by the hard enamel outside crown of the tooth. This typically occurs because of a cavity that pierces the wall of the tooth and gets overly deep, enabling the disease that caused the cavity. This can be one reason why its so significant that you simply schedule regular dental checkups to analyze for possible cavities. If you go too much time between dental appointments, its not impossible a cavity can advance to the stage that ...

Tooth decay usually begins at the enamel layer, softened by the acid produced by bacteria.

From there the infection can move through the root canals to the bone, dramatically increasing the danger to the tooth. Root canal treatments have a higher chance of success the earlier theyre ...

AIM : To determine the efficacy of cold saline irrigation in reduction of post operative pain following root canal therapy.. METHODOLOGY : Forty patients requiring root canal treatment on permanent single rooted teeth were included. The patients were assigned randomly into two groups of 20 patients each. The teeth in Group1 (n = 20) were irrigated using normal saline solution, whilst those in Group 2 (n = 20) were irrigated with cold saline solution stored at 4 degrees centigrade. A Heft Parker visual analog scale was used to measure pre-operative pain and post-obturation pain at 12, 24,48 and 72 hours after obturation. Chi square tests and Mann Whitney U tests were used for statistical analysis. ...
Root canal is actually the term used to describe the space within the tooth. Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is when the endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp. Root canals are only preformed when the dentist believes an infected tooth is salvageable and can gain functionality again. If the tooth cannot be saved, in most cases it is extracted and replaced with dental implants or dental bridges.. Constant toothaches are a good indication that a tooth is infected and/or inflamed. There are nerve fibers, blood, and lymph tissues living together inside root canals that are funneled through a pulp chamber. When the pulp chamber is damaged it breaks down and allows bacteria to grow.. During root canal therapy, the dentist carefully cleans and shapes the nerve canal of the tooths root, then seals it. Generally a temporary cap or crown is placed on the root canal until the patient can come in for a second visit. In some cases, a ...

Root canal or endodontic treatment is a process whereby inflamed or dead pulp is removed from the inside of the tooth, enabling a tooth that was causing pain to be retained..

After removing the pulp, the root canals are cleaned, sterilised and shaped to a form that can be completely sealed with a filling material to prevent further infection. The treatment can take several appointments, depending on how complex the tooth is, and how long the infection takes to clear.. Subsequently a crown or complex restoration to restore or protect the tooth may be a necessary recommendation, as a tooth after undergoing treatment may be more likely to fracture.. ...

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 anatomy consists of the pulp chamber and root canals. Both contain the dental pulp. The smaller branches, referred to as accessory canals, are most frequently found near the root end (apex), but may be encountered anywhere along the root length. The total number of root canals per tooth depends on the number of the tooth roots ranging from one to four, five or more in some cases. Sometimes there are more than one root canal per root. Some teeth have a more variable internal anatomy than others. An unusual root canal shape, complex branching (especially the existence of horizontal branches), and multiple root canals are considered as the main causes of root canal treatment failures. (e.g. If a secondary root canal goes unnoticed by the dentist and is not cleaned and sealed, it will remain infected, causing the root canal therapy to fail ...
