Disease relevance of Endodontics


High impact information on Endodontics

  • Ultrasound in dentistry. Part 2--Periodontology and endodontics [2].
  • The teaching and practice of some clinical aspects of endodontics in Great Britain [3].
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the concept that novice clinicians could perform clinical endodontics better and more efficiently if the stainless steel hand file technique is replaced with a nickel titanium rotary file technique [4].
  • The probable reasons for this are multi-factorial, but may be linked to the amount of pre-clinical and clinical teaching in endodontics at the University Dental School and Hospital, Cork [5].
  • Nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) rotary files have become a mainstay in clinical endodontics because of their ability to produce smooth tapered canal preparations with reproducible results [6].

Anatomical context of Endodontics

  • With the development of rotary nickel-titanium files and their applications in Endodontics, the concepts of root canal preparation have changed [7].
  • The capacity to bond to dental tissues, especially to dentine, their long-term fluoride release and their biocompatibility make glass ionomer cements (GICs) advantageous for use in endodontics, as well as in restorative dentistry [8].

Associations of Endodontics with chemical compounds


Gene context of Endodontics

  • New directions in endodontics. Interview by Mark J. Friedman [14].
  • At the Academic Centre for Dentistry, Amsterdam (ACTA) clinical endodontics is taught and practised in a general clinic supervised by general dental practitioner instructors; they are continuously trained and supported by the endodontics staff, who are members of the Department of Cariology and Endodontology [15].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Endodontics

  • KEY LEARNING POINTS: * Arsenic and its compounds have no place in contemporary endodontics. * Dentists should protect their patients by avoiding the use of arsenic-containing materials and refusing to use products whose constituents are not known. * Localized bone necrosis may not require tooth extraction [16].
