Disease relevance of Dental Pulp Necrosis


High impact information on Dental Pulp Necrosis

  • These results indicate that conventional endodontic therapy with calcium hydroxide results in the reduction of pathogenic species associated with pulp necrosis [2].
  • Two of 21 (9.5%) apical third root fracture teeth and three of five (60%) middle third root fracture teeth had pulp necrosis in the coronal fragments [3].
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate the in vivo antimicrobial activity of 2% chlorhexidine gluconate (FCFRP-USP) used as a root canal irrigating solution in teeth with pulp necrosis and radiographically visible chronic periapical reactions [4].

Chemical compound and disease context of Dental Pulp Necrosis

  • The use of calcium hydroxide in the treatment of teeth with post-traumatic pulp necrosis and its sequelae has been shown to be extremely beneficial for the long-term retention of the injured teeth [5].
