3-dimensional Analysis of Regenerative Endodontic Treatment Outcome
A growing body of evidence supports the regeneration potential of dental tissues after regenerative endodontic treatment (RET). Nevertheless, a standard method for the evaluation of RET outcome is lacking. The aim of this study was to develop a standardized quantitative method for RET outcome analysis based on cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) volumetric measurements.

Enriched Trimethylation of Lysine 4 of Histone H3 of WDR63 Enhanced Osteogenic Differentiation Potentials of Stem Cells from Apical Papilla
Dental tissue–derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a reliable cell source for dental tissue regeneration. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying their directed differentiation remain unclear, thus limiting their use. Trimethylation of lysine 4 of histone H3 (H3K4Me3) correlates with gene activation and osteogenic differentiation. We used stem cells from apical papilla (SCAPs) to investigate the effects of genomic changes in H3K4Me3 modification at gene promoter regions on MSC osteogenic differentiation.

Analysis of Multiple Cytokine Polymorphisms in Individuals with Untreated Deep Carious Lesions Reveals (rs1143643) as a Susceptibility Factor for Periapical Lesion Development
It has been proposed that individual genetic predisposition may contribute to persistent apical periodontitis. Cytokines are associated with levels of inflammation and are involved in caries, pulpal, and periapical tissue destruction. We hypothesized that polymorphisms in cytokine genes may contribute to an individual's increased susceptibility to apical tissue destruction in response to deep carious lesions.

Long-term Survival of Endodontically Treated Teeth at a Public Dental Specialist Clinic
The long-term survival of endodontically treated teeth is an issue of high priority focus in modern restorative dentistry. In available literature, survival is generally high and comparable with implants. For more compromised teeth treated in a specialist clinic, survival rate may be lower. This retrospective study aimed to investigate the 10-year survival rate of teeth treated in a public endodontic specialist clinic. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Assessment of Patients' Awareness and Factors Influencing Patients' Demands for Sedation in Endodontics
Endodontic therapy is perceived by many as a procedure to be feared. Many studies have reported that fear and anxiety are major deterrents to seeking dental care in general, but only a few deal with the use of sedation in endodontic therapies. The purpose of this study was to assess patients' awareness of and factors influencing the potential demand for sedation in endodontics. We hypothesized that there is an association between demographic factors and the demand for sedation in endodontics. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

FOXP3 DNA Methylation Levels as a Potential Biomarker in the Development of Periapical Lesions
Epigenetic mechanisms, such as DNA methylation, can modify gene expression patterns without changing the DNA sequence, comprising a tool that cells use to lock genes in the “off” position. Variations in the methylation profile have been correlated to a variety of human diseases. Here, we hypothesize that DNA methylation in immune response–related genes may contribute to the development of periapical lesions. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Do Metal Post–retained Restorations Result in More Root Fractures than Fiber Post–retained Restorations? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Teeth requiring endodontic treatment commonly have compromised a coronal tooth structure that often requires the use of an intraradicular post to retain the coronal restoration. Although usually successful, catastrophic failures requiring extraction have been reported in the literature. The aim of this systematic review was to analyze clinical trials and cohort studies that evaluated the incidence rate of root fractures in post-retained restorations. The hypothesis was that the incidence rate related to the use of metal posts was higher than that of fiber posts. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)
