The Effect of Rubber Dam Usage on the Survival Rate of Teeth Receiving Initial Root Canal Treatment: A Nationwide Population-based Study
It is well-known that the usage of rubber dams during root canal treatment (RCT) improves infection control and treatment efficacy and protects patients. However, the effect of rubber dam usage on endodontic outcomes remain uncertain. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether rubber dam usage affects the survival rate of initial RCT using a nationwide population-based database. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Effects of Platelet-rich Plasma and Cell Coculture on Angiogenesis in Human Dental Pulp Stem Cells and Endothelial Progenitor Cells
In this study, we used PRP instead of serum to culture human dental pulp stem cells (hDPSCs) and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) and investigated revascularization ability. The effect of hDPSC and EPC coculture on vasculogenesis was also studied. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Hydration of Biodentine, Theracal LC, and a Prototype Tricalcium Silicate–based Dentin Replacement Material after Pulp Capping in Entire Tooth Cultures
The calcium-releasing ability of pulp-capping materials induces pulp tissue regeneration. Tricalcium silicate–based materials produce calcium hydroxide as a by-product of hydration. Assessment of hydration and calcium ion leaching is usually performed on samples that have been aged in physiological solution for a predetermined period of time. The hydration and activity of the materials in vivo may not be similar to those displayed in vitro because of insufficient fluid available in contact with dentin. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Micromorphology of the Dental Pulp Is Highly Preserved in Cancer Patients Who Underwent Head and Neck Radiotherapy
Teeth are often included in the radiation field during head and neck radiotherapy, and recent clinical evidence suggests that dental pulp is negatively affected by the direct effects of radiation, leading to impaired sensitivity of the dental pulp. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the direct effects of radiation on the microvasculature, innervation, and extracellular matrix of the dental pulp of patients who have undergone head and neck radiotherapy.

Bacterial Removal Promoted by 2 Single-file Systems: Wave One and One Shape
Different single-file systems are available for endodontic treatment; however, comparative studies are scarce. Thus, the present study evaluated bacterial reduction promoted by 2 single-file systems: Wave One (Dentsply Maillefer, Ballaigues, Switzerland) and One Shape (Micromega, Besancon, France).

A Novel Treatment for Propagated Crown Fractures
A major complication after endodontic treatment is persistent pain on biting or chewing. Although unsuccessful endodontic treatment can account for such pain, pain to chewing and biting can also be a result of an unsupported or propagated crown fracture. Crown fractures that extend apically result in deterioration of the localized periodontium and ultimate loss of the tooth. To date, no predictable treatment for apically extending crown fractures exists. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Activates Caspase-1 Leading to Increased Interleukin-1 Beta Secretion in Macrophages
Recent studies of inflammasome activation have focused on the pathogenesis of diverse inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Inflammasome activation results in caspase-1 activation, which is required for processing of prointerleukin (IL)-1 beta to its secreted form as well as a proinflammatory cell death (ie, pyroptosis). The purpose of this study was to analyze whether Enterococcus faecalis associated with endodontic infection induces inflammasome activation. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Unusual Morphology of Permanent Tooth Related to Traumatic Injury: A Case Report
Root duplication, or multiple roots, is a very rare anatomy of the maxillary central incisor. This case report describes a permanent central incisor having 2 distinct roots as an assumed sequela of the avulsion and replantation of a primary incisor. The permanent successor might have had a disturbance of development because of the traumatic injury and discontinuity in the treatment after replantation. Conventional endodontic treatment followed by esthetic restoration was performed on the tooth. Clinicians should consider the potential prognoses and complications of traumatic injuries to primary teeth. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Periapical Status of Non–root-filled Teeth with Resin Composite, Amalgam, or Full Crown Restorations: A Cross-sectional Study of a Swedish Adult Population
Experimental studies show that dental pulp cells respond unfavorably to contact with resin composite restorative material. Hypothetically, in a random population, the frequency of apical periodontitis should be higher for teeth restored with resin composite than with amalgam. Therefore, the aim was to compare the periapical status of non–root-filled teeth restored with resin composite, amalgam, or laboratory-fabricated crowns in an adult Swedish population.
