Patient and Clinical Characteristics Associated with Primary Healing of Iatrogenic Perforations after Root Canal Treatment: Results of a Long-term Italian Study
There are few data on the long-term efficacy of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) in treating root canal perforations. We investigated the extent of primary healing after perforation repair with MTA and non-healing as a result of repair. We also investigated patient/clinical characteristics affecting treatment outcomes and long-term prognosis. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

A Prospective Clinical Pilot Study on the Level of Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 in Dental Pulpal Blood as a Marker for the State of Inflammation in the Pulp Tissue
Differentiation between reversible pulpitis (savable pulp) and irreversible inflammation of the pulp tissue (nonsavable pulp) based only on clinical and radiographic diagnoses has proven to be difficult. Pulp exposure allows for the collection of pulpal blood to quantitatively determine the level of inflammation markers or proteolytic enzymes, even with small samples. Pulpitis is associated with the invasion of neutrophil granulocytes and their release of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9). (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Evaluation of New Cone-beam Computed Tomographic Criteria for Radiographic Healing Evaluation after Apical Surgery: Assessment of Repeatability and Reproducibility
Conventional 2-dimensional radiography uses defined criteria for outcome assessment of apical surgery. However, these radiographic healing criteria are not applicable for 3-dimensional radiography. The present study evaluated the repeatability and reproducibility of new cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT)-based healing criteria for the judgment of periapical healing 1 year after apical surgery.

Nonsurgical Endodontic Management of a Molar-Incisor Malformation-affected Mandibular First Molar: A Case Report
A molar-incisor malformation (MIM) is a newly reported type of dental anomaly that involves a characteristic root malformation in permanent first molars and deciduous second molars and a crown defect in permanent central incisors. This case report describes a nonsurgical root canal treatment of a MIM-affected molar by aid of a reformatted axial view of the tooth cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). A MIM-affected molar has calcified canal orifices and a few immature accessory furcal canals. Conventional root canal treatment with the aid of CBCT followed by resin restoration was performed on the tooth. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)

Role of Cone-beam Computed Tomography in Diagnosis of Vertical Root Fractures: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
The detection of vertical root fractures (VRFs) is a significant challenge for clinicians. Cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging has been used recently in this field with high accuracy and sensitivity. Research results about its superiority over periapical radiographs (PRs) are mixed and inconclusive. The aim of this review and meta-analysis was to provide evidence about the accuracy of CBCT imaging in diagnosing VRFs in human teeth with and without endodontic treatment compared with conventional/digital radiography and to establish optimal imaging parameters for accurate VRF detection using CBCT imaging through a ...

Cone-beam Computed Tomography for Detecting Vertical Root Fractures in Endodontically Treated Teeth: A Systematic Review
A vertical root fracture (VRF), commonly found in teeth with endodontic treatment, is challenging to diagnose and has poor treatment outcomes. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become an increasingly popular imaging modality in endodontics, but image artifacts arising from root-filling materials may hinder VRF detection. The aim of this investigation was to conduct a systematic review to assess the diagnostic ability of CBCT for detecting VRFs in endodontically treated teeth. (Source: Journal of Endodontics)
