An Evidence-Based Endodontic Implant Algorithm: Untying the Gordian Knot; Part I
Over the years, endodontics has diminished itself by enabling the presumption that it is comprised of a narrowly defined service mix; root canal therapy purportedly begins at the apex and ends at the orifice.

Evolution and Integration of Current Restorative Endodontic Concepts

Evolution and Integration of Current Restorative Endodontic Concepts
The restoration of endodontically treated teeth was advocated by G.V. Black in 1869 followed by a one-unit post and crown by Richmond in 1878. Engineering principles indicate that structural strength on endodontically treated teeth is decreased by the removal of the roof of the pulp chamber, canal enlargement, and hence loss of integrity. The intrinsic strength of dentin can be diminished as a result of root canal treatment originated by decay, pathology, or trauma. When endodontic treatment is indicated,…

CBCT in Endodontics: Changing the Landscape of Diagnosis and Clinical Treatment
Radiographic imaging is essential in the diagnosis, treatment planning and follow-up in endodontics. The interpretation of an image can be confounded by a number of factors, including the regional anatomy as well as superimposition of both the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. As a result of superimposition, periapical radiographs reveal only limited aspects, a 2-dimensional view, of the true three dimensional anatomy. Additionally, there is often geometric distortion of the anatomical structures being imaged with conventional radiographic methods. These problems can be overcome by utilizing small or limited volume cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging techniques which produce accurate 3-dimensional images of the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. This presentation will highlight the indications, advantages and considerations of the use of CBCT in endodontics.
