Dr. L. Stephen Buchanan discusses a new concept in endodontic irrigation Endodontic irrigation is the most important part of root canal therapy (RCT), but I confess it has never been the most interesting part of the process for me because there is so little to see going on during irrigation. All the other aspects of …Read CE Article

Drs. Brett E. Gilbert and Richard Mounce discuss techniques and materials that lead to effective endodontic treatment This article was written to demonstrate that the application of proven literature and/or evidence-based endodontic principles leads to excellent clinical results, irrespective of the materials used. We will describe the key points to achieving excellent results in initial …Read CE Article
Drs. David Keinan, Aviv Shmuel, Shlomi Ritz, and Iris Slutzky-Goldberg study the effects of the presence of chloroform in the canal during retreatment Abstract Objectives The aim of the study was to evaluate the accuracy of the Apex NRGXFR and Apit 11 electronic apex locators (EALs) in the presence of chloroform during endodontic retreatment ex …Read CE Article
Dr. Gregori M. Kurtzman continues his discussion of coronal leakage prevention Introduction As discussed in part 1, coronal leakage is a frequent cause of endodontic failure related to salivary bacteria percolating between the coronal aspect of the tooth, down the obturated canals to lead to apical reinfection. This can be prevented by how the tooth …Read CE Article

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) of the region revealed a middle mesial canal (MMC) in tooth LR6, and a middle distal canal …Read CE Article
Dr. Gregori M. Kurtzman discusses a major determinant of endodontic success or failure Introduction Coronal leakage within the canal system following obturation has been associated with endodontic failure. The literature suggests this is more likely a determinant of clinical success or failure then apical leakage.1-3 Recent advances in obturation materials have shown to provide superior …Read CE Article
