Application of biosynthesized silver nanoparticles to eradicate Enterococcus faecali from infected root canals — a review

Drs. Rahul Halkai, Kiran Halkai, and C. Jyothi investigate a common microorganism associated with endodontic persistence and reinfection Abstract  Enterococcus faecalis (e faecalis) is a common microorganism associated with endodontic persistence and reinfections. It is one of the most resistant microbes and poses a severe challenge for its eradication during endodontic treatment. Antimicrobial agents in …

Nonsurgical endodontic treatment of a maxillary central incisor diagnosed with infected dens invaginatus (Oehlers’ Type III) and apical periodontitis

Drs. Jorge Vieyra and Fabian Acosta present a case report that describes the diagnosis and conservative treatment of a unilateral case of a maxillary central incisor with an infected Type III dens invaginatus and an associated periradicular lesion Dens invaginatus (DI) is a growth-related malformation resulting from invagination of the crown before calcification has developed …

The cortical window – part 1

Drs. Naheed Mohamed, Yosi Nahmias, and Ken Serota discuss the evolution of endodontic surgery in the first of this 2-part article Nonsurgical endodontic therapy requires access preparations that uncover entrances to the labyrinthine tunnels of the root canal system. The era of bio-minimalism has altered the traditional configuration of endo-dontic access cavities. These bio-minimalistic trends …
