ABSTRACT

Aim: To examine the root canal morphology of mandibular second molars in a South Indian population, using spiral computed tomography (CT).

Materials and methods: One hundred ten extracted mandibular second molars were scanned by spiral CT scanner and analyzed for number of roots, number of root canals per root and root canal configuration in each root.

Results: The total of 91.91% of the molars had two roots and 4.55% were three rooted. Single roots were also found (5.45%) and occurrence of four roots was rare (0.91%). Three root canals were found in 62.73% of the teeth, followed by two canals in 20.02%. C-shaped canals were seen in 4.55% of teeth.

Conclusion: In the teeth examined, there was a predominance of two roots and three canals. Type IV canal configuration was common in mesial roots and Type I in distal roots. Three roots and C-shaped canals were also recorded.

Keywords: C-shaped canal, Mandibular second molar, Spiral computed tomography, Vertucci’s classification.

ABSTRACT

Taurodontism is a dental anomaly in which the involved tooth has an enlarged and elongated pulp chamber with short roots. Endodontic treatment of a taurodont tooth presents challenges to a clinician for visibility, cleaning and shaping as well as obturation of the root canals. In this case report, a 16-year-old female patient presented with spontaneous pain in relation to mandibular right second molar. On radiographic examination, the tooth had a carious lesion extending to the pulp chamber which was large and elongated with apically located furcation and two short roots. The taurodontic index (TI) for this particular tooth was 34.2, corresponding to mesotaurodontism. Endodontic treatment was successfully completed using lateral condensation technique and postendodontic restoration given.

Keywords: Bull teeth, Enlarged pulp chamber, Mesotaurodontism, Taurodontism.

ABSTRACT

Probiotics have been recently introduced in dentistry and is one of the newer approaches in caries management. They have been used successfully for several years mainly for gastrointestinal disorders. Most probiotic strains belong to Lactobacilli or bifidobacteria group. Mechanism of action of probiotics is mainly unknown but may include intermicrobial species interactions and immunostimulatory effects. Randomized controlled trials have shown the inhibitory effect of probiotics against caries. Even though direct recommendations for the use of probiotics cannot yet be given, scientific evidence so far indicates that probiotic therapy may be a reality in dentistry in the future.

Keywords: Bifidobacterium, Dental caries, Lactobacillus, Probiotics.

ABSTRACT

Traumatic injuries of the teeth and their structures are complex and require comprehensive examination, accurate diagnosis, consideration of various factors involved and a multidisciplinary approach for successful treatment outcome. Dental trauma, in which the fracture line originates in the crown portion of the tooth, extends apically into the root in an oblique direction is referred to as a crown-root fracture. Subgingival fracture of a tooth presents a challenging restorative problem and needs efficient assessment for treatment. A fractured tooth presents a multifaceted problem which warrants a multidisciplinary treatment. A fractured tooth presents a multifaceted problem which warrants a multidisciplinary treatment. Interdisciplinary treatment approach holds true especially in multifaceted problems like traumatic tooth fracture. Every dental professional must be prepared to assess and treat efficiently.

Keywords: Computed crown-root fracture, Dental traumatic injuries, Orthodontic extrusion, Subgingival fracture management.

ABSTRACT

In the modern era where the buzz word is “publish or perish,” numerous articles suspicious of misconduct are observed. People often do this out of sheer ignorance of its consequences or to get speedier publication, which lead to both career progression and fame. It is essential that one should be aware of the after-effects of “cut/copy and paste” from another source without giving due credit to the original work, lack of which can lead to serious consequences. This two-part article is intended to make the scientific dental community aware of various forms of misconduct observed as far as scientific publishing is concerned. This also outlines the measures observed so that the amount of plagiarism or misconduct can be minimized or prevented

ABSTRACT

Trauma to the tooth mainly results in pulpal injury, and these injuries during formative stage can result in incomplete root formation. This can result in failure in closure of root apex, resulting in wide open apex. This causes problem for the conventional root canal therapy as there is no apical stop against which the obturation material can be condensed. The management of a nonvital tooth with open apex is aimed at creation of an apical barrier. The newly introduced bioactive dentin substitute commercially available as biodentin is a promising material. It is a cement for stimulating hard tissue formation, i.e., the formation of reactive or reparative (tertiary) dentin. This case report describes the management of a traumatized permanent maxillary central incisor with an open apex.

Keywords: Apexification, Apical barrier, Biodentin, Open apex.

ABSTRACT

Radicular cysts are the most common cystic lesions affecting the jaws. They arise from the epithelial remnants in the periodontal ligament as a result of the stimulus from periapical infection following pulpal necrosis. Treatment options to manage large periapical lesions range from nonsurgical root canal treatment or apical surgery to extraction. New approaches involve the use of local drug delivery systems based on microparticles/ nanoparticles made from biocompatible polymers along with surgical intervention. Such devices enable the introduction of antimicrobial agents or other drugs directly in the periradicular area or inside the root canal, and the prolonged release of constant concentrations of these agents for fast and better healing. The present case report illustrates the combined endodontic and surgical management of a large periapical cyst with local drug delivery as an adjunct.

Keywords: Biodentin, Hydroxyapatite, Local drug delivery, Periapical cyst.

8.  CASE REPORT
Management of an Anterior Tooth with External and Internal Resorption

ABSTRACT

Tooth resorption is a condition associated with either a physiologic or a pathologic process resulting in a loss of dentin, cementum, and/or bone. Inflammatory process is initiated when the predentin or precemental layer of the tooth is damaged. Resorption can either be external or internal in form. In order to control the tooth resorption, it is necessary to treat the root canal by removing all the pulp tissue. Due to varied root canal morphology, root canal treatment poses a challenge for the clinician. In such cases a combination of conventional lateral compaction and thermoplasticized gutta percha can enable the three-dimensional obturation of the canal space. This case report describes a nonsurgical mode of management of a tooth having internal and external (surface) resorption.

Keywords: External, Gutta percha, Internal, Resorption, Thermoplasticized.

ABSTRACT

Resorption is a pathologic process that always confuses the dentists with its varied etiologic factors and clinical presentations. Resorption can be classified into internal and external. Internal resorption lesions are notoriously difficult to manage because of their irregular and aberrant root canal anatomy. Immature apexes also possess a similar clinical challenge because of the absence of an apical stop. This article describes the nonsurgical management of a central incisor with severe internal resorption and an immature apex utilizing single-step mineral trioxide aggregate apexification along with injectable gutta-percha obturation.

Keywords: Calcium hydroxide, Injectable gutta-percha obturation, Internal root resorption, Mineral trioxide aggregate, Open apex.
