To investigate the cytotoxicity of five different dentine-bonding agents on human pulp cells in vitro.

The influence of the cytotoxicity depended on the materials tested. Dentine-bonding agents have significant potential for pulpal toxicity.

To study the presence, levels and molecular forms of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) -8 (collagenase- 2) in pulpal and periapical in£ammation, and the changes in MMP-8 levels in root-canal exudates during root-canal treatment.

The findings demonstrate the presence of MMP-8 in the inflamed pulp and periapical tissue, indicating that MMP-8 has a role in pulpal and periapical inflammation, most likely participating in tissue extracellular matrix degradation. They further indicate that MMP analysis from periapical exudate could be used to indicate and monitor inflammatory activity and the
success of treatment in teeth with periapical lesions.

This paper has described supplementary techniques available to provide pulpal anaesthesia. The methods described are useful when conventional techniques fail as all have been shown to increase the incidence of pulpal anaesthesia when used in combination with standard techniques. Knowledge of the various methods is useful as these techniques might be required to provide pain control for teeth that prove difficult to anaesthetize by the operator’s normal route.
» Densinvaginatus type III: report of a case and 10-year radiographic follow-up

The purpose of this article is to report the 10-year follow-up of a right mandibular central incisor with ‘dens invaginatus’ that was root filled.

Key learning points.
  • Both clinical and radiographic examinations are necessary to determine morphological features of teeth before root-canal treatment.
  • Sensibility testing to determine the pulp condition is critical prior to treatment.
» Effect of sterilization on the cutting efficiency of PVD-coated nickel-titanium endodontic instruments

To investigate alterations in cutting efficiency when conventional and titanium nitride (TiN) coated nickel-titanium (NiTi) K-files were exposed to repeated sterilization using an autoclave.

Within the limitation of this in vitro study, repeated cycles of sterilization under autoclave or exposure to NaOCl prior to repeated sterilization did not alter the cutting efficiency of TiN-coated NiTi instruments. On the contrary, sterilized uncoated files showed a significant loss of cutting efficiency in comparison with instruments that were not sterilized.
