» Radiographic evaluation of cases referred for surgical endodontics
By JofER editor | Published 05/27/2002 | Endodontic Articles 6 | Unrated

The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that more patients with failed root-canal treatment or other endodontic problems are referred for periradicular surgery rather than nonsurgical re-treatment.


  1. Under the conditions of this retrospective study, far more cases were referred for surgical re-treatment than was considered strictly necessary from a technical point of view.
  2. Signi¢cant interobserver di!erences occurred when judging teeth amenable to conventional re-treatment between the oral surgeon and both the endodontist and general practitioner.
  3. More cases were considered amenable to conventional re-treatment from the patients referred to an oral surgery department in the northern part of the country than in the western part.
» Stainless steel bands in endodontics: effects on cuspal flexure and fracture resistance

This study investigated the effect of stainless steel bands on cuspal flexure and fracture resistance of extracted maxillary premolars.

The study showed that stainless steel bands used in endodontics reduce the cuspal flexure of maxillary premolars and increase their fracture resistance.

» Incompletely fractured teeth associated with diffuse longstanding orofacial pain: diagnosis and treatment outcome
By JofER editor | Published 05/19/2002 | Endodontic Articles 6 | Unrated

To evaluate the diagnostic value of different clinical findings, and analyse the symptoms experienced from teeth with incomplete dentinal fractures in patients with diffuse orofacial pain. Secondly, to present the outcome of different treatment modalities in these patients.

This study shows that the diagnosis of the incompletely fractured teeth in patients with longstanding diffuse orofacial pain symptoms are time consuming and represent a diagnostic problem. With appropriate endodontic and/or restorative treatment, symptoms were relieved in the majority of cases.

» Papilla base incision: a new approach to recession-free healing of the interdental papilla after endodontic surgery
By JofER editor | Published 05/18/2002 | Endodontic Articles 6 | Unrated

P. Velvart
Clinic for Periodontology, Endodontology and Cariology, University of Basel, Switzerland.

The purpose of the present study was to describe and evaluate a new incision technique: the papilla base incision.

In patients with healthy marginal periodontal conditions the papilla base incision allows rapid and predictable recession-free healing following marginal surgical exposure of the soft tissues. One month postoperatively the majority of the incisions were completely or partially invisible. Long-term healing will be studied.

» Electronic determination of root canal length in primary teeth with and without root resorption

To test an electrical device for determining root canal length in primary teeth in vitro, and to compare it with the radiographic length measurement.

The presence of resorption in primary teeth did not affect the accuracy of electrical measurement of root canal length in vitro. The application of this method in primary teeth should be evaluated further.
