Retreatment

Damage to root dentin during retreatment procedures.

Purpose: to assess the influence of retreatment procedure on the appearance of defects on the root canal walls Materials and Methods: •N = 200 extracted mandibular premolars were standardized. •4 groups (n= 50, average diameter was 0.7 mm) •Teeth were examined to exclude presence of cracks. •Group (1): left unprepared. Group (2-4): C/S with ProTaper …

Analysis of temperature rise and the use of coolants in the dissipation of ultrasonic heat buildup during post removal.

Summary:  Purpose:  to calculate probabilities for tissue injury and to measure effective- ness of various coolant strategies in countering heat buildup produced by dry ultrasonic vibration during post removal. N= 10 single canal (premolars or canines). Materials & Methods: All teeth were standardized; access, C/S, and obturation. Post spaces were prepared 10 mm in depth …

Effect of ultrasonic vibration and various sealers and cement combinations on titanium post removal

Purpose: To determine: (i) whether ultrasonic vibration reduces the amount of tensile force required to remove a prefabricated titanium post luted with a resin cement; and (ii) whether obturation with gutta-percha and a eugenol sealer compromises the retention of cemented posts, compared with teeth obturated with gutta-percha and a eugenol-free sealer control. •Materials/Methods: •N= 96 …
