Success rate of endodontic treatment of teeth with vital and nonvital pulps. A meta-analysis.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use meta-analysis statistics to determine the influence of factors such as apical limit (short vs. overextension), status of the pulp (vital vs. nonvital),Expand

A survey of the incidence of single-visit endodontics.
This survey was conducted to obtain answers to some basic questions regarding the timing of root canal obturation. A questionnaire was sent via e-mail to 738 randomly chosen United StatesExpand

Age-dependent decline in dental pulp regeneration after pulpectomy in dogs
The age-associated decline in the regenerative abilities of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may be due to age-related changes in reduction in number, intrinsic properties of MSCs and extrinsic factorsExpand

Aetiology, incidence and morphology of the C-shaped root canal system and its impact on clinical endodontics
The C-shaped root canal constitutes an unusual root morphology that can be found primarily in mandibular second permanent molars. Due to the complexity of their structure, C-shaped root canal systemsExpand

Effectiveness of dental computed tomography in diagnostic imaging of periradicular lesion of each root of a multirooted tooth: a case report.
Radiography by use of the three-dimensional (3D) Accuitomo XYZ Slice View Tomograph (3DX), a device for compact computed tomography in dentistry, was performed as a new diagnostic imaging techniqueExpand

A deep-learning artificial intelligence system for assessment of root morphology of the mandibular first molar on panoramic radiography.
OBJECTIVES: The distal root of the mandibular first molar occasionally has an extra root, which can directly affect the outcome of endodontic therapy. In this study, we examined the diagnosticExpand

The use of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor induced mobilization for isolation of dental pulp stem cells with high regenerative potential.
Human dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) contain subsets of progenitor/stem cells with high angiogenic, neurogenic and regenerative potential useful for cell therapy. It is essential to develop a safeExpand

Α2 integrin, extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer, and matrix metalloproteinase-3 act sequentially to induce differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells into odontoblast-like cells.
We previously reported that interleukin 1β acts via matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-3 to regulate cell proliferation and suppress apoptosis in α2 integrin-positive odontoblast-like cellsExpand

Evaluation of correspondence of dental Computed Tomography imaging to anatomic observation of external root resorption.
Radiography using a compact dental CT, the 3D Accuitomo XYZ Slice View Tomograph (3D Accuitomo), was performed for examining the root resorption of a mandibular premolar in a patient who neededExpand

Expression of MMP-8 and MMP-13 in the development of periradicular lesions.
AIM To elucidate the expressions of MMP-8 and MMP-13 in experimentally induced rat periradicular lesions by means of the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) andExpand
