Study of the apices of human permanent teeth with the use of a scanning electron microscope.
TLDR
The distal roots of mandibular molars had the largest size main foramen, whereas the maxillary premolarsHad the largest accessory foramina and the most complicated apical morphologic makeup. Expand
Pain after chemomechanical preparation.
TLDR
Statistical analysis showed a significantly higher incidence of pain after over-instrumentation of canals during preparation. Expand
Frequency and distribution of root filled teeth and apical periodontitis in a Greek population.
TLDR
The prevalence of AP and the frequency of root filled teeth with AP in this Greek population were higher than those found in many other European countries. Expand
Influence of specialty training and experience on endodontic decision making.
TLDR
Differences in specialty training and experience strongly influence endodontic decision making among dentists with different levels of training. Expand
In vitro study of the indirect action of calcium hydroxide on the anaerobic flora of the root canal.
TLDR
It is suggested that the ability of calcium hydroxide to absorb carbon dioxide may contribute to its antibacterial activity, and the number of bacteria recovered from the control group was significantly lower than that of the experimental group, but no particular resistance of any bacterial species to calcium hyd oxide could be detected. Expand
Evaluation of the antimicrobial effectiveness of citric acid and sodium hypochlorite on the anaerobic flora of the infected root canal.
TLDR
Testing revealed that citric acid does demonstrate antimicrobial properties against anaerobic bacteria, especially against cocci, but it is less effective than 2.5% sodium hypochlorite. Expand
In vitro evaluation of the effectiveness of calcium hydroxide and paramonochlorophenol on anaerobic bacteria from the root canal.
TLDR
Calcium hydroxide was proved to be quickly and highly effective against some microorganisms related to severe clinical symptoms, such as B. melaninogenicus and P. gingivalis, as well as against actinomyces species. Expand
Effect of thickness on the sealing ability of some root canal sealers.
TLDR
It is indicated that the thickness of the sealer layer significantly influences the sealing of a root canal filling and that the influence of thickness varies depending on the type of sealer. Expand
Dye penetration in dry and water-filled gaps along root fillings.
TLDR
Methylene blue penetrates along root fillings more easily in dry gaps than in water-filled gaps, and group III (with dry gaps) showed significantly more dye penetration than group II. Expand
Periapical status and quality of root canal fillings and coronal restorations in a Greek population.
TLDR
Quality of root canal treatment, as well as quality of coronal restoration, are strongly associated with the incidence of apical periodontitis. Expand
