BACKGROUND The decision between pulp capping and root canal therapy after pulp exposure is a clinical issue. The aim of the authors' study was to evaluate the outcome of direct pulp-capping procedures performed by dental students. METHODS The authors followed the treatment outcomes of 193 patients with 204 pulp exposures with direct pulp capping. They(More)
The objective of this study was to assess and compare canal blockages and apical extrusion of dentin debris during canal shaping with eight preparation techniques. A total of 208 canals in extracted human teeth were prepared by one operator using one type of file. The techniques included were standardized, stepback with reaming, stepback with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and distribution of apical periodontitis and endodontic treatment in a Jordanian subpopulation. STUDY DESIGN Digital panoramic radiographs of 294 patients who were assessed at Caritas Association between January and September 2008 were evaluated. The coronal and periapical status of all(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the compliance of general dental practitioners (GDPs) in the private sector in North Jordan with infection control measures. A pilot-tested questionnaire about infection control measures was distributed in March 2004 to 120 private practices. The response rate was 91.66 percent. About 77 percent of dentists usually ask(More)
CASE REPORT Talon cusp is an uncommon dental anomaly manifested as an accessory cusp-like structure on the crown of anterior teeth. This report describes two unusual cases of talon cusp. Case 1 showed bilateral anomalous cusps on the palatal aspects of maxillary supernumerary teeth, causing premature contact and tooth impaction. In case 2, a double-fused(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the shaping ability of ProFile 0.04 taper rotary nickel-titanium instruments with ISO sized tips in simulated canals. A total of 40 simulated root canal made up of four different shapes in terms of angle and position of curvature were prepared by ProFile instruments using the 'crown down' approach recommended by the(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the shaping ability of two stainless steel files using simulated canals. A total of 80 simulated canals of various angles and positions of curvature were prepared by hand using either Mani K-Files or Micro Mega K-Files. Following orifice enlargement each file type was used to prepare 40 canals employing a linear filing(More)
A total of 300 simulated root canals of various angles and positions of curvature in clear resin blocks were prepared by hand using either K-files, K-Flex files, Flexofiles, Flex-R files, Hedstrom files or Unifiles. Each file type was used to prepare 50 canals employing a linear filing motion and an anticurvature stepback technique. Part 1 of this two-part(More)
