Separation is a potential risk when using any instrument in the root canal system. Presently, there are no large clinical studies investigating the separation incidence of the ProTaper rotary file system or the number of times a ProTaper rotary file can be safely used. The purpose of this study was to determine if the number of uses affects the separation(More)
An examination of 1873 conventionally treated and retreated maxillary first and second molars was made in an attempt to determine the percentage of second mesiobuccal (MB2) canals that could be located routinely and evaluate if there were any significant differences between initial treatments and retreatments. The teeth examined were 1193 first molars and(More)
An examination of 5616 endodontically treated and retreated maxillary first and second molars was made in an attempt to determine the percentage of MB2 canals that could be located routinely, and evaluate if there were any significant differences between initial treatments and retreatments. The teeth examined were 3578 first molars and 2038 second molars(More)
This study investigated the seal created by cold burnishing the gutta-percha exposed after apical root resection of endodontically treated teeth. Sixty single-rooted extracted human teeth with a single straight canal were divided into four experimental groups of 15 teeth each. In two of the experimental groups the canals were instrumented and obturated well(More)
Die biomechanisch und anatomisch korrekte Plazierung des Transplantats ist Grundlage für den Operationserfolg in der vorderen Kreuzbandchirurgie. Eine anatomiegerechte Fixierung am anatomischen Ursprung und Ansatzes des vorderen Kreuzbands konnte aber bisher von keiner Operationstechnik realisiert werden. Grundprinzip aller Ersatzoperationen des vorderen(More)
