Challenges in regenerative endodontics: a case series.
INTRODUCTION An immature tooth with pulpal necrosis and apical periodontitis presents a unique challenge to the endodontist. Endodontic treatment options consist of apexification, apical barriers, orExpand

A comparison of the pro-inflammatory, NF-kappaB-dependent cytokines: TNF-alpha, IL-1-alpha, IL-6, and IL-8 in different oral fluids from oral lichen planus patients.
To explore the feasibility of detection of the level of NF-kappaB-dependent cytokines in oral fluids from patient with oral lichen planus (OLP) for clinical application, 13 OLP subjects were enrolledExpand

Factors affecting outcomes for single-tooth implants and endodontic restorations.
Initial root canal therapy and implant placement are both common treatment modalities, and, as such, prognostic factors that influence the treatment outcomes of these two restorations should beExpand

Dimension, anatomy and morphology of the mesiobuccal root canal system in maxillary molars.
INTRODUCTION To increase our understanding of the root canal system, we examined the mesiobuccal (MB) roots of maxillary first and second molars, which are considered to be one of the most complexExpand

Evaluation of pretreatment analgesia and endodontic treatment for postoperative endodontic pain.
This study compares single-dose ibuprofen pretreatment for postoperative endodontic pain. Thirty-nine emergent patients were randomly assigned to 3 groups: placebo, ibuprofen tablets, or ibuprofenExpand

Proximity of the mandibular canal to the tooth apex.
INTRODUCTION Knowledge of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) position is important in avoiding nerve damage during invasive dental procedures. Because the exact position of the nerve bundle can varyExpand

An anatomic investigation of the mandibular first molar using micro-computed tomography.
INTRODUCTION The mandibular first molar is the most frequently endodontically treated tooth and is extremely anatomically challenging. The purpose of this micro-computed tomographic evaluation was toExpand

Measurements of diffusive sublayer thicknesses in the ocean by alabaster dissolution, and their implications for the measurements of benthic fluxes
Fluxes of reactive chemical species across the sediment-water interface can profoundly influence the dominant biogeochemical cycles in the worlds ocean. However, reliable in-situ measurements ofExpand

Proinflammatory cytokine levels in saliva before and after treatment of (erosive) oral lichen planus with dexamethasone.
OBJECTIVE To explore the potential of detecting the level of proinflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-1-alpha (IL-1-alpha), IL-6, and IL-8 in whole unstimulatedExpand

Retrospective cross sectional comparison of initial nonsurgical endodontic treatment and single-tooth implants.
Initial root canal treatment and the replacement of a single tooth with implants are both viable treatment options, but various success rates have been reported for each treatment modality. ThisExpand
