The composition of the microflora of root canals differs in primary endodontic treatment and retreatment cases. Persistent disease in the periapical region after root canal treatment presents a more complex situation as it was thought earlier. Scientific evidence indicates that unsatisfactory outcome of cases… CONTINUE READING
