Dental Operating Microscopes in Endodontics

Surgical and non-surgical endodontics has been completely transformed by the use of illuminated dental microscopes in clinical procedures. For many years, surgical burs and amalgam for root-end fillings were the standard of care. Now with the incorporation of the operating microscope, and also the endoscope, along with the use of ultrasonic tips and biocompatible [...]

Which Dental Materials Conflict with the Use of MRI?

A growing body of research has demonstrated the potential for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in clinical dentistry, including endodontics, prosthodontics, and orthodontics. Yet there has been little analysis of how dental materials in a patient's mouth may affect the end result, according to a new study in Dentomaxillofacial Radiology. Contradictory results have been reported [...]

Bioengineers Find Novel Strategy for Pulp Regeneration

A recent study in the journal Scientific Reports describes a novel strategy proposed for endodontic pulp regeneration, which builds on previous research on larger vascular structures, to fabricate artificial capillaries for adaptation to endodontic dental procedures. Bioengineer researchers at the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), inspired by advances in 3D technology, developed a [...]
