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 [...]

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 [...]

Myths About Antibiotic Use in Endodontics

The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) cites ever-increasing evidence from current literature of antibiotic resistance in endodontic infections. According to recent studies, a generalized 44-fold increase in the prevalence of MRSA strains and a six-fold increase in the number of strains resistant to multiple antibiotics have prompted dental providers to examine some long-held traditions [...]
