What are the basic principles of endodontics?
The basic principles on which successful endodontic therapy depends have been commonly accepted as (1) debridement, (2) sterilization and (3) obturation. Each of these principles is subjected to critical evaluation. Because of the morphological complexity of most root canals complete debridement is not possible.
What is coronal leakage?
Coronal leakage is the phenomenon where oral debris and bacteria seep from the patient’s mouth, past an endodontically treated tooth’s dental restoration, and ultimately penetrate into and recontaminates its interior root canal space.
Do endodontists do more than root canals?
While general dentists and endodontists can both perform root canal treatment, endodontists perform this procedure much more often. This higher volume and additional training translates to endodontists’ higher level of expertise in performing root canal treatment.
How do you clean pulp chamber after obturation?
Cleaning the pulp chamber after obturation by cotton pellet soaked with absolute alcohol is essential. Presence of sealers in pulp chamber together with a defective or metallic restoration, worsen the condition as combined etiologic factor.
How long can gutta percha be exposed?
What happens when a temporary crown is lost, exposing a 5mm seal of gutta percha to the hostile elements of the oral cavity? Studies have shown that bacteria can contaminate a whole root canal system in 20 to 60 days.
How often do apicoectomies fail?
Apicoectomy success rate Apicoectomies are considered routine outpatient dental procedures. A 2020 study found that about 97 percent of cases still experienced excellent results following apical surgery up to 5 years later, and good results in more than 75 percent of cases after 10 to 13 years.

The editorial board will identify significant topics and outstanding scientists and clinicians for the individual monographs. Endodontic Topics serves as a valuable supplement to existing endodontic journals.
How often will we cover the scope of Endodontics?
We will cover the scope of endodontics every five years and then start the process again. Endodontic Topics comprises a series of monographs intended for endodontists and general practitioners with interest in endodontics. The editorial board will identify significant topics and outstanding scientists and clinicians for the individual monographs.
Do you want to thank the editors of endodontic topics?
We want to thank all editors, authors and readers for their support of the journal. Read Professor Haapassalo’s Farewell to Endodontic Topics here. Level of evidence in endodontics: what does it mean?
Does the root canal filling itself matter for endodontic success?
Contemporary research points to infection control as the key determinant of endodontic success. While epidemiological surveys indicate that success is most likely in teeth which have been densely root-filled to within 2 mm of root-end, it is unclear whether the root canal filling itself is a key determinant of outcome.
