Endodontic Case Assessment

Advances in the understanding of endodontic pathosis, aseptic technique, and principles of canal preparation and obturation have led to significantly increased and predictable healing rates for endodontic treatment—95% and higher under ideal conditions (Salehrabi R, Rotstein I. J Endod. 2004 Dec;30(12):846-50). However, the treatment must be delivered in a predictable manner by the treating practitioner to optimize the healing potential.

The AAE has developed practical tools to help every dentist overcome case assessment pitfalls:

CASE STUDY

SIGNS OF HEALING VISUALIZED WITHIN 6 MONTHS: A SINGLE-VISIT ENDODONTIC TREATMENT

Outcomes: A mandibular right first molar with a large carious lesion on the disto-occlusal surface was treated with the GentleWave System. Signs of healing were observed within three months after the initial root canal treatment.

RESEARCH

EVALUATION OF DISINFECTION USING THE GENTLEWAVE® SYSTEM IN MOLARS

Conclusions: The GentleWave System substantially removes biofilm from the root canal system when compared to contemporary techniques.

CASE STUDY

PRACTICING MINIMAL ENDODONTICS

A mandibular right second molar with a large carious lesion invading the pulpal space was treated with the GentleWave System. The entire root canal system including the lateral canal was cleaned and obturated.
