AIM: To evaluate the delivery of undergraduate endodontic education in UK dental schools using an online survey and to compare the results with those of a previous paper-based survey (Qualtrough & Dummer 1997). Aspects of delivery were also evaluated in comparison with Undergraduate Curriculum Guidelines of the European Society of Endodontology (de Moor et al. 2013). METHODS: An online version of an earlier paper-based survey on undergraduate Endodontic education (Qualtrough & Dummer 1997) was created...

AIM: To evaluate the effects of hydrophilic dental resin monomers, triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA) and hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), on the polarization of a human monocyte cell line (THP-1). METHODOLOGY: THP-1 cells were treated with resin monomers at non-cytotoxic concentrations for 48 h and were analyzed for CD86 and CD206 expressions using flow cytometry. The cells were stimulated for polarization in the presence of resin monomers (co-treatment), or after treatment with monomers (pre-treatment)...

Randomized clinical trials are acknowledged as the most appropriate methodology for demonstrating the efficacy or effectiveness of one intervention as opposed to another and thus play a major role in clinical decision making. However, it is recognized that despite the existence of various guidelines, for example, the Consolidated Standards for Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement, the quality of manuscripts describing randomised trials is often suboptimal. The current project aims to develop and disseminate new guidelines, Preferred Reporting Items for RAndomized Trials in Endodontics (PRIRATE), to improve the planning and reporting quality of randomized trials in the field of Endodontics...

AIM: To investigate the reliability of using bovine teeth as an alternative to human teeth in an intra-tooth push-out model by comparing the bond strength of three root canal sealers in both tooth substrates. METHODOLOGY: From human and bovine incisors (12 per group), one 1-mm disc was obtained from each root. On each disc, three standard 0.8mm-diameter holes were drilled through the dentine. After irrigation, the holes were filled with one of the three tested root canal sealers: AH Plus, MTA Fillapex or Total Fill BC Sealer...

Endodontic medicine has gained more attention and is becoming a more important issue in Endodontics. As an example, more than one hundred articles on this topic have been published in the last eight years. Several of these studies have found an association between endodontic variables, i.e. the prevalence of apical periodontitis, the prevalence of root canal treatment (RCT) and the outcome of RCT assessed as root filled teeth (RFT) with radiolucent periapical lesions (RPL) or non-retained RFT, and several systemic diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, smoking habits, osteoporosis, inherited coagulopaties, biologic medications, low birth weigth or physical fitness...

This position statement on the management of deep caries and the exposed pulp represents the consensus of an expert committee, convened by the European Society of Endodontology (ESE). Preserving the pulp in a healthy state with sustained vitality, preventing apical periodontitis and developing minimally invasive biologically based therapies are key themes within contemporary clinical endodontics. The aim of this statement is to summarise current best evidence on the diagnosis and classification of deep caries and caries-induced pulpal disease, as well as indicating appropriate clinical management strategies for avoiding and treating pulp exposure in permanent teeth with deep or extremely deep caries...
