  • Prevalence and Reasons for Extraction of Endodontically Treated Teeth in Adult Nigerians. [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Contemp Dent Pract 2018 Dec 01; 19(12):1469-1473

  • CONCLUSIONS: The association between age and extraction was proven. Caries, vertical root fracture and endodontic reasons accounted for the commonest cause of extraction in the mandible; while in the maxilla, endodontic reasons and cusp fracture caused extractions most often.The reasons for extraction of endodontically treated teeth are different between maxilla and mandible.
  • Root dentinal microcracks: a post-extraction experimental phenomenon? [Journal Article]
  • IEInt Endod J 2018 Dec 14
  • De-Deus G, Cavalcante DM, … Dummer PMH
  • CONCLUSIONS: This in situ cadaveric model revealed the lack of pre-existing dentinal microcracks in non-endodontically treated teeth. Thus, the finding of dentinal microcracks observed in previous cross-sectional images of stored extracted teeth is unsound and not valid. It should be assumed that microcracks observed in stored extracted teeth subjected to root canal procedures are a result of the extraction process and/or the post-extraction storage conditions. Therefore, as a consequence, the presence of such dentinal microcracks in stored extracted teeth - observable in cross-sectional images of the roots - should be referred to as experimental dentinal microcracks.
