    ABSTRACT: Introduction: The development of regenerative endodontic therapies offers exciting opportunities for future improvements in treatment outcomes. Methods: Advance's in our understanding of regenerative events at the molecular and cellular levels are helping to underpin development of these therapies, although the various strategies differ in the translational challenges they pose. The identification of a variety of bioactive molecules, including growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, and matrix molecules, sequestered within dentin and dental pulp provides the opportunity to present key signaling molecules promoting reparative and regenerative events after injury. Results and Conclusions: The protection of the biological activity of these molecules by mineral in dentin before their release allows a continuing supply of these molecules, while avoiding the short half-life and the non-human origin of exogenous molecules. The ready release of these bioactive molecules by the various tissue preparation agents, medicaments, and materials commonly used in endodontics highlights the opportunities for translational regenerative strategies exploiting these molecules with little change to existing clinical practice.

    ABSTRACT: The detection of vertical root fractures (VRFs) is a significant challenge for clinicians. Cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging has been used recently in this field with high accuracy and sensitivity. Research results about its superiority over periapical radiographs (PRs) are mixed and inconclusive. The aim of this review and meta-analysis was to provide evidence about the accuracy of CBCT imaging in diagnosing VRFs in human teeth with and without endodontic treatment compared with conventional/digital radiography and to establish optimal imaging parameters for accurate VRF detection using CBCT imaging through a systematic approach.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to investigate the effects of 2 inorganic polyphosphates (poly[P]) are linear polymers of orthophosphate (Pi) residues linked by energy-rich phosphoanhydride poly(P) compounds, sodium triphosphate (STP, Na5P3O10) and sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP, Na15P13O40 ∼ Na20P18O40) on the proliferation, odontoblastic differentiation, and angiogenic potential of human dental pulp cells (HDPCs). Differentiation was measured by alkaline phosphatase activity, calcified nodule formation by alizarin red staining, and marker messenger RNA (mRNA) levels by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction. In vitro angiogenesis was quantified by migration, mRNA levels of angiogenic genes, and endothelial tube formation. STP and SHMP dose dependently increased the proliferation and ALP activity and enhanced mineralized nodule formation and odontoblast marker mRNAs of HDPCs. STP and SHMP resulted in the up-regulation of angiogenic genes in HDPCs. Endothelial cells treated with conditioned medium collected from STP- and SHMP-exposed HDPCs showed an increase in migration and capillary tube formation. Knockdown of the expression of the genes encoding of inorganic pyrophosphate by small interfering RNA attenuated the STP- and SHMP-induced odontogenic differentiation and angiogenic potential. This study showed that STP and SHMP promote the growth, differentiation, and angiogenic potential of HDPCs. These results suggest that STP and SHMP may be candidates for dental pulp tissue engineering and regenerative endodontics. Copyright © 2015 American Association of Endodontists.

    ABSTRACT: This study was done to develop a glide path preparation nickel-titanium rotary instrument by size optimization procedures and evaluate the properties of the prototype. G-1 and G-2 files were tested for cyclic fatigue, torsional resistance, and screw-in force. The cyclic fatigue resistance was compared by measuring the number of cycles to failure by using a 90° curved metal canal (n = 10). The torsional resistance was evaluated at 3 levels (2, 4, and 6 mm from the file tip) by measuring the ultimate torsional load (n = 10 each level). The screw-in forces (n = 5) were measured during sequential pecking in a simulated resin block to the end of foramen by using the customized shaping device (AEndoS). Meanwhile, finite element models of G-1 and G-2 files were made by reverse engineering, and their bending stiffness and torsional properties were calculated. By analyzing the results from mechanical tests and finite element analysis, a universal G (uG) file was designed to have intermediary mechanical properties, and then the prototype was fabricated by the manufacturer. Cyclic fatigue and torsional resistance tests and screw-in force with the uG were compared with G-1 and G-2 files. The prototype of uG file showed higher cyclic fatigue resistance than the G-2 file and intermediary torsional strength and screw-in forces between the G-1 and G-2 files. The prototype production from a size optimization procedure produced appropriate mechanical properties for the purpose of development. Copyright © 2015 American Association of Endodontists.

    ABSTRACT: Tooth autotransplantation is a viable treatment option for tooth replacement when a suitable donor tooth is available. These case reports described significant vertical bone growth after autotransplantation of a mature third molar. The left mandible third molars (n = 2) were transplanted to the missing tooth in the left mandible. The patient follow-up period was 10 years after transplantation. Clinical examination revealed no mobility of the transplanted tooth. Radiographic examination indicated that bone regeneration occurred around the transplanted tooth. Vertical bone growth was observed in the cervical area of the root surface and the recipient bone. In autotransplantation of mature teeth, long-term follow-up results indicate that vertical bone growth can be expected if viability of the periodontal ligament cells is maintained.
