Dr Christian Gernhardt
With the International Dental Show in Cologne behind us, it seems the perfect time to look at recent developments and trends in endodontics. Even though the main principles of root-canal treatment—mechanochemical preparation of the root-canal system to remove pulp tissue and bacteria, 3-D obturation and adequate coronal restoration—have not changed, there have been a few remarkable developments in the form of systems that offer a completely new approach to root-canal preparation. Based on the established findings of the balanced force technique, new root-canal preparation techniques that use only one file with reciprocal motion have been introduced to the market. These new techniques may have the potential to make root-canal preparation easier for us and safer for our patients. However, at this point there are only a few published papers available to demonstrate the potential of these techniques. Therefore, further clinical studies are needed to corroborate the findings of these published studies in order to demonstrate the potential clinical benefit scientifically. In this regard, I am expecting there to be interesting information and publications over the next few months...

After explaining the basic physics of the laser and its effects on both bacteria and dentinal surfaces, the second part of this article series will analyse some of the most important research in the international literature today and the new guidelines for the use of laser as a source of activation of chemical irrigants...
The clinical use of the Er,Cr:YSGG laser in endodontic therapy
Dr Justin Kolnick, USA
otal elimination of bacteria from infected root-canal systems remains the most important objective of endodontic therapy. However, in spite of a plethora of new products and techniques, achieving this objective continues to elude our profession. Histo-rically, endodontic treatment focused on root-canal disinfection with “entombment” of remaining bacteria within dentinal tubules and inaccessible areas of the root-canal system. Although many factors have been implicated in the aetiology of endo-dontic failures, it has become evident that these “entombed” bacteria play a pivotal role in the persistence of endo-dontic disease...
Retreatment of a lower molar
Dr Konstantinos Kalogeropoulos, Greece
Endodontics is all about preserving the natural dentition. There is no better implant than the natural tooth, given the fact that it can be treated and restored effectively and predictably. Many factors, such as root perforation, affect the prognosis of endo-dontic treatment.1 Today, perforations can be managed predictably with the use of MTA cement as sealing material.
A case of diagnosis by access

Endodontic parousia - Nullius in verba redux
Dr Ken Serota, Canada
The intent of this article is to see whether I can finally shake up those of you who read my blog (on, spend time on it and yet do not post. The point of this “mashup” is to engender “discovery” of information, trends, likes, dislikes etc. and to DIALOGUE in the truest manner and context of social networking within this profession. Read away McDentist and offer your commentary, good, bad or indifferent, but never overlook the opportunity to make your voice heard...
