Root Canal Therapy Part I

Treatment Options

Learning Objectives: 

After hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Understand the beginning of the root canal therapy process, including best practices for disinfection and infection control procedures.
  • Know the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of indirect and direct pulp capping techniques.

Advancements in endodontic materials and technique have consolidated root canal therapy into three principal appointments: examination, canal preparation, and obturation. This sequence requires the practitioner to eliminate all bacteria from the canal space.  If the pulp is inflamed but still vital, clinicians have often proceeded with endodontic treatment as a single-visit procedure. The thought was that infection would not negatively affect the success rate of the procedure. Although the patient might experience some sensitivity for one or two days postoperatively, this soreness would subside. As long as the treatment was performed properly, follow-up radiographs usually revealed continued periapical health.
