  1. 1. Coronal restoration in root-filled and non root-filled teeth : studies on periapical status, tooth survival, subsequent treatments and treatment decisions

    Author : Victoria Dawson; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endodontics; Coronal restoration; Indirect restoration; Direct restoration; Root canal treatment; Decision process; Apical periodontitis; Qualitative Content Analysis;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the following aspects ofdirect and indirect coronal restoration, primarily of root-filled teeth, withspecial reference to:• periapical health• the natural course of root-filled teeth, particularly furtherclinical intervention• the dentist´s decision-making process for root-filled teeth.The aims of coronal restoration are to restore the function and aestheticsof the tooth, with a tight marginal seal as protection from microbialleakage.

  2. 2. On implementation of an endodontic program : change of practice, treatment outcome and cost-effectiveness

    Author : Margaretha Koch; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endodontic program; treatment outcome; cost-effectiveness; dental practice; change of practice; NiTiR; root canal treatment; root canal therapy;

    Abstract : It is widely accepted that the uptake of research findings by practitionersis unpredictable, yet until they are adopted, advances intechnology and clinical research cannot improve health outcomesin patients. Despite extensive research there is limited knowledgeof the processes by which changes occur and ways of measuringthe effectiveness of change of practice. READ MORE

  3. 3. On root-filling quality in general dental practice

    Author : Lisbeth Dahlström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : root-filling quality; nickel-titanium rotary instrumentation; implementation; hands-on; social network; focus groups; qualitative content analysis; general dental practitioners; stress;

    Abstract : In Sweden, 250,000 root fillings are performed every year. The outcome of root canal treatment (RCT) is strongly correlated to the technical quality of the root filling. Epidemiological studies show high frequencies of suboptimal technical quality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cervical Radiculopathy: A Study With Selective Nerve Root Blocks

    Author : Leif Anderberg; Neurokirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; orthopaedics; Contrast distribution; Nerve root block; Cervical radiculopathy; Kirurgi; traumatology; Treatment; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : Cervical radiculopathy is diagnosed by history, clinical examination of the patient and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine. In many of the patients undergoing this diagnostic strategy, the nerve root/roots responsible for the radicular pain is difficult to define as clinical examination and MRI investigation does not provide information enough.

  5. 5. On bacteria Persisting Root Canal Treament. Identification and potential mechanisms of resistance to antimicrobial measures

    Author : Luis Chávez de Paz; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Anti-microbial treatment of infected root canals using mechanical instrumentation and chemicals for disinfection does not always lead to complete bacterial elimination and treatment failure may therefore result. As certain bacteria appear more resilient to endodontic treatment than others, the present thesis addresses the species that can most frequently be isolated after treatment and explores mechanisms, which could potentially afford these organisms resistance to anti-microbial treatment measures.
