Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to welcome you to submit your research to “Recent Advancements and Challenges in Endodontics”. Endodontics is a branch of dental science which mainly aims to “save the tooth”. Endodontics has a long history of research and clinical practice which have contributed to improving the health and wellbeing of people. Based on this firm and long-lasting scientific basis, endodontics has made recent advancements in clinical practice, materials/equipment, and related basic research. Recent advancements in endodontics include the following.

  • Advancements in clinical practice:
  • Surgical and nonsurgical endodontic treatment using operating microscopes
  • Computer-guided endodontics
  • Regenerative endodontics
  • Vital pulp therapy with modern concepts
  •  Advancements in materials/equipment

-Bioactive materials such as tricalcium silicate cement

-Electronic apex locators

-NiTi rotary instruments with various concepts

-Cone beam CT

  • Advancements in endodontic research

- Research using stem cells which is related to endodontics

This Special Issue “Recent Advancements and Challenges in Endodontics” aims to reflect recent advancements in endodontics which will encourage us to cope with the challenges of endodontics. Any submissions related to abovementioned topics are welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Root canal anatomy
  • Endodontic biomaterials
  • NiTi rotary instrument
  • Vital pulp therapy
  • Regenerative endodontics
  • Cone beam CT in endodontics
  • Science related to endodontics

We hope this Special Issue will serve as a roadmap for all endodontic researchers and practitioners.
