An anatomic–functional continuity between the hard dental tissues, the pulp, and the periodontal tissues occurs. Endodontic pathology is related to periodontal lesions as periapical granulomas and cysts. Traumas and periodontic lesions can cause pulpitis and root resorption. Dental caries and incorrect restorative treatments can cause endodontic and periodontal lesions.
Investigating these pathogenic mechanisms also through analyzing the inflammatory biomarkers can improve the diagnosis in order to plan the most effective therapeutic strategies.
The conservative approach is still the first choice in oral rehabilitation, allowing tissues preservation and the use of biocompatible and durable dental materials.
Choosing the materials in the different clinical situations is a key step to prevent complications and effectively manage therapy. The research on innovative materials improves the knowledge of healing mechanisms and, therefore, clinical efficacy. The improvement of instrumental diagnostics also allows planning a correct therapy and follow-up results over time.
The mission of this Special Issue is to analyze etiopathogenic mechanisms and to develop tools, biocompatible materials, and therapeutic strategies in pathological conditions related to endodontic and periodontic lesions.
I invite researchers and university groups to share original, clinical, and review studies, both from a basic sciences and a translational perspective, in order to highlight the current concepts on this subject for our readers.
