The hunt for the elusive canals
N Bhargavi, N Velmurugan, D Kandaswamy
January-June 2005, 17(1):18-21
The anatomy of any root canal system has become so uncertain that none can claim that a maxillary first molar has only three roots and three canals. Variation in their morphology has become very common. This article deals with two case reports of extra canals in the mesiobuccal root and the various methods of detecting extra canals that could be easily overlooked. The importance of taking multiple angulated pre-operative radiographs and careful examination of the pulp chamber floor has been highlighted.

Efficacy of newer fourth and fifth generation bonding systems used along with dentin bonding composites resin as root end restorative materials: - A spectrophotometric analysis
C Meena Kumari, B SureshChandra
January-June 2005, 17(1):10-14
A number of root end fillings have been advocated and tested for sealing of pulp space at the apex. For over hundred years silver amalgam in some form or the other had been advocated as an ideal root end filling material. Composite resins have been used for root end fillings but have not gained wide spread acceptance probably due to the polymerization contraction and gap formation. With the advent of newer generation of dentin bonding systems interest in utilizing composite resins has increased tremendously. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the sealing ability of 4th and 5th generation bonding systems along with composite resins as root end restorative materials.

Trigeminal neuralgia in dental office
Shashi Rashmi Acharya, Raviraj V Acharya
January-June 2005, 17(1):22-24
Trigeminal neuralgia is the most common form of neuralgias and patients usually visit several clinicians with complaint of orofacial pain. As one of the symptoms is pain in the upper molar and premolar area, dental surgeons need to be aware and recognize this condition in the Dental office for early referral and management of this distressing condition, rather than unnecessary dental procedures including extraction.

Conventional vs rapid treatment modalities for wide canals
M Vidya Saraswathi, M Kundabala, Shashirashmi Acharya
January-June 2005, 17(1):15-17
The endodontic treatment of nonvital immature anterior teeth after trauma remains complicated because of necrotic pulp tissue, large open apices, divergent root walls, thin dentinal walls and frequent periapical lesions. These conditions usually result in difficulty in obturation, fracture of the root and consequently failure of treatment. While conventional approach in handling such teeth is calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] therapy, a rapid method is to opt for surgical intervention. The purpose of this article is to discuss various modalities of management of such teeth.
