ABSTRACT
This article features a study on the bacteriology of vital pulps. The study aimed to discover whether or not vital pulps contain bacteria, and if they do, why. Researchers found that in about 50% of vital teeth with caries or pyorrhea tested, the pulp was infected with streptococci. Topics include pulpitis, gingival tissues, and staphylococci.

    A conference paper on the presence of actinomycetes-like organisms in root canals is presented. Details are provided about the microbiology of the mouth and the role of actinomycetes in the development of Vincent's infection. The similarities between oral actinomycetes and Actinomycetes bovis...

    Several factors can influence the success of endodontic treatment. One of these factors is coronal seal. Several in vitro and in vivo studies have assessed the influence of coronal seal on the bacterial penetration and prognosis of the root canal filling, respectively. There are a number of...

    Many strains of Enterococcus faecalis, a normal inhabitant of the oral cavity, elaborate a plasmid-encoded bacteriocin. The growth-inhibitory effect of this bacteriocin was observed to extend to a variety of pathogenic oral streptococci, including those that play a major role in tooth surface...

    The purpose of this study was to explore the virulence of strains of Streptococcus sobrinus that had been re-isolated from a desalivated rat. Furthermore, we wished to determine the influence of desalivation on the acidogenicity of fasting and sucrose- pulsed dental plaque in rats infected by...

    This article discusses the results of a research study conducted to isolate the microorganism Candida albicans from three root canal cultures taken from a single individual. The researchers note that the presence of yeast in root canals is rare as compared to other microorganisms. They find...

    Enterococcus faecalis is a micro-organism that can survive extreme challenges. Its pathogenicity ranges from life threatening diseases in compromised individuals to less severe conditions, such as infection of obturated root canals with chronic apical periodontitis. The common recovery of E....

    Cultural studies have indicated that a subset of the oral microflora is responsible for endodontic infections. Approximately 50% of oral bacteria are unculturable, so it is likely that currently unknown bacteria are present in such infections. In this study, cultural and molecular analyses were...

    Dentin has a relatively high water content due to its tubular structure. Once dentin is exposed, this intratubular water is free to move in response to thermal, osmotic, evaporative, or tactile stimuli. Fluid shifts across dentin are thought to cause sufficient shear forces on odontoblasts,...

    The purpose of this noninferiority trial was to compare postoperative pain relief after one-visit root canal therapy (ORCT) with a pulpotomy performed with a new endodontic calcium-enriched mixture cement (PCEM) in human permanent molars with irreversible pulpitis. A total of 407 selected...
