ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the apical cementum of infected teeth. It comments on the use of electric current to ionize the tooth root and on the coagulation of albumin if the current is above 0.5 milliampere. It mentions that x-ray images of teeth can only reveal regions of destruction within teeth rather than actual infection, and suggests that the condition of the apical cementum is important in determining if a tooth can be treated.

    A healthy Caucasian male lost all of his teeth because of aggressive cervical, apical, and lateral root resorption over a period of 11 years. Microscopically, there was no sign of reparative cementum apposition, but cell-rich fibrous connective tissue filling the deep resorptions was seen. The...
