Preventive endodontics - an argument for avoiding root canal treatment
van der Sluis, Luc / Kidd, Edwina / Gruythuysen, René / Peters, Linda
The success rate of endodontic treatment is lower than expected, and is both time-consuming and expensive. Thus, techniques to enable a clinician to avoid it deserve more attention. Indirect pulp treatment (IPT) is a simple and effective treatment to preserve pulp vitality in teeth with deep carious lesions. Scientific data supports this treatment as means to preserving a healthy, vital pulp.
