INTRODUCTION: Conventional endodontic treatment includes instrumentation of the canals in most cases to size #25/.06 or larger, which changes the original canal wall anatomy. In recent years, energy-driven equipment, such as photon-induced photoacoustic streaming (Fotona LLC, Dallas, TX) and a multisonic GentleWave system (Sonendo Inc, Laguna Hills, CA), have been introduced to facilitate cleaning of minimally instrumented canals or even uninstrumented canals. The purpose of this study was to examine root canal wall anatomy in premolar teeth cleaned by a noninstrumentation method after #10 K-file patency examination...

Hemophilia-a bleeding disorder due to the lack of clotting factors-is mostly induced by genetic factors. Its most common type is hemophilia A. Hemorrhage in hemophilia A may occur in several different sites of the body, including those inside the oral cavity, such as mucous membrane and gum. However, only a few studies and case reports on dental issues of hemophilia A patients have been conducted. In clinical dentistry, treatment procedures are invasive, possibly leading to more severe bleeding, especially in hemophilia A cases...

In the full-mouth rehabilitation of a patient with severely collapsed occlusion, a multidisciplinary approach including prosthodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, and surgery could provide better esthetic and functional results. Orthodontic treatment aiming for stable occlusion that meets the standard requirement of functional occlusion, enables the maintenance of occlusal function, and guarantees long-term stability on the basis of periodontal health was attempted. The essential element of this protocol is careful treatment planning based on the optimal sequence pursuing functional occlusion...
