1

What are 3 ways to dry the canal?

1-Small-tip aspirator
2-Coarse paper point
3-Fine paper point

*No direct air spray

2

What are 5 sealers?

1-Zinc-oxide and eugenol
2-Resin-based
3-CaOh base
4-Glass ionomer
5-Bioceramic

3

What are 5 ways to place sealer?

1-MAF in reverse
2-Gutta percha point
3-Paper point
4-Lentulo spiral
5-Syringe

4

What are 4 Core materials?

1-Gutta percha
2-Silver cones
3-Past fillers (temporary)
4-Hot dot on a stick

5

What are the standardized size ranges of Gutta percha?

-Size 15-140 (0.02, 0.04, 0.06 taper)

6

What are three techniques for gutta percha placement?

1-Lateral condensation
2-Warm Vertical compaction
3-Modified warm vertical (softened backfill technique)

7

What are the 7 steps of conventional root canal therapy?

1-Anesthesia
2-Rubber dam
3-Access (straight line)
4-Instrument/shape canal
5-Irrigate/disinfect
6-Dry
7-obturate

8

What are the 4 main types of insults to the pulp?

1-Microbial
2-Restorations (immediate)
3-Leaking restorations (years later)
4-Physical trauma

9

What are the 4 main responses the pulp has to microbial insult?

1-Chronic inflammation
2-Acute inflammation
3-Resolution and repair
4-Pulp death

*rarely internal tooth resorption

10

What are three ways a restoration immediately affects the pulp?

1-Thermal (bur heat)
2-Mechanical (cut dentin)
3-Chemical (restorative materials)

11

What causes pulp insult years after a restoration is placed?

Bacterial microleakage

12

What are three examples of physical trauma to the pulp?

1-Severance of the neurovascular supply
2-Concussive effects to the pulp
3-Direct pulp exposure

13

What are 3 responses of the pulp to physical trauma?

1-Discoloration- heme breakdown causes darkening of the tooth
2-Resorptive defects
3-Healing, or death

14

What are two things endodontic treatment accomplishes?

1-Eliminate infection in the dentin-pulp complex
2-Maintain tooth/teeth within the oral complex

15

What about the tooth vascular supply makes it be able to get to a point that it cannot heal anymore?

It has a terminal end blood supply, does not have collateral blood supply

*Appendix is this way too
