Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Dentistry is a discipline among life sciences in which technological advancements have shown pioneering and remarkable impacts on patient care in the last 20 years. However, all of these advancements and technology are mostly related to treatment parameters, and not much has changed in terms of endodontic diagnosis. 

An endodontic diagnosis is similar to a jigsaw puzzle in that it cannot be made from a single isolated piece of information. Furthermore, and even with the use of CBCT, diagnoses of endodontic infections re still based on unreliable clinical tests and subjective radiographic interpretation. Possible identification of inflammatory blood markers specific for endodontic infections or the use of new techniques can help us by providing an additional piece of the puzzle. Only with correct assessment of each particular case can evidence-based treatment options be offered to patients. 

This Special Issue welcomes original clinical research and observational studies as well as high-quality case reports and reviews dealing with diagnostic topics.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
