Dear Endodontics Insider,

From fascinating case reports to upcoming events, DrBicuspid has the most up-to-date stories about endodontics, including techniques that may improve patient treatments, in this week’s Insider.

Not every root canal ends successfully. After the procedure, a 19-year-old woman developed an infection that left her with a large defect, according to a case report published on February 20 in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports.

Read more about this case to find out about her recovery and why it is significant for clinicians.

Did you know there may finally be a better way to remove fiber posts in endodontically treated teeth? We’ll give you a hint. The key may be augmented reality, and it has benefits for clinicians and patients.

Remember, there’s still time to register to attend the American Association of Endodontists 2024 meeting, which will be held in April in Los Angeles.

Until next time, hope you enjoyed this Insider.
