Problems in bleaching of endodontically treated teeth


Attin, T (2009). Problems in bleaching of endodontically treated teeth. In: Hülsmann, M; Schäfer, E. Problems in endodontics. Berlin: Quintessence Publishing, 515-530.

Abstract

Background
Discolored anterior teeth can have a very negative effect on a patient’s appearance.
Bleaching represents an alternative to invasive treatment such as crowning and the use of
veneers1 for correcting discoloration, while at the same time preserving the hard tissue of
the tooth. Endodontically treated, discolored teeth are generally bleached internally using
the walking bleach technique, in which the bleaching agent (recommended agent: a mixture
of sodium perborate/water) is left in the pulp chamber for about 3 or 4 days.2 Consequently,
the problems outlined below involved in the bleaching of endodontically treated teeth relate
exclusively to the walking bleach technique.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
