Evidence-Based Endodontics invites submissions to two newly launched thematic series

Evidence-Based Endodontics welcomes submissions!

Two new thematic series, Cone Beam Computed Tomography and Speculations, knowledge and evidence about crown and root fractures are now open for submissions with Evidence-Based Endodontics.

The Guest Editor for the first of these two thematic series, Professor Kıvanç Kamburoğlu, welcomes submissions which attempt to answer the many key questions around Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), which yet remain unanswered.

This thematic series aims to explain fundamentals of CBCT and show its indications in diagnosis and treatment in endodontics.

“Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is now commonly used in endodontics due its advantages over medical CT such as; lower patient radiation dose, ease of usage, availability and lower cost. This thematic series aims to explain fundamentals of CBCT and show its indications in diagnosis and treatment in endodontics. Although, CBCT may provide useful information in several endodontic cases it must be only used in correct indications where its usage provides direct benefits over its risks. Referral criteria for endodontics should be updated routinely in light of newer investigations. In addition, further studies should focus on effects of CBCT imaging on decision making, treatment planning and outcome assessment along with the cost effectiveness of the system in endodontic practice.”

Guest Editor of our second thematic series, Professor Aviad Tamse, calls for authors to submit manuscripts on a wide range of topics regarding crown and root fractures in endodontically treated teeth.

“Crown originating fractures and vertical root fractures in endodontically treated teeth, are pathological phenomena which are frustrating both for the patient and the clinician. The clinician is frustrated and perplexed at times with regards to achieving an accurate diagnosis and the patient’s main concern is the treatment of choice, which often results in the tooth or root being extracted.

The clinician’s goal is to come out with the accurate diagnosis before making the treatment plan. At this stage there is difficulty as well. In both two types of fractures, the patient’s signs and symptoms are similar to other known clinical situations, such as chronic or acute pulpitis, chronic apical periodontitis or chronic and acute apical abscess.

For this thematic series for Evidence-Based Endodontics, we call for authors to submit their most updated information about a large range of topics related to the crown and root fractures.

The etiology of these two entities of chronic nature is multifactorial, making it a real challenge for the profession to take preventive measures against them.

Facing either one of these two pathological entities is not an easy task for the operator, since the issues of tooth fractures in general involve many dental aspects, of which the dentist has to have a good level of knowledge and expertise in, such as prosthetic dentistry, root canal treatment, periodontal disease and dental surgery.

When we are evaluating the accumulation of publications in recent years about crown fractures and root fractures in endodontically treated teeth, we learn that the number of good quality, evidence-based publications, be it original research or systematic reviews, are very scarce.

For this thematic series for Evidence-Based Endodontics, we call for authors to submit their most updated information about a large range of topics related to the crown and root fractures.

Examples for important and relevant topics to submit to this series include: etiological factors and risk assessments for crown and root fractures, the clinical perplexity of crown and root fractures, the use of new diagnostic modalities such as the use of CBCT, epidemiological aspects of crown and root fractures and management of fractures.

There are a variety of article types that can be submitted to the series including case reports, prospective and retrospective controlled trials and systematic reviews. I am confident that each and every one of the manuscripts published as part of the series will add important information to our profession, regarding crown and root fractures in endodontically treated teeth.”

We now invite authors to submit manuscripts to these two important series. All manuscript types will be considered for publication, depending on their relevance and scientific quality. All articles will be published under Evidence-Based Endodontics’ open access policy, which allows maximum visibility of articles published in the journal, as they are available to a wide, global audience.  In addition, the journal offers a fast publication schedule and all manuscripts will be subject to rigorous peer review. For more information about the journal or how to submit, authors should visit the journal website.
