TAMBCD researchers awarded AAE grant for retrospective case-control study

February 5th, 2016

The obturation material used in initial root canals could possibly make a difference in the treatment’s ultimate success or failure, say Department of Endodontics researchers Dr. Gerald Glickman, department chair and graduate program director, Associate Professor Dr. Jenny He and graduate student Dr. Benjamin Barborka.

With a $10,000, one-year grant from the American Association of Endodontists Foundation, the team will conduct a retrospective case-control study in which they will compare the long-term treatment outcomes of teeth obturated with various types of filling materials.
