Abstracts
Aim To compare the periapical status of endodontically
treated teeth between Austrian and Croatian adult patients
and determine its relation to age, sex, position of
teeth, and length of root canal filling.
Methods The study was conducted from 2007 to 2009
at two university dental clinics and included 163 Croatian
(412 teeth) and 101 Austrian (430 teeth) patients. We
assessed the periapical status of endodontically treated
teeth by using the periapical index system and determined
its relation to age, sex, position of teeth, and length of root
canal filling.
Results Austrian patients had a greater number of diseased
endodontically treated teeth than Croatian patients
(P = 0.001). In the age group 31-40 years, Austrian patients
had apical periodontitis significantly more often (22.1% vs
12.2%, P < 0.001) than Croatian patients. In relation to sex
and position of teeth, no significant difference was found
between the two groups. In Croatian patients, apical periodontitis
was significantly more often present in molar than
premolar (46.2% vs 29.7%, P = 0.022) and front teeth (46.2%
vs 24.1%, P < 0.001). In Austrian patients, apical periodontitis
was significantly more often present in molar and premolar
than front teeth (molar-front teeth: 38.2% vs 25.5%,
P = 0.011; premolar-front teeth: 36.3% vs 25.5%, P = 0.029).
Croatian and Austrian patients significantly differed in the
number of adequately filled and underfilled teeth with AP
(both P<0.001).
Conclusion Apical periodontitis was significantly more
present in endodontically treated teeth in Austrian patients.
The difference in the periapical status between Croatian
and Austrian patients was most related to age and
length of root canal filling.
