Practice-Based Root Canal Treatment Effectiveness Among Diabetics and Non-Diabetics

This was a retrospective cohort study to test the hypothesis that endodontic treatment failure is significantly higher among dental patients with diabetes mellitus type II when compared to non-diabetic controls. The idea for this research project was a result of ideas provided by dentists who completed the Dental PBRN enrollment questionnaire. This project was primarily funded by an R21 grant from NIDCR (R21-DE-16033).
