Endodontic treatments, Treatment outcomes, Success rate, Influence factors


The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes and influence factors of endodontic treatment at Dental Clinic, Phrom Buri Hospital, Sing Buri Province. The retrospective study recalled 140 treated teeth from 12 months to 84 months. The criteria used for evaluation of the outcomes were clinical and radiographic examination. The results show that 82.86% were successful, 12.86% were uncertain and 4.29% were failure. Three significant factors (p<0.05) that influenced the outcomes were status of the pulp, preoperative periapical lesion and apical level of root canal filling.
