Endodontics, Endodontic Retreatment, and Apical Surgery Versus Tooth Extraction and Implant Placement: A Systematic Review
The endodontic treatment and the implant placement are both valid and complementary options for planning oral rehabilitation. Although a level B recommendation can be stated, these results com from retrospective comparable studies because there is a lack of randomized clinical studies comparing both types of therapeutic options.

Se estima que entre un 50-70% de los pacientes con dolor crónico de moderado a intenso sufren trastornos del sueño que se manifiestan como dificultad para quedarse dormido, despertares nocturnos por dolor y sueño no reparador.
En base a los datos recogidos hasta el momento parece existir una relación clara entre dolor crónico y calidad del sueño
Introduction and Objective: The keratocystic odontogenic tumor is a benign but aggressive neoplasm. As enucleation alone obtains high recurrence rates, some adjuvant treatments such as Carnoy’s solution have been proposed. The aim of this study is to evaluate the reduction of recurrences with the use of Carnoy’s solution as adjuvant in the treatment of keratocystic odontogenic tumors. Material and Methods: An electronic search in Pubmed (MEDLINE), ScienceDirect and Cochrane databases was conducted with the key words “odontogenic keratocyst”, “keratocystic odontogenic tumor”, “carnoy’s solution”, “treatment” and “enucleation”. The inclusion criteria were clinical studies using Carnoy’s solution as adjuvant for the treatment of keratocystic odontogenic tumors, published in English, including at least 10 patients. Articles with an unclear reporting of the treatment applied, nonhuman studies, case reports and lesions associated to Gorlin-Goltz syndrome were excluded. Results: All the studies included were case series. The recurrence rate of enucleation ranged from 0% to 58.8%. With the only use of Carnoy’s solution as adjuvant treatment to the enucleation, recurrences varied from 0% to
100%. The use of ≥ 2 adjuvant treatments reduced the range between 0% and 7.9%. Conclusions: The use of Carnoy’s solution as adjuvant therapy for the treatment of keratocystic odontogenic tumor
has a grade C recommendation.
