This episode is the second part of a two-part series in which Dr. Ricucci tackles controversial topics in endodontics. In this two part series we'll be talking about whether or not we can regenerate the dentin pulp complex, direct pulp capping, caries excavation and whether or not you should get patency with every canal. Dr. Ricucci runs his own histology laboratory, has over 100 publications, authored two textbooks, 16 book chapters and lectured nationally and internationally.

He served in the Research Committee of the European Society of Endodontology from 1999 to 2005.
Dr. Ricucci’s primary research interest relates to pulpal and periapical tissue reactions to caries and treatment procedures, biofilms in endodontic infections, etiology of RTC treatment failure, pulp regeneration/revascularization. Since 1998 he has run his own histology laboratory and has developed considerable skills in hard tissue preparations for light microscopy.
Dr Ricucci has published 110 papers and has lectured both nationally and internationally. He has authored the Textbook and Atlas “Patologia e Clinica Endodontica”, the textbook and atlas “Endodontology. An integrated biological and clinical view”, also translated into Chinese, Russian, Japanese. He has also authored or co-authored 22 book chapters.
