Abstract

The permanence of microorganisms in the root canal system (SCR) is the main etiological factor for the failure of endodontic treatment. The root canal microbiota, its cytotoxic profile and the host's immune system are the main responsible for the course of apical inflammation, as well as for the success and longevity of endodontic treatment. Considering the importance of persistent microorganisms to endodontic treatment, their antigenic activity and interaction with the host organism for the success of endodontic treatment, this study aims to characterize and to evaluate the microbiota (bacteria/fungi) of cases indicated for conventional endodontic retreatment due to the presence of chronic apical periodontitis after different times of clinical failure, as well as the levels of endotoxins (LPS) and lipoteichoic acid (LTA) associated with endodontic infections. For identification and detection of microorganisms will be selected 40 patients in need of endodontic retreatment due to the presence of periapical lesion subdivided into 4 groups determined by the time elapsed since the primary endodontic treatment. The microbiological, cytotoxic and cytokine content will be collected from the SCR using the sterile absorbent paper cone technique. The extracted DNA will be submitted to NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) sequencing. Endotoxin (LPS) concentrations will be determined using the LAL turbidimetric method. There will also be an immunoenzymatic ELISA assay for quantification of lipoteichoic acid (LTA). The data obtained will be analyzed through bioinformatics pipelines for diversity, while the results of the other studies will be properly tabulated and statistically analyzed using SPSS 23 for Windows.
