Abstract

Introduction: accurate diagnosis in endodontics leads to the selection of adequate endodontic treatment. The terms used to name each pathology must be associated to particular clinical conditions. The standardization of diagnostic terminology in endodontics has been widely discussed in the academic and clinical fields. The objective of this study was to adapt and update the Guidelines for clinical diagnosis of pulp and periapical pathologies under the parameters of the ADAPTE methodology for circulation and socialization within the academic and professional communities. Methods: guidelines search was conducted in compiling agencies such as the National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC), USA National Center of Guidelines, and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Guidelines were selected with the AGREE II tool, considering AAE’s document “Consensus Conference Recommended Diagnostic Terminology” (2009) as “recommendable”, and initiating the adaptation process with ADAPTE. The source databases include Cochrane, PubMed, Tripdatabase, with verifiable key words in DeCS and MeSH. Literature assessment followed the parameters of the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) and the method of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). Results: adaptation and update of the Guidelines for clinical diagnosis of pulp and periapical disease. Conclusions: terminology standardization will allow identifying pulp tissue and periapical conditions. The development of guidelines for clinical practice must be supported on scientific evidence and on agreed methodologies.
