New philosophies in surgical endodontic treatment

The success rate of endodontic surgery has shown significant improvement over the past two decades. To this day, many clinicians consider endodontic surgery as the last resort for saving an endodontically treated teeth and often present the outcome as guarded to the patients. If the need of endodontic surgery is combined with a compromised periodontal or restorative condition, extraction is often recommended and implant placement is advocated.  

Objectives:

  • Discuss the best evidence available regarding micro-surgical endodontics and factors contributing to its long-term success
  • Review new considerations in planning and dealing with complicated surgical cases to restore the supporting structure and provide a predictable outcome
