Available Sessions

  • Are you planning your apical surgeries properly?
    Learning Objectives:

    • Describe about the concept of complete surgical retreatment
    • Recognize the treatment alternatives and proper approaches on immature permanent teeth with apical periodontitis.
    • Discuss the shortcomings of limiting the surgical treatment planning to only the root.
    • Describe which parameters to consider for GTR

    The success rate of endodontic surgery has shown significant improvement over the past two decades. With the implementation of micro-surgical techniques, the procedure became easier and more predictable enabling complete retreatment of the root in a surgical manner. As a result, apical surgery became the treatment of choice to address many cases with persistent apical periodontitis. However, are we doing a disservice to our patients by limiting our surgeries to only managing the periapical disease? Should we broaden our treatment planning to consider the supporting structure?
    In this presentation, we will present some novel approaches for surgical management of endodontic infections using complete surgical retreatment. We will also discuss the importance of addressing the supporting structure through guided tissue regeneration (GTR) and the impact it may have on the patient’s quality of life and future treatment options.
