Considerable advancements have been made in the recent years in endodontic surgery with a consistently high success rate in published outcome studies. Till today, the decision to proceed with endodontic surgery as the first treatment option following a failed non-surgical initial treatment is still a point of debate, particularly when the quality of root canal is inadequate at the time of treatment. In this presentation we will review the most current literature on the outcome of surgical and non-surgical endodontic retreatment. We will also identify clinical scenarios where endodontic retreatment is necessary and others where it would be detrimental to the survivability of the tooth.
Evaluate the potential outcomes of endodontic surgery.
Explain the necessity of proper treatment planning.
List guidelines for decision-making in the day-to-day clinical practice.
