Purpose:  To present the frequency of periapical healing in first, second and third mandibular molar after root-end resections sealed with dentine-bonded resin composite. N= 726 mandibular molars (n= 520) Materials and methods: •The sample was collected from the authors private clinic from 1984 to 1997. •Molars with periradicular periodontitis referred for surgery. •After root-end resection […]

Purpose: To compare the success rates of teeth with three different root end materials (Amalgam, SuperEBA and IRM) N= 488 cases. Materials and methods: •The sample was collected from two private endodontic clinics. •All patients that had apicectomy with a retro-grade filling in the past 10 years •Radiographs taken at the completion of surgery and […]

Summary: Data from 1000 cases treated by endodontic surgery were used to compare clinical and radiographic findings. N=120 • Radiographic healing classification was proposed with min. observation period of one year:  •G1 (complete healing): reformation of the periodontal space, bony cavity filled with bone. •G2 (incomplete healing/scar tissue): rarefaction present (decreased or stationary), irregular, asymmetrical, […]

Summary:  •Purpose:  to correlate histological and radiographical findings after endodontic surgery. •Materials/Methods: n: 70 biopsy of apices and PA tissue  (35 Max. laterals) were investigated by both methods (histological sections and RG examination). Specimens were divided according to degree of inflammation: Mild: <105 μ m2 – Moderate: from 105 μ m2 to 3X105 μ  m2 […]
