Endodontic Surgery

Influence of suturing on wound healing

Purpose: To understand the effect of different suture materials and techniques on wound healing. Most highlighted results: •The most popular technique for wound closure is the application of sutures. •As a consequence some clinicians have proposed surgical clamps as an alternative •Silk sutures are prone to colonization by biofilms, hence should not be applied for …

Guided tissue regeneration in periapical surgery

Purpose:  To provide a better understanding of basic molecular and cellular biologic concepts when using membrane barriers and bone grafts in periapical surgery with specific reference to GTR in periodontal regenerative therapy. GTR: is a technique for enhancing and directing cell growth to repopulate specific parts of the peridontium that have been damaged by periodontal …

The Influence of an Isthmus on the Outcomes of Surgically Treated Molars: A Retrospective Study

Purpose: To investigate the effects of an isthmus on the outcomes of surgically treated molars. N= 106 Maxillary and mandibular 1st molars (72 with isthmus, 34 without)  with endodontic lesion limited to periapical area. •Surgical procedures were performed by the same operator •Isthmus was included in the retrograde preparation design when observed and filled with …

Two- and tridimensional analysis of periapical repair after endodontic surgery.

Purpose: to evaluate the periapical repair of teeth after endodontic surgery using two- (conventional and digital radiography) and tridimensional (CBCT) imaging methods. N = 11 patients Materials/Methods:  •Maxillary anterior single-rooted teeth, with the presence of radiographically visible periapical bone rarefaction and indication for endodontic surgical treatment. •Conventional and digital periapical radiographs and CBCT of the …

Five-year changes in periodontal parameters after apical surgery.

Summary:  Purpose:  (1) to document changes in periodontal parameters in teeth with apical surgery over a long-term period of 5 years.         (2) to correlate the documented changes with patient, tooth, and treatment-related co-variables. N= 186 teeth. Materials/Methods:  •242 patients who underwent apical surgery from 2000 to 2004. •After the Surgical procedure All patients were …
