Abstract: Aims: The outcome from conventional endodontic therapy does not always result in a healing of the periapical area, thus leaving a remaining lesion with or without symptoms. The primary treatment alternative is a revision of the orthograde root-filling if applicable. A second treatment alternative might be a periapical surgery procedure. The overall aim of this research project was to analyze the healing after a defined periapical surgical technique and commonly used retrograde root-filling mater... more
