Abstract: This article provides a comprehensive overview of the study conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of surgical root canal retrograde treatment in healing periapical lesions. The study, based on a systematic review of eight selected studies, explores various aspects of periapical lesion treatment, including success rates, follow-up durations, and the comparison between surgical and non-surgical approaches. The results indicate that surgical treatment offers a shorter healing period in short-term follow-ups, but there is no significant difference in long-term outcomes when compared to conventional non-surgical treatment. The abstract highlights the need for more clinical trials to establish guidelines for the appropriate use of surgical treatment in healing periapical lesions, emphasizing the importance of short-term versus long-term follow-up assessments.
