Endodontic Microsurgery - A Narrative Review

Dr. Paravreet Woodwal | Dr. Ashu K. Gupta | Dr. Neha Sharma [2]

Abstract: Endodontic treatment aims to cure or prevent apical periodontitis caused by root canal infections. Microsurgical endodontics has significantly increased the success rate of endodontic surgery to around 90% through better visualization, precise preparation and filling, and conservation of bone and root length. The dental operating microscope provides bright, focused light and magnification for better visualization of the surgical site, and instruments have been reduced in size to fit comfortably into the osteotomy, allowing access to the canals. The use of dental operating microscopes in endodontic surgery has highlighted previous shortcomings and ushered in a new era of microsurgical techniques, resulting in less postoperative pain, edema, and faster wound healing. Continual scientific investigation is necessary for the evaluation and modification of techniques and materials used in endodontic surgery, emphasizing long - term outcomes.
