You're faced with a beautiful crown with what seems like a decent root filling - but there's an apical infection present. Is the answer always endodontic re-treatment? When should we instead consider apical surgery so we can clear the infection WITHOUT drilling through the crown or having to dismantle posts? In this episode, specialist endodontist Dr. Peter Raftery and his associate Dr. Manpreet Dhesi will be talking about the Apicoectomy procedure that can be used to treat root-filled teeth using a 'retrograde' approach. They will discuss about how it fits into general dentistry, its indications and contraindications, its cost analysis vs implants and and the entire protocol for performing Apicoectomy Watch PDP148 on Youtube Protrusive Dental Pearl: The periradicular surgery guidelines issued by BES and the Royal College of Surgeons.

Let's face it, nothing in dentistry is a hundred percent predictable, and sometimes we are confronted with a scenario such as a beautiful central incisor crown and it's a root filled tooth, or worse yet a tooth and incisor, usually with a long thick post inside of it. Jaz's Introduction:Now, just because it looks good on the radiograph doesn't mean it was a good quality x-ray. We all know that. But anyway, let's say it looks like a decent root filling. There are no voids in it, and now you're really questioning whether it's really feasible to go down a root canal re-treatment, or is there another option? And sometimes that other option, which really comes into play in these scenarios is an apicoectomy where a flap is raised, the infection is curetted, and a bit of the root, a bit of the apex is chopped away, and then boney healing takes place. Now this is known as microsurgical endodontics. It used to be done a lot by oral surgeons in the UK at least many years ago. And now endodontists have reclaimed this territory and suggest that actually this is the way we do it to get high predictability. And that's exactly what we're got to discuss in this episode. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati. I'm joined in this episode by Dr. Peter Raftery,
