Surgical endodontics has made great strides in the last two decades, evolving with technological advances and pushing the envelope with targeted endodontic microsurgery.  This presentation will critically evaluate the literature on the topic of endodontic microsurgery and will present evidence-based support for each step of surgical intervention. When surgeries are executed as prescribed, the success of the procedure is very high and should be presented as a valid alternative for failing root canal treatment instead of as a last resort

At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

  • Discuss how microsurgery as a treatment alternative should be considered alongside non-surgical options.
  • Explain how prognostic literature on the endodontic microsurgery consistently shows successful outcome.
  • Describe each step of the surgical procedure contributes to the reported high success rates.
