Apicoectomy, Root Resection #36 (19)

Healthy male, 47 years old. The inflammatory changes (radicular cyst) are not involved after 3 months post re-endodontic treatment using microscopy. He has pain and discomfort from time to time. We have done a root resection of tooth #36 (19) with backfill of the root canal with the MTA, cyst enucleation (confirmed with histopathology examination). We filled the bone defect with Bond Apatite® (1/2 cc).

Good healing and no clinical symptoms after 2 to 12 months was observed. Moreover, there was only one day of pain and two days of swelling after the surgery. During the surgery we observed how nicely the Bond Apatite® filled this bone defect, because it takes more time and is much more difficult to fill the defect using traditional augmentation techniques (bovine bone, membrane, pins etc).
