Healthy 32 year old male with a cyst which has not resolved after 5 months of endodontic treatment. He experiences occasional pain and discomfort. The root of #35 (20) was resected, with a backfill of the root canal with MTA. Cyst enucleation was confirmed with histopathology examination. The bone defect was filled with Bond Apatite® (0.5 cc).
Good healing was observed 6 months post-op with no clinical symptoms. Only two days of pain and minor swelling was reported after the surgery. During the surgery we observed how nicely the Bond Apatite® filled the bone was observed 6 months post-op defect, and how traditional augmentation techniques (bovine bone, membrane, pins etc.) take more time and are more difficult to use.
