WHEN TO CONSIDER REFERRAL

WHEN TO CONSIDER REFERRAL Although many of the procedures presented in this chapterappear relatively straightforward, endodontic surgery is often complex and difficult to perform. Cliniciansshould carefully Consider the problems before undertaking such surgeries. Determining the Cause of Root Canal Treatment Failure Two steps are critical to success, particularly if surgery is being considered: (1) identificatio

RECALL

RECALL Recall evaluations to assess long-term healing are important. Some failures after surgery are evidenced only by radiographic findings. A I-year follow-up is generally a good indicator. If, after 1 year, radiographic evidence shows no decrease in lesion size or lesion size increases, it generally indicates a failure and persistent inflammation. P’ A decrease in lesion size (indicating hard tissue

CORRECTIVE SURG1RY

CORRECTIVE SURG1RY “Corrective surgery is managing defects that have occurred by a biologic response (Le., resorption or iatrogenic (i.e., procedural) error, These may be anywhere on the root, from cervical margin to apex. Many are accessible; others are difficult to reach or are in virtually inaccessible areas. Usually, an injury or defect has occurred on the root. In response to the injury, there may

PERIAPICAL SURGERY

PERIAPICAL SURGERY Periapical (i.e., periradicular) surgery includes resection of a portion of the root that contains undebrided or unobturated (or both) canal space. It can also involve reverse filling and sealing of the canal when conventional root canal treatment is not feasible. It is often performed in conjunction with apical curettage for reasons explained later in this chapter. Indications The success o

DRAINAGE OF AN ABSCESS

DRAINAGE OF AN ABSCESS and exudates from a focus of liquefaction necrosis (i.e., abscess). Draining the abscess relieves pain, increases circulation, and removes a potent irritant. The abscess may be confined to bone or may have eroded through bone and periosteum to. invade soft tissue. Managing these or extraoral swellings by incision for drainage is reviewed in Chapters IS and 16. BOX 17-1  Categories of En
