The field of endodontics has seen vast improvements in technology and techniques over the past several years. One area that has improved the most is the way in is performed. Today's apical surgery has evolved into endodontic microsurgery due to the significant aid of the surgical operating microscope, new techniques, and new materials. Endodontic microsurgery is an effective and successful procedure that alleviates periradicular pathosis, maintains restorations, and provides function and aesthetics for the patient. Research continues into improvements in instrument design and irrigation techniques that will enable the dentist to achieve more successful outcomes.
