Root-end Filling Materials: A Literature Review


Abstract: Obtaining a hermetic seal between the periodontium and the root canal system is the major objective of root canal treatment. When this hermetic seal is not possible by non-surgical endodontic therapy, apicectomy which is the main part of surgical endodontics should be performed to save the tooth. This surgical endodontics consists of root resection, apical preparation and finally root end filling material to seal the root canal system. This article reviews the suitability of the most common long standing and novel root end filling materials over evolving years. Keywords: retrograde filling material, biocompatibility, cytotoxicity, periradicular surgery
