Large periapical defects may adversely affect the success rate
of endodontic surgery. Use of regenerative therapy may enhance
the prognosis of such teeth, but more than sure, can enhance and
even do shortening the necessary time prior to implant therapy
The concept of regenerative therapy entails utilization of periosteal
grafts with the potential to stimulate bone formation. It allows
cellular regrowth of defects caused by pathosis or surgical trauma
and has resulted in development of grafts, membrane or barriers
that are used in periodontal therapy.
In the following case report, surgery was performed several months
prior to extraction to address a periapical pathology that occurred
following a failed apicoectomy. Immediate implantation would have
been contraindicated without prior removal of the present remnants
and elimination of the active infection. Further, grafting the periapical
defect in advance of surgery maximized the amount of bone for the
eventual implant, helping ensure the primary stability needed for a
predictable outcome.
