Endodontic Retherapy; Recent Advances; Clinical Practices


Endodontic plays a major role in uplifting the quality of oral health. Retherapy offers the patient a subsequent
prospect to save a tooth that would otherwise be certain for extraction. The prime objective of retherapy is
to gain entry to the apical foramen by absolute confiscation of the root canal packing substance thus easing
sufficient disinfecting and shaping of the absolute root canal system and terminal obturation. It can be
concluded that with the emergence of modern instruments and techniques it is bygone just to extract teeth
solely due to periapical disease and endodontic failures. Advances in scientific proficiency and technical
ability have assisted us to improve the prognosis of treatment, but it does not always end up in the desired
healing response while doing clinical practice
