Share Abstract:

A combined endodontic retrofill and periodontal guided tissue regeneration technique for the repair of molar endodontic furcation perforations: Report of a case


Pages: 109-114
PMID: 8183975

This is a report of a case in which the techniques of endodontic retrofill and guided tissue regeneration were used together to treat a perforation of the mesiofacial root of a maxillary left first molar (a strip perforation). After full-thickness flap reflection, the root received a retrograde filling and a large fenestration defect was surgically created to allow access to the furcal (distal) surface of the mesiofacial root. The roots were treated with tetracycline, the defect was filled with freeze-dried, demineralized, irradiated human cadaver bone, and the access fenestration was covered with a piece of barrier membrane. Healing was uneventful and the defect showed 100% bone fill at the time of reentry to retrieve the membrane 7 months after the initial surgery. Fifteen months after surgery the area appears clinically and radiographically healthy and the tooth has been employed as an abutment for a fixed partial den ture.
