MARTI-BOWEN, Eva  and  PENARROCHA, Miguel. An update in periapical surgery. Med. oral patol. oral cir.bucal (Internet) [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.6, pp.503-509. ISSN 1698-6946.

Periapical surgery has largely improved at all levels due to new technologies provided by researchers throughout the last years. The aim of this article is to carry out a bibliographic revision of the last seven years. For this reason, we will analyse the studies published in Medline and the most important spanish dental magazines. The subjects to investigate are mainly based on the incorporation of ultrasonic root-end, which allow the performance of small and adjusted retrograde cavities; as well as the new filling materials. We also include magnifying glasses or surgical microscope to the work material, plus surgical laser and the application of guided tissue regeneration.

Keywords : periapical surgery; apicoectomy.
