Dr. Jeyashree Jeyachandran, Dr. Mancy Modi, Prof. Dr. Devanand Shetty
The purpose of this article is to present a clinical case of iatrogenic complication of an endodontically treated tooth. Complications in relation to endodontic treatment are a common occurrence in dentistry. These may occur at any stage of endodontic management. The aim of this case report was to evaluate the influence of GTR on the outcome of surgical endodontic treatment. The authors have performed root-end resection. The root canal obturation was done and the iatrogenically displaced extruded gutta-percha point and lesion was fully enucleated. Guided tissue regeneration was done with an alloplastic material. The 21-year-old female patient was followed up at 2 weeks, 3 and 6 months presenting as a functional and symptomless tooth. Radiographic findings showed a clear and progressive refilling of the cavity with bone. All these factors highlight a positive prognosis after periradicular surgery, which is now considered a valid treatment for the tooth to remain functional.
