SEEDAT, HC; VAN DER VYVER, PJ  e  DE WET, FA. Micro-endodontic surgery - Part 1: Surgical rationale and modern techniques. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2018, vol.73, n.3, pp.146-153. ISSN 0375-1562.

The discipline of endodontics has seen vast improvements in technology and clinical techniques over the past several years. One of the areas that has been characterized by new developments is the way in which endodontic surgery is performed. The gap between biological concepts and the ability to achieve clinically successful results has been narrowed down with the use of microsurgical and ultrasonic instruments, new retrograde materials and the use of the Dental Operating Microscope. This article will review the indications and contraindications for endodontic surgery, the use of Cone Beam Computed Tomography for diagnosis and treatment planning, and finally outline the modern technique for endodontic microsurgery.
