Management of a cyst of apical origin with non-surgical endodontic retreatment

By Ronald Jesus Ramos Salazar


Technological advances to improve the quality of endodontic treatment in all aspects are insufficient if they are not complemented by adequate prosthetic treatment. The bacterial cause caused by the maladaptive prosthetic treatments can promote bacterial migration towards the root canal and the filling material, in case of endodontic treatment. If this situation is not controlled, the infection could continue into the periapical tissues, causing a periapical cyst. To treat the periapical cyst, identify with the tooth where the infection originated, portray the root canals and perform the surgical removal of the cyst. However, it is possible to perform a non-surgical approach with favorable results.Trabajo académicoLos avances tecnológicos para mejorar la calidad del tratamiento endodóntico en todos los aspectos son insuficientes si no se complementa con un adecuado tratamiento protésico. La filtración bacteriana causada por tratamientos protésicos desadaptados puede promover la migración bacteriana hacia el canal radicular y el material de obturación, en caso presente un tratamiento endodóntico. Si esta situación no es controlada, la infección podría continuar hacia los tejidos periapicales, causando un quiste periapical. Para tratar el quiste periapical será necesario identificar el diente donde se originó la infección, retratar los canales radiculares y realizar el retiro quirúrgico del quiste. Sin embargo, es posible realizar un abordaje no quirúrgico con resultados favorables
