Abstract

Overfilled gutta‑percha (GP) can lead to failure of root canal treatment. Management of overfilled GP may require periradicularsurgery with root end procedures. However, these procedures have drawbacks, particularly in a young patient. This articledescribes a case of periradicular cyst due to overfilled GP managed by periradicular surgery. Root capping at the apex wascarried out with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) instead of root end procedures. MTA root capping promoted apical buildup, sealing and periapical healing.
