Abstract:

The aim of the root end filling is to prevent the leakage of irritants from the root canal into the periapical region and to enhance the apical seal provided by the non surgical endodontic treatment. Various restorative materials which have been used for coronal restorations have been tried and tested as a root end filling materials, along with development of restorative materials exclusively for use as a root end filing material. In old times amalgam was considered the material of choice for root end filling. In recent times MTA has been developed which fulfils almost all the requirements of an ideal root end filling material and has become the gold standard against which the newer materials are compared. This article reviews the conventional root end materials in endodontics and gives a bird’s eye view of the recent advances in root end filling materials.

Keywords:

root end filling materials; endodontics; MTA; root resection; periapical surgery
