The RWE “Lid Technique” for retrofilling during apicoectomy

Allen Ali Nasseh   uploaded 9 years ago

Saving teeth is the primary goal of all endodontic therapy. However, when conventional, non-surgical root canal therapy does not work and the tooth has good coronal restoration and periodontal conditions, apicoectomy and retrofilling can be considered as a viable way to save teeth that would otherwise be extracted through a single procedure. In this video, Dr. Nasseh explains this procedure and how the modern “Lid Technique” developed by RWE is more efficient and effective than the historical apicoectomy procedure.

      In this video, Dr. Nasseh describes the evolution of a technique he developed over 6 years ago and how the material science improvement is now allowing endodontists to provide much more efficient apicoectomy procedures with better prognosis.

      Big Thanks for great and informative video!
      Also I have a few questions, why do You cut so much, like 6 mm of root tip?
      I am amazed how accurately you found the root tips with a bur, do You always take a CBCT before apicoectomy?
      I would like to see Your video about the flaps in different regions on the mouth.

      Best wishes,
