ENDODONTIC: Root Tip Resektion with orthograde filling


A root tip resection with orthograde filling is a surgical removal of the root tip and the cleaning of the dental canal crown-wards. Like the root treatment the RTR pursues the highest goal which is to clean the root canal.



Actually this should happen during a root treatment. Unfortunately this is not invariably the case and thus a RTR is the result. If the root canal is accessible from above it has to be cleaned from above.
