Aim: The purpose of this In Vivo study is to compare the three different retrograde filling materials following endodontic surgery by using CBCT.
Materials and Methods: In our study, patients with periapical lesion were selected irrespective of site, age and sex. After incision, flap elevation was done. Osteotomy was performed using no. 4 carbide bur, to gain access to the apical region. Apicoectomy was performed followed by retrograde filling with three different materials. Nova bone putty was used as a bone graft material at the lesion site. The flaps were then sutured .Preoperative and postoperative CBCT was done to determine the size of radiolucent area or the periapical lesion.
Results: Bioceramic showed maximum decrease in size of the lesion, followed by Biodentine and MTA.
Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study, Bioceramic surpassed the rest as a retrograde filling material.
