The role of endodontic therapy is to conserve as much as possible the dental tissues and keep the tooth on the arch, even in case of periradicular lesions. Situations are encountered when conservative endodontic treatment is impossible to achieve, the only solution for tooth rescue being endodontic surgery. Aim of study: The evaluation of a large group of patients needing endodontic surgery during 2014-2019 and a statistical analysis of the weight of each used technique. Material and methods: 1320 patients who requested endodontic treatment during 2014-2019, were assesed, followed by the selection of those who needed endodontic surgery. Results and discussions: Of the 1320 patients analyzed, surgery (6,3%) was required, with different approaches. Conclusions: Endodontic surgery is an alternative to conservative therapy and applied to teeth that have clear indications in this respect, offers the possibility of favorable solutions by preserving the teeth and including them in prosthetic restorations, meant to restore the morfofunctionality of the dental arches.
