article description
It is imperative that the endodontic surgeon be knowledgeable of the anatomic dimensions of the surgical site. If cone-beam computed tomography is not available because of location/cost, it is prudent for the clinician to consult a knowledge base for the surgical site. An understanding of the root thickness of maxillary premolars and molars at the preferred level for root resection (3.0-3.6 mm), bone thickness over these roots, and the proximity of each root apex to the maxillary sinus will help the surgeon before and during the surgical procedure.
