View from the Chairside: Root Resection Technique to Solve a Unique Clinical Dilemma
Continuing the series of cases that Dr. Paul Belzycki shared with us on CDA Oasis, here he is today presenting a case, using the root resection technique.
Dr. Paul Belzycki is a general dentist from Toronto, who has volunteered a number of clinical cases that will be presented on Oasis Discussions. Dr. Belzycki’s experience spans over 38 years of clinical practice in which he treated several complex cases that have required a combination of periodontal, endodontic, and prosthodontic treatments.
Dr. Belzycki welcomes your feedback and suggestions which you can share with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you find the case informative.

- Root resection is a technique employed to maintain teeth that have less than an ideal long-term prognosis.
- A patient in his sixties presented asymptomatic, no pain, and with a sinus tract.
- Three crowns were previously placed over endoddontically treated teeth. The crowns were still viable; however, with the sinus tract present, they needed to be redone.
- The treatment plan was to attempt endodontic treatment with the crowns removed and restore the quadrant comprehensively.
