Osteotomy with saline irrigation was done with Number 6 round bur, and 3 mm of root tip was resected with Lindemann bur. Bleeding was controlled using two epi pellets under pressure for 2 minutes at the bone crypt. Using ultrasonic tip, 3 mm retrograde cavity preparation was made and filled with MTA. After review radiograph, (Fig:7) the flap was repositioned and massaged with wet gauze and was sutured with 8 interrupted sutures using 5.0 silk. Post-surgical instructions were given. Patient tolerated the procedure well and suture removal was done 5 days later.
