Techniques and Technologies have been developed to satisfy the demands of evolving micro techniques but are not limited to the classical endodontic armamentarium. The most recent example is the implementation of the Piezosurgical technique for root end surgery. Posterior sites, with substantial cortical plate thicknesses and sensitive anatomy, present the dichotomy of visualization versus post-surgical regeneration of bone. The bony lid technique bridges the gap between these two concepts, and the application of Piezosurgery renders a precise and biocompatible osseous incision. This seminar will introduce the participant to the indications/contraindications of the Bony Lid technique, the fabrication of a precision endodontic surgical stent (PRESS) and execution of the technique in a mandibular molar site.
