AIM To compare healing after root-end resection with a root-end filling of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) or smoothing of the orthograde gutta-percha (GP) root filling. METHODOLOGY Forty-four patients (consisting of 52 teeth with periapical infection), average age of 54.6 years (range 30-77) participated in a randomized clinical trial (RCT) comparing the MTA and GP treatment methods.
