Periradicular surgery, assisted by an endoscope was performed on patients with persistent periapical lesion of endodontic origin, which were not responding to conventional root canal therapy. The objective of using endoscope was to use a cost effective alternative to surgical microscope for diagnosis, illumination and magnification of the surgical field. Endoscope helped in the assessment of the extent, direction and depth of the lesion. It provided excellent illumination, magnification of the surgical field including the root apices and the area around the root apices.
