When routine endodontic treatment fails to eliminate periradicular lesion, surgical endodontic treatment has to be undertaken. Retrofilling the root apex then provides the highly desirable hermetic seal. Though many materials are available, none till date fulfils the ideal requirements of a retrograde filling material. Research in this field, has however, culminated in the invention of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate at Loma Linda University. This material due to its various properties has excelled over other materials as a retrofil. The following article attempts to explain the reason behind the remarkable performance of MTA in surgical endodontics.
