The success rate in endodontic retreatment can be significantly boosted by using materials that guarantee both intimate adhesion to the canal walls and long-term stability. Bioceramic cements used in root filling show interesting properties including extraordinary sealing capacities, antimicrobial activity that stimulates periapical healing and the continuous production of hydroxyopathitis for a long time. This case report deals with the application of bioceramic cement in endodontic retreatment. The Bioroot RCS (Septodont), thanks to its ability to firmly adhere both to the gutta-percha and to the walls of the canal and to definitively seal the apical third, can allow to obtain extraordinary healing in a relatively short time by exploiting its antimicrobial abilities. However, further studies are needed to assess the effectiveness of this technique over the long term.
