Nonsurgical endodontic retreatment and apical surgery are predictable procedures for the management of endodontically treated teeth with persistent disease. However, there is no information available that compares these treatment modalities based on patients’ oral health–related quality of life (OHRQOL). The aims of this study were to compare the OHRQOL of patients who received nonsurgical endodontic retreatment versus those who received apical surgery and to identify correlations between OHRQOL, clinician-assessed healing outcome, and other factors.
