Purpose: Apical resection is a surgical technique that involves removing a tooth's root tip and sealing the apical extent of the root canal system. However, evidence-based information on the biomechanical effects of apically resected tooth determinants is lacking. The aim of the present study was to examine the biomechanical effects of using different graft materials and the effect of different resection quantities on the tooth radix.
