The aim of this report is to discuss a case about a failed root canal treated upper right lateral incisor presented with chronic periapical pathology with extruded guttapercha. Apicoectomy involves surgical management of a tooth with a periapical lesion, which cannot be resolved by routine endodontic treatment. The goal of apical surgery is to prevent leakage of bacteria and their byproducts from the root canal system into peri-radicular tissue.With the advancements in magnification, armamentaria and materials, the success rate of treatment outgrows. Hence, present study describes a case of retreatment successfully treated by endodontic periapical surgery.

Keywords: Periapical lesion, Apicoectomy, MTA.
