The successful outcome of apical surgery is usually defined by absence of clinical signs and symptoms and resolution of previous periapical radiolucencies. However, little attention is given to soft tissue scarring. The present study evaluated the severity of gingival and mucosal scarring 1 year following apical surgery of 52 teeth. Clinical pictures taken at the 1-year examination were rated by three observers using specific scarring scores. The overall repeatability of the two scores was high (85.3%), whereas the overall reproducibility was relatively low (44.2%). None of the tested variables proved significant for influencing scar severity.
