Apicoectomy (Endodontic Surgery)
We offer selected apicopectomy case.
An apicoectomy (aka. root canal surgery) is performed after an unsuccessful root canal. When an infection will not go away or returns after a root canal has been performed, and when the retreatment of root canal (second root canal treatment) will weaken the root, or/and the final restoration, the apicopectomy is necessary. During an apicoectomy, the tip of the root of the tooth is exposed by surgical incision through the gum and bone, and then the tip of the root is removed along with infected tissues and replaced with a filling.
In most cases the retreatment of root canal is considered before an apicoectomy since it is a simpler, less invasive procedure.
