Endodontic Surgery/ Apicoectomy


Occasionally, a nonsurgical root canal procedure alone cannot save your tooth and surgery is recommended to try to save the tooth.
In this procedure, the Endodontist opens the gum tissue near the tooth to see the underlying bone and to remove any inflamed or infected tissue. The very end of the root is also removed. A small filling may be placed in the root to seal the end of the root canal, and a few stitches or sutures are placed in the gingiva to help the tissue heal properly. Over a period of months, the bone heals around the end of the root.
