Do You Need an Apicoectomy, or Root Canal Surgery?
Although most root canal procedures are done non-surgically, some situations are better suited to an apicoectomy or root canal surgery to get you healthy and comfortable again.
Traditional root canal treatments are the most common treatment but surgery may be the best option if the infection is at the very bottom of the root.
The surgery is performed by entering through the gum tissue and checking the integrity of the underlying bone, then both the diseased tissue and tip of the root are removed.
Recovery time is short, most patients are back to normal activity the next day. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your treatment options
