Endodontic Surgery

When inflammation or infection persists in the bony area around the root of your tooth after a root canal procedure, you may need endodontic surgery.

What is Endodontic Surgery?

This is a specific surgery for an area of the tooth that is not reachable by root canal or other treatments. When inflammation or infection occurs in the bony area surrounding the tip of your tooth root, a specific endodontic surgery, also called a root-end resection or apicoectomy, may be beneficial. We will open the gum tissue near the base of the tooth, remove inflamed and infected tissue and remove the tip of the root, so the bone can heal.

Reasons for Endodontic Surgery?

  • Infection persists after non-surgical root canal
  • Calcifications are present in the canal the make surgery the only option to access the remainder of the canal
  • To detect small fractures or hidden canals that are preventing healing
