Apicoectomy

Apicoectomy treatments abroad

An apicoectomy might also be called a root-end resection and is a surgical procedure performed by an endodontist and involves opening the gum tissue and removing any inflamed or infected tissue and the very tip of the root of the tooth. The endodontist also cleans the root canal, and then stitches the gum back into place. Over the next month or so, the bone will regrow around the root tip. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthetic, so the patient is awake and alert but the area being treated is numbed. Patients are usually able to drive themselves after the procedure. The procedure itself may take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. An apicoectomy is usually necessary root canal treatment fails.

Apicoectomies are usually performed in an attempt to prevent the need for a tooth to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant. If the first root canal fails, a root canal retreatment may be attempted to locate the canals that were not thoroughly cleaned the first time but if the second fails, and apicectomy is usually the last resort. It may also be an option if the tooth has a crown or bridge, as a root canal may damage or destroy the restorative work, so an apicoectomy will be safer.
