Sometimes, a conventional root canal procedure is not enough to save a diseased tooth. In these cases, your endodontist may recommend a kind of endodontic surgery called apicoectomy. This treatment option, also called a root-end resection, involves your dentist opening the gum tissues in your mouth surrounding the affected tooth. Then, the tip of the problematic root is taken out and replaced with a small filling to keep the area healthy. At Concerned Dental, our in-house endodontists and oral surgeons offer numerous treatment options including apicoectomy to alleviate tooth and gum pain that is caused by diseased roots.
