ROOT END SURGERY

Root end surgery, also known as apicoectomy, is an advanced surgical procedure used to treat infected teeth, either from decay or trauma. Root end surgery is designed to remove the end of the root of a tooth, as well as any infection or debris that may be present in the area. Root end surgery is an important procedure for treating infected teeth, as it can help to prevent further damage to the tooth or surrounding tissue. It is usually performed when a root canal treatment has failed and the infection has spread to the root end. In some cases, root end surgery may also be recommended to treat a fractured or damaged tooth root, or to help repair a fracture in the jawbone.
During a root end surgery, the dentist will first make an incision in the gums around the affected tooth. Once the gum tissue is lifted, the dentist will be able to see the root of the tooth, as well as any infection or debris that may be present. The dentist may then use a small drill to remove the end of the root and any infected tissue present. Once the root end is removed, the dentist will fill the area with a special material, such as a composite, to help prevent any further infection. Root end surgery is a relatively simple procedure, but it is important to understand the risks and potential complications associated with the procedure. Contact us for more details.
