Apicoectomy in Richmond, TX
An apicoectomy is a minor surgical form of root canal treatment. If your tooth still has problems after a root canal, then an apicoectomy may be a necessary general dentistry procedure. During an apicoectomy, your dentist removes the tip of your tooth’s root.
After removal of the root tip, your dentist will completely clean and then reseal your tooth. An apicoectomy will usually resolve any issues remaining after an initial root canal, such as reinfection or lingering pain. Tooth extraction – or removal – is sometimes an alternative to an apicoectomy, though each patient’s case is unique.
