WHAT IS AN APICOECTOMY?

Usually, a tooth that has undergone a root canal can last for a very long time, even the rest of your life, and never need further endodontic treatment . However, in few cases, a tooth may not heal or may become re-infected. A tooth may become painful or diseased months or even years after successful treatment. If this occurs, root canal surgery may help save your tooth. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth which have already undergone a root canal procedure is an apicoectomy or root-end resection. Other reasons for endodontic surgery are for diagnosis, allowing your dentist to examine the entire root of your tooth, find the problem, and provide treatment, and to treat damaged root surfaces or surrounding bone.
