Apicoectomy – Endodontic Surgery
Most of the time root canal therapy is successful. Occasionally infection persists at the root end of a tooth that has had a root canal. In these cases a procedure called an apicoectomy with retrograde filling is a good option to save the tooth. Our Doctors have had extensive experience performing apicoectomies. They use precision instruments and the most up do date materials. In fact endodontists (root canal specialists) refer patients to our Doctors for this procedure. It can be performed with either local or general anesthesia. Recently we have added a high resolution 3 dimensional scanner to our office. We can now better diagnose your specific problem to maximize successful outcomes. We will be happy to discuss your options with you if you have a tooth with a persistent problem.
