Micro-Surgical Procedure

Root-end resection or apicoectomy are the most common endodontic surgical procedures. When infection persists in the bony area at the root end after the root canal procedure it may be necessary
to intervine with a surgical procedure. This involves opening the gum to expose bone and infected tissue with a microscope. The tissue is removed and the very end of the root tip is also removed and a filling placed to seal canal. There are a few stitches placed to help the healing process. Some bruising and discomfort should be expected. An icepack is provided along with the necessary prescriptions.
