Apical Surgery

When inflammation and infection persist after the root canal treatment an apical surgery (Apicoectomy) may be indicated to solve the problem.

The Apicoectomy consists on performing an incision in the gum tissue to expose the bone and the infected tissue which will be removed along with the tip of the root. A filling at the end of the root will be placed to seal and prevent reinfection and the gum tissue is repositioned with stiches to let the tissue heal properly.
