What Is Endodontic Surgery?

Endodontic surgery refers to a variety of surgical procedures performed to treat issues that cannot be resolved through non-surgical endodontic treatment. These surgeries, including the common procedure known as an apicoectomy, are designed to alleviate discomfort and save your natural teeth. They typically involve removing the root tip and infected tissue, followed by sealing the root end to prevent further infection.

When Is Endodontic Surgery Necessary?

Endodontic surgery may become necessary when non-surgical root canal therapy is insufficient or impossible. This can happen when infection or inflammation persists even after treatment, when complex root structures or blockages prevent effective non-surgical treatment, or when damage to the surface of the root or surrounding bone is detected. At our practice, we carefully evaluate your condition and only recommend surgery when absolutely necessary for your oral health.

Types Of Endodontic Surgery

There are several types of endodontic surgery to address varying issues. The most common is an apicoectomy or root-end resection, often performed when inflammation or infection persists in the bony area around the end of your tooth. Other types include intentional replantation, where the tooth is extracted and treated before being reinserted into the socket, and root amputation, a procedure for multi-rooted teeth where one damaged root is removed to save the rest of the tooth. Rest assured, our expert team will recommend the most suitable surgery for your unique needs.
