About the process
To prevent tooth loss, root canal therapy is often all that is needed to save teeth with a diseased pulp. Occasionally, root canal therapy will not be sufficient to heal the tooth and the endodontist will recommend either revisional therapy or endodontic surgery. Endodontic surgery can be used to treat conditions that are inaccessible to conventional therapy. Damaged and/or infected root surfaces and the surrounding bone may also be treated with surgery. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.
Apicoectomy is the dental term for Endodontic surgery.
What is Endodontic Procedure
An incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the root and surrounding inflamed tissue. The damaged tissue is removed along with the infected end of the root tip. A root-end filling is placed to seal the root canal and prevent re-infection of the root canal space. The gum tissue is then sutured back into place, allowing the bone to naturally heal around the root over a period of months restoring full function.
An apicoectomy is generally a permanent and cost-effective solution which can help the tooth last for the rest of your life.
Removal of the very end of the root is called apicoectomy. In this procedure, the dentist opens the gingival tissue near the tooth to examine the underlying bone and to remove any inflamed or infected tissue. A small filling may be placed in the root to seal the end of the root canal, and a few stitches or sutures are placed in the gingiva to help the tissue heal properly. Over a period of months, the bone heals around the end of the root.
Because this procedure is often performed with the aid of a microscope and other small specialized tools, it's considered a type of endodontic microsurgery.

3 stages of procedure
The first stage is a proper understanding of the extent of infection. Your endodontist examines the tooth and takes X-rays of the affected tooth. This lets him get a picture of the extent of the damage.
Local anaesthetics make the procedure comfortable. Following the procedure there may be some discomfort and/or swelling while the incision heals. This is normal for any surgical procedure. To alleviate any discomfort, an appropriate pain medication will be prescribed.
Our highly qualified and experienced dental team is committed to satisfying our patients' restorative and aesthetic goals and making their experience enjoyable in Allure MedSpa’s pleasant surroundings.
Given that the extent of infection and the condition and temperament of each patient is different, endodontic treatments entail a customised treatment and not a standard one for all patients.
Possible Consequences / Precautions
You may feel some discomfort or experience slight swelling while the incision heals. This is normal for any surgical procedure. The dentist will recommend appropriate pain medication to alleviate your discomfort. With 100% dedicated care, expert recommendation and sophisticated technology, we remove any predictable risk and ensure the desired results.
