At Laser Endodontic Care LLC, we prioritize offering advanced and specialized treatments to ensure the best oral health outcomes for our patients. Among these is the apicoectomy, a key procedure in the field of endodontic surgery. This specialized dental surgery becomes necessary when a root canal treatment fails to resolve an infection in the tooth’s root or in cases where a root canal is not possible. An apicoectomy involves the removal of the tooth’s root tip, along with the infected tissue, followed by sealing the end of the root canal, thereby preventing further infection.
Patients considering an apicoectomy at our office can expect a highly skilled procedure with minimal discomfort. Our practice employs state-of-the-art technology and techniques to ensure the procedure is precise and effective. The recovery period is generally quick, with most patients returning to their normal activities within a few days, and our team provides comprehensive post-operative care instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery.
The benefits of an apicoectomy include:
- Effective removal of infection, alleviating symptoms and preventing recurrence
- Preservation of the natural tooth, avoiding the need for extraction and replacement
- Enhanced oral health and comfort
- A high success rate, making it a reliable option for long-term tooth preservation
