Apicoectomy Surgery

Explainer Video

Apicoectomy surgery (also known as root-end) is a specialized dental procedure aimed at treating infections and inflammations at the tip of a tooth’s root. This surgery is typically considered when a traditional root canal treatment fails or the infection reoccurs. The procedure involves the removal of the root tip along with any infected tissue, followed by the sealing of the root end to prevent future infections. Apicoectomy is a crucial intervention for preserving a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted, thereby maintaining the tooth’s functionality and the patient’s oral health.

Apicoectomy Surgery Procedures

The apicoectomy process involves several key steps:
1. Initial Examination

Detailed assessment and imaging to diagnose the condition and plan the surgery.

2. Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is administered to ensure the patient's comfort.

3. Incision and Flap Creation

A small incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the bone and root tip.

4. Removal of Infected Tissue

The infected root tip and surrounding tissue are carefully removed.

5. Root-End Filling

The root end is sealed with a biocompatible material to prevent reinfection.

6. Suture

The gum is sutured back into place to allow for healing.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

An apicoectomy is surgery done to remove the root tip of a tooth and surrounding infected tissue when a root canal alone cannot resolve the infection. It saves the tooth that would otherwise need extraction.

A root canal disinfects inside the tooth root canal. An apicoectomy involves surgically accessing the root tip from outside the tooth to remove diseased tissue that a root canal could not reach.

Typical post-operative recovery involves mild swelling, discomfort, numbness, bruising, and stiffness for a few days as the surgical site heals. Prescription pain medication helps manage discomfort.

Apicoectomy surgery is typically completed in around 1 hour or less depending on the tooth and complexity. The entire appointment including anesthesia may be 1-2 hours.

The area will be numbed with local anesthesia so the procedure should not be painful. Some residual soreness is common once the anesthesia wears off after the surgery.

Studies show over 90% success rates for apicoectomies and symptom-free long-term when performed appropriately on teeth with localized infections at the apex.
