Apicectomy - helping you to save your tooth
If you have a failing tooth as a result of decay, damage or trauma an apicectomy may be the last chance of restoring the tooth. This surgical procedure involves removing the end of the tooth root and sealing it with a filling to resolve and prevent infection. As a last resort this procedure will only be performed once all other methods of saving the tooth have been exhausted. You will likely have a root treatment attempted at least twice before an apicectomy is attempted.
