Apicoectomy
Apicoectomy (Root End Surgery)

Sometimes the infection persists even after root canal therapy. In these cases, an apicoectomy, or root end resection can be performed to remove infected tissue.

  1. An incision is made to allow access to the base of the tooth. The inflamed or infected pulp is treated and the canals are carefully cleaned and shaped.
  2. A small filling may be placed in the remaining tip of the tooth to seal the root canal.
  3. The gum tissue is stitched back into place.

    To Dr. Lee and all his front and back office staff,

    I went to your office at 8AM on Monday the 15th. I needed help for an irritating toothache. Even though I was a first time patient, you took me in immediately. I was treated with concern and kindness by everyone. You solved my problem and I appreciate it. Thank you for everything.
