Despite root canals being highly effective and reliable, there are some situations in which they simply won’t be able to do the trick. If an infection has spread to the roots of a tooth and has begun damaging your oral tissues, we may recommend an apicoectomy. Our friendly and understanding team of professionals at Metropolitan Endodontics knows how daunting it can be to find out that you need an oral surgery, especially if you’ve never had one before. We’ll be there for you throughout the entire process, and we’re always happy to accommodate you in any way we can.
Endodontists are able to perform a wide range of surgeries to remove infection and restore teeth. They can divide a tooth in half, repair a damaged root of a tooth, or even remove a root if necessary. The surgery you require depends on a variety of factors that our team will examine during your appointment, including how far the infection has spread and the severity of dental damage that you have sustained. We make sure to thoroughly and effectively describe treatment plans and always welcome questions if you have any.
