Apicoectomy (root end surgery)
Despite modern technology, the latest findings in dentistry and carefully performed procedures, it is sometimes impossible to reach and eliminate inflammation completely especially in the root end.
In order to save the tooth and prevent the inflammation from spreading, the root end has to be removed surgically.
In root canal treatment, the tip of the root is exposed and removed in a surgical procedure under local anaesthetic.
With root end surgery, the tooth can often be saved despite pronounced inflammation. The inflamed lower third of the root along with the inflamed tissue is removed, disinfected and the treated area hermetically resealed with a special root filling.
The preparation for the filling for the root canal treatment is carried out using ultrasound instruments with the aid of optical magnifiers.
