Apical Surgery

In rare cases traditional root canals are unable to adequately treat a tooth and symptoms can persist. This may be due to issues such as very unique anatomy or limitations present from previous procedures. In these cases we are able to treat the tooth surgically.....A small incision is made, the infected portion of the root and surrounding infection is directly removed, then the root tip is sealed with a medicated material, sutures are placed and the area is allowed to heal.
