Apicoectomy (Root End Surgery)

Root end surgery, also known as apicoectomy, is an endodontic procedure in which a tooth’s root tip is surgically removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material.

This is usually necessary when a conventional root canal therapy has failed and a re-treatment is unsuccessful or not advised. State of the art endo-surgical procedures make use of microsurgical techniques, such as a dental operating microscope, micro instruments, ultrasonic preparation tips and calcium-silicate based filling materials.
