If a pulp infection returns after a root canal procedure, an apioectomy is required. An accumulation of infected nerve endings may not be removed in its entirety during a scheduled root canal. An apioectomy involves removing the root of your tooth and replacing its contents with a filling.
To begin treatment, we will numb the affected area with local anesthesia. Your specialist will make a minimal incision in your gum tissue in order to uncover your tooth’s root. The infected tissue will be removed and cleansed in its entirety. The dentist will use a magnifying instrument to place the filling and gauze will be applied to prevent bleeding. Depending on the nature of your surgery, we may provide you with dissolving sutures or they must be removed at our office a few days after the procedure.
