We’ve all heard of root canals, but are you familiar with an apicoectomy? An apicoectomy is a term for endodontic surgery on the tip of a tooth root. This procedure is most often done with a root canal has failed and endodontic retreatment is not possible. There are many reasons an apicoectomy may be necessary, including the following:
-A fracture or crack on the tooth roots
-Small braches of the root canal that cannot be cleaned and sealed
-An un-cleaned, blocked root canal
-A curved root canal that prevents endodontic tools from reaching the tip of the root
