Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges and takes less than an hour. For more information on root canal treatment at our endodontic office, please visit our root canal page.
Root Canal Surgery / Apicoectomy
Endodontic (root canal) surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces of the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is called an apicoectomy. An apicoectomy will not be preform on an initial visit. A retreatment (re doing) of the initial root canal treatment will most likely be attempted first before any surgical procedure. An evaluation is always needed prior to any surgical/apico appointment at our practice. For more information on root canal surgery, an apicoectomy, please visit our root canal surgery page.
