Apiceptomy

ApiceptomyWhat It's Used For...If a root canal procedure has been done in the past and it becomes infected again, it's often because of a problem near the apex of the root. In many cases, a second root canal treatment is considered before an apicoectomy. With advances in technology, dentists often can detect other canals that were not adequately treated. In this case, they may be able to clear up the infection by doing a second root canal procedure. This will avoid the need for an apicoectomy.An apicoectomy is done only after a tooth has had at least one root canal procedure and retreatment has not been successful or is not possible.
