Apical surgery is also known as an “apicectomy”. It is a term used to describe a surgical procedure to treat infections that cannote managed with conventional endodontic (re-)treatment.
The main goal of apical surgery is to prevent bacterial leakage from the root-canal system into the periradicular tissues by placing a tight root-end filling following root-end resection.
In this procedure, the doctor opens the gum tissue near the tooth to see the underlying bone and removes any inflamed or infected tissue. The very end of the root is also removed.
Then a small filling is placed in the root to seal the end of the root canal, and a few stitches or sutures are placed in the gingiva to help the tissue heal properly.
We highly recommended to get Bone graft and PRF for faster postsurgical healing and regeneration of the bone.
