An opening is made in the crown of the tooth. This allows access to the root canal system. It is very important to have a large enough opening to find all the canals inside a tooth. Anatomy inside the tooth is variable. Some teeth have just one canal like most upper front teeth. Premolars usually have 1 or 2.
During an apicoectomy, an incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the bone and surrounding inflamed tissue. The damaged tissue is removed along with the end of the root tip. A root-end filling is placed to prevent reinfection of the root and the gum is sutured.
Our doctors treat a variety of problems that result from traumatic dental emergencies injuries, such as tooth avulsion and dislodged teeth.
