Dental apicectomy or apical resection is a surgical procedure to remove part of the root of an infected tooth. It is usually indicated when a dental infection does not heal after a root treatment or after a resumption of root treatment, in order to avoid tooth extraction.


The process of an apicectomy

  • Anesthesia : Before starting the procedure, the dentist will anesthetize you to make sure you won’t feel any pain.
  • Mucosa incision and bone access cavity to access the infected root.
  • Removal of the infected apex (root tip): The dentist will remove the infection using special instruments to remove the infected part of the root.
  • Space filling: Once the infection is removed, the dentist will fill the empty space with a special filler.
  • Sutures: The dentist will close the wound using stitches to hold the mucosa in place during healing.

Post-operative care

After a dental apicoectomy, you may experience pain and discomfort for a few days. Your dentist will prescribe pain-relief medications and provide guidance on how to care for your tooth during the healing period. It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions to ensure a quick and complication-free recovery.

Follow-up after a dental apicoectomy may include check-up visits and X-rays to assess the condition of the tooth and ensure it is healing properly.
