Before Image


An apicoectomy is an endodontic microsurgery procedure that removes the infected or inflamed tissue from the tip of a tooth's root, also known as the "apex." A small filling is then placed at the apex of the root to seal the area and prevent further infection.

Laser Therapy

We understand that endodontic treatment can be stressful. That's why we incorporate laser therapy to make your treatment seamless, precise, and comfortable.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) is a technique that can be used in endodontic microsurgery to promote the regeneration of tissue that has been lost or damaged due to decay. It’s all in an effort to craft a stronger foundation for a healthier smile!

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting involves the placement of bone or bone-like materials in areas where bone loss has occurred due to infection or damage. This technique helps to regenerate and stabilize the bone around the tooth's root, creating a stronger foundation for successful root canal treatments and preserving your natural tooth. By promoting tissue growth and healing, bone grafting enhances the potential for long-term tooth retention and overall oral health.

The Benefits of Endodontic Microsurgery

Precise Treatment, Successful Outcomes

Endodontic microsurgery uses a microscope and other advanced equipment to ensure the most precise and delicate treatment possible. This results in a high success rate for your root canal and saves your tooth from being extracted.

Minimal Discomfort, Quick Recovery

Because of the precision of the procedure, endodontic microsurgery often results in minimal discomfort and a quick recovery process.

Preservation of Natural Tooth

Endodontic microsurgery is an effective method for preserving natural teeth, which can help to maintain your bite, speech, and smile. It also can prevent the need for more extensive and costly procedures, such as a dental implant or bridge.

The Endodontic Microsurgery Process

Access and Cleaning

The first step of endodontic microsurgery is to access the affected area of the tooth. This is typically done by making a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth and its roots. The endodontist in Charlotte, NC will then use specialized equipment to carefully clean and disinfect the area, removing any infected or inflamed tissue.

Repair and Seal

After the area has been thoroughly cleaned, the endodontist will repair any damage and seal the roots of the tooth. This may involve filling or sealing any cracked or damaged roots, or placing a small filling at the apex of the root to seal the area and prevent further infection.

Closure and Recovery

The final step of endodontic microsurgery is to close the incision in the gum tissue and allow the area to heal. This typically involves suturing the incision closed and placing a temporary filling in the tooth. You will then need to return for follow-up care to monitor the healing process and ensure that the tooth is functioning properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Endodontic microsurgery is typically performed under local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Patients may experience some mild discomfort or soreness after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Recovery time after endodontic microsurgery can vary depending on the complexity of the procedure. However, most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days and can expect a full recovery within 2-4 weeks. Our Charlotte endodontist can help you answer any specific questions you have.
