To make an appointment


Root apex resection (Apicoectomy) is an endodontic operation in which the apex of the tooth root is removed, as well as the surrounding tissues if they are affected by infection. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia. The vertex is accessed by removing the gum tissue and penetrating the infection directly through the bone. The resection of the tooth is carried out under a microscope and ends with the retrograde filling of the canal.

A resection of the root apex is recommended in the following cases:

  • Anatomical problems that prevent proper cleaning and filling of the canal.
  • Problems with the dentures of the affected teeth
  • Horizontal root fractures with apical necrosis
  • Obstructions in the length of the root canal that cannot be removed with endodontic treatment
  • Procedural errors in endodontic treatment
  • Severe periapical lesions that do not heal with root canal treatment

Performing surgical treatment and contraindications

Generally, root apex resection can be performed for all types of teeth, but indications can be nuanced based on the anatomical location of the tooth roots, maxilla, and adjacent anatomical cavities.

This operation is performed in a dental clinic and does not require the use of sophisticated instruments. Usually, local anaesthesia is used or in some cases (patients with an aggravated situation) general anaesthesia can be used. Even under local anaesthesia, the procedure is not painful.

Immediately after the root resection procedure, the patient will suffer from local oedema and mild bleeding for several days. If the oedema does not go away after some time, but only intensifies and there is severe toothache, this will indicate the presence of purulent complications. To prevent such complications, the doctor must use the appropriate medications. The patient will be advised to avoid chewing food on the affected area until everything has healed.

The price of the procedure will be determined based on the complexity of the work that the doctor must perform and this, in turn, will depend on the situation of the patient’s oral cavity.
