Apicetomy Oral Surgery

Apicetomy is a procedure where the infected tooth is treated by the surgical removal of the root tip (apex) and sealing of the root tip with a retro grade filling.

Apicetomy can take between 1-2 hours. Your dentist will numb the area and the tooth before surgery. This procedure is carried out under local anesthesia but occasionally, you may require conscious IV sedation.


Apicetomies are indicated when:
