Home / Our Services / Apicoectomy


An initial consultation is necessary to perform a clinical and radiographic examination to assess whether or not it is indicated to proceed with an apicoectomy. In certain cases, a three-dimensional radiograph (3D) may be necessary which can be taken at the office.

The apicoectomy consists of cleaning the infection at the tip of the root of a tooth followed by the placement of a sealant.

In the cases where the origin of the infection is the root tip of the tooth (apex), this technique has shown good results and allows preservation of the tooth for a longer period of time.

In cases where the prognosis of the tooth remains poor, extraction of the affected tooth may be an option.
