Best Endodontic Surgeons

The procedures that come under endodontic surgery are

  • Incision and Drainage – This is indicated when pus is accumulated within the soft tissue and alveolar bone. A horizontal incision is made at the base of the fluctuant area. This relieves the pressure and causes a discharge of pus.
  • Trephination – Cortical trephination is a procedure involving perforation of the cortical plate to accomplish release of pressure from the accumulation of exudate in the alveolar bone.
  • Apicoectomy – Also known as root end resection. It is the removal of only the root tip and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material. This is done when only the apical portion of a tooth root is infected.
  • Hemisection – It is the sectioning or cutting of the tooth. This is done when only one half of the tooth is damaged while other half can be preserved.
  • Root Resection – Removal of a single tooth root only. It is done only in multi rooted teeth. This is done when infection begins apically and infects the root before the crown is affected.
