Endodontic surgeries are the combined term given for all the procedures that involves pulp less or periodontically involved tooth, requiring root amputation or endodontic therapy.
Endodontic surgeries are highly specialized treatments. We at the Dental Specialists have the best endodontists who have experience in the surgical procedures.
Endodontic surgery is recommended when a root canal-treated tooth continues to have infection, abscesses, or persistent symptoms, or when traditional root canal therapy is not feasible due to complex root anatomy.
Endodontic surgery has a high success rate, typically exceeding 90%. However, individual outcomes can vary, and our dentist will discuss your specific case with you.
The duration of endodontic surgery varies depending on the complexity of the case but generally takes one to two hours.
During endodontic surgery, the dentist accesses the root tip through a small incision in the gum tissue, removes the infected or damaged tissue, cleans the area, and seals it with a filling. The gum tissue is then sutured back in place.
