ratings and reviews)
An apicoectomy may be needed when an infection develops or persists after root canal treatment,or retreatment. During root canal treatment, the canals are cleaned, and inflamed or infected tissue is removed. Root canals are very complex, with many small branches off the main canal. Sometimes, even after root canal treatment, infected debris can remain in these branches and possibly prevent healing or cause re-infection later. In an apicoectomy, the root tip, or apex, is removed along with the infected tissue by the dentist. A filling is then placed to seal the end of the root. An apicoectomy treatment is sometimes called endodontic microsurgery because the procedure is done under an operating microscope. Most apicoectomies take 30 to 90 minutes. The length will depend on the location of the tooth and the complexity of the root structure. Endodontic surgical Procedures on front teeth are generally the shortest. Those on lower molars generally take the longest. Microsurgical endodontist will tell you which medicines to take and what you can eat or drink. You should apply ice to the area, alternating 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Do this for 10 to 12 hours after the surgery, and rest during this time. The area may bruise and swell. It may be more swollen the second day after the procedure than the first day. Any pain usually can be controlled with over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin and others). In some cases, you may be given a prescription for pain medicine. If so, follow the instructions for taking it.
