Endodontic Microsurgery (Apical Surgery)

Endodontic microsurgery is a highly effective treatment for complex cases, such as a failed root canal, persistent infections as well as cervical resorption. We offer a unique referral service for dental surgeries, with our experienced and qualified endodontist Dr. Mitra Eli providing first-class endodontic microsurgery that is usually only available through a hospital.

What is Endodontic Microsurgery?

Endodontic microsurgery is where an incision is made through the gum to access the root of the tooth. Traditional root treatment accesses the root through the tooth, but in complex and problematic cases, it will be necessary to approach the problem from a different angle. The infected tissue at the root can then be removed, and a root-end filling is then used to seal the canal. The treatment is carried out while the patient is awake, but with local anaesthetic for a painless treatment.

How Apical Microsurgery Works?

Apical microsurgery works by removing the infected tissue from the end of the root. This can usually be treated through a traditional root canal procedure, but sometimes persistent and repeating infections require further treatment to resolve the issue. Carefully removing the infected tissue, with minimal trauma to the surrounding areas, allows for a swift and successful recovery.
