Heal Your Tooth With a Stress-Free Procedure

Apicoectomy involves accessing the tip of the tooth’s root and removing a small portion along with the infected tissue. Like a standard root canal, the objective is to save your tooth and help you avoid an extraction.

Dr. Albert Goerig leads our practice and has decades of experience. He teaches clinical techniques to other endodontists across North America. You can trust his experience, and his chosen team of endodontist specialists. They have the expertise and training to successfully perform your procedure.

Our endodontists use advanced techniques and technologies to ensure your procedure is successful and stress-free. Our 3-D imaging technology allows us to see everything we need to plan the procedure. A laser allows for complete and comfortable removal of the infection, while preserving more of your dental structure. The laser also emits less sound and sensation than other instruments.

Here is what you can expect during treatment:

  • A local anesthetic is administered to ensure you won’t feel a thing. You can also opt for sedation if you’d like.
  • Your endodontist will make a small incision in the gums to access the root tip. The infected tissue is cleared away using laser technology.
  • A small portion of the root is removed. The inside portion and the surrounding area are thoroughly disinfected. A small filling restores the root end for protection.
  • We’ll close the surgical area and give you aftercare instructions to protect the treatment area and encourage the healing process.
