What is Endodontic Surgery?
Endodontic surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals previously undetected on X-rays during the initial treatment. Surgery may also be needed to remove calcium deposits in root canals or treat damaged root surfaces/ surrounding bone of the tooth.
Modern technology such as digital imaging and operating microscopes make it so that this surgery can be quick, comfortable and effective. The most common endodontic surgery is called an apicoectomy, or root-end surgery.
