If you have a pain in your tooth, but it was undetected on X-rays during your non surgical treatment, Endodontics surgery is used to examine the entire root of your infected tooth. Endodontic surgery is performed to find the small fractures, hidden canals and to remove infected pulp from the tooth roots. Endodontics surgery is also performed to remove calcium deposits in root canals, and to treat damaged root surfaces or surrounding bone.
Prior to your Endodontics surgery our doctor will make you feel comfortable by applying local anesthesia to numb the tooth. By using digital imagining and operating microscope doctor will open the gum tissue near the tooth to see the underlying bone and to remove inflamed pulp under the root. Fillings are placed to seal the end of the root canal and stitches are placed to help the tissue heal. After a few months, the bone will heal around the bottom of the root. After the surgery discomfort is generally mild and patients can go to their normal activities.
