Apicoectomy is an invasive surgery, performed at the root apex (root tip) in the event of a granulation tissue (infection) at the root of a tooth.
It is done in order to save a tooth whose only alternative is extraction.
Dental granuloma is formed due to the infiltration of bacteria in the root tip and the bone around it. If the infection at the root of a tooth is not treated, it will evolve and lead to the formation of a cyst that may affect adjacent teeth.

When we use it?

An apicoectomy is performed when a nonsurgical treatment fails, specifically in case of failure of an endodontic treatment, retreatment, or even if there is an obstacle on the root that can't be resolved performing an endodontic treatment or in case of horizontal fractures in the apex.
It is done in order to save a tooth whose only alternative is extraction.

Treatment alternatives

Root Canal Treatment
The best alternative to a apicoectomy is a root canal treatment under microscopic control. The microscope provides uniform lighting field, even inside the tooth root, and magnification up to 21x, which most often resolve the infection without any apicoectomy.


Extraction and Dental implant
In many situations, a dental implant is a better solution than a apicoectomy. The apicoectomy itself is an invasive procedure that removes a portion of the tooth root and from the adjacent bone, bone extremely difficult to reconstruct. Also, most often the incision of the apicectomy leaves a scar on the gum. If we assume that the tooth in question has other problems, because an infection on the root appears only after other destructions, the tooth should be evaluated carefully and see what pillar remains after resection. In many situations, after o series of interventions on the same tooth, the result is a tooth with a poor prognosis in time, much weaker than a dental implant.
