What Is An Apicoectomy?


The dental procedure of an apicoectomy is also known as a root-end resection. Apicoectomies are a common dental surgical procedure that removes the apex of the tooth, or the very tip of the root of the tooth.

This procedure maintains the integrity and use of your natural tooth while also removing any infection that may have been caused by a root canal. An apicoectomy may also be performed because root canals are an option.

During the procedure, an apicoectomy specialist opens the gum tissue near the infected tooth to reveal underlying bone and tissue. The apex of the tooth and any surrounding infection is removed. Then a filling is used to seal the end of the root canal, and the area is stitched closed.

An apicoectomy is a routine microsurgery performed quickly with minimal recovery time. Patients can expect to return to normal activities the next day.

Dr Brockbank exceeded my expectations. I was a bit nervous and he was kind and professional and made me feel comfortable. Greater Endo is top-notch and I would recommend them to all my friends and family to get their root canals done there if they ever needed one!

I was in so much pain from an infection I had. I needed a root canal and they got me in quickly, right before the weekend. I have a lot of anxiety around dental work (from previous bad experiences) but Dr LeCheminant made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Him and his team answered all my questions and worked quickly ...

If this had been the first and only endodontist I had ever been to, it would have saved me a lot of trouble. Dr Brockbank has worked on me several times and has always been very professional, empathetic, and meticulous in his work; which is important with my complex teeth and dental history. He has also found and corre...

Dr Facer and his assistant Magen are the best! Magen answered the phone on a Sunday and fit me in the next morning before the office even opened. Dr Facer was so kind and explained everything and answered all my questions and concerns. I highly recommend them!

Best customer service, high end technology and nice and friendly staff. Dr. LeCheminant was kind and considerate, and very proficient explaining about my root canal issue and what needs to be done, which helped me feel less stressed about it. Staff are also well experienced and helpfully. I highly recommend them.

Amazing staff ranging from Abby at the front, to Francis to Dr. Facer. State of the art equipment, their appointments are unusually efficient and their care is at the top of the heap. I went in quite nervous about 4 root canals. The vibe and equipment calmed my concerns immediately, but hearing Francis sing with the of...

I had the greatest dental experience today seeing Dr. Brockbank and the amazing dental assistant (can't remember her name but she's amazing). They let me explain what was going on and listened carefully about my concerns of my anxiety. They reassured me that they'd make me comfortable enough to not have a panic attack....

10 stars if I could! My family member had a root canal retreated with Dr. LeCheminant. The procedure quick and painless! The doctor was informative and comforting and his assistant (Kim), was amazing as well. The Murray practice is beautiful and southing. They clearly work well as a team, and it shows!

— Crystal, Posted January 24th 2023 on google
I went to a new dentist for a regular cleaning and was told I needed a root canal and had 8 cavities - quoted $4900. Outside of having one cavity my entire life, I have NEVER had any issues with my teeth. So, I was shocked. I ended up getting a second opinion who referred me to greater Endo. Their 3D CT scans can see m...

Questions About Apicoectomy

As with any medical procedure, you’ll have questions about what it is, how it works and what the recovery period is like. We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about apicoectomies and their accompanying answers.


It’s likely you’ll need an apicoectomy if you’ve had an unsuccessful root canal or the root of your troublesome tooth is very infected. An apicoectomy is the best procedure and alternative to saving and preserving the integrity of your tooth.

The procedure itself is not painful as you are under sedation and the area is numbed. Apicoectomies are meant to alleviate pain, as they remove the infected part of your tooth. After the procedure, however, it’s normal to feel some pain in the area. This pain can be remedied by taking some ibuprofen when needed. You may feel some soreness in the area for another week or so after the procedure, but it will fade away in time.

At Greater Endodontics, the main goal is to save teeth. Infected teeth are typically treated with root canals, but for some patients this treatment is not successful or possible. So instead, a second root canal is performed to completely remove any lingering infection. However, when the infection is significant or has spread to the root tip of the tooth, an apicoectomy is preferable.

Before and after your procedure, we will go over aftercare instructions so that you can better facilitate healing and minimize pain. You can expect the area to be fully healed within three weeks after the procedure. Some time after the three weeks, you’ll have a follow up with your apicoectomy specialist.

Greater Endodontics offers competitive pricing. Each patient's needs are different and each patient has different insurance policies/coverage, so it’s best to schedule a consultation for accurate pricing information when considering an apicoectomy. We accept most major dental insurance plans and offer interest-free payment plans with CareCredit.

If you have any other questions that have not been addressed on this page, we encourage you to give us a call so we can better assist you.
