Apicoectomy FAQs


  1. How do I know if I 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 to save the tooth. This procedure is a commonly performed microsurgery that removes the apex (or root tip) of the tooth and any infected surrounding tissue.
  2. How painful is an apicoectomy?
    An apicoectomy is performed to alleviate the pain associated with an infected tooth and root. During the procedure, you will feel no pain as our endodontist office will numb the area and sedate you so you are relaxed. Pain is normal 1-3 days after the procedure but can be managed with ibuprofen. The area may be sore for another week or so as the tooth heals, but the pain will gradually subside.
  3. How long does it take to heal from an apicoectomy?
    Patients will be asked to follow aftercare instructions (let's link here to the apicoectomy aftercare page) to facilitate healing. The area should be completely healed within three weeks and patients will follow up with their apicoectomy specialist around this time.
  4. How much does an apicoectomy cost?
    We offer competitive pricing at our office. As each patient's needs are different, it is best to schedule a consultation for accurate pricing information. We accept most major dental insurance plans and offer interest-free payment plans with CareCredit.
