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.

I can't say enough good about Dr Curtis Brimley and his assistant. I had a complicated root canal and he was the only one that was able to complete it, He is a master. I would never go to anyone else. I was told I would have to have my tooth extracted and after others had attempted it and failed, they even called me...

I appreciated Dr. Casper's knowledge and explaining to me my options and also offering his advice on how we should approach a problematic tooth due to the error of another. I'm optimistic we made the right decision.

Very friendly and professional.
— jim bowers, Posted June 7th 2024 on google
Dr. Brimley did a fantastic job on my root canal and I had only had to take a few tylenol for pain towards the evening. I felt priviledge to sit in a brand new chair. I was thinking maybe the next chair should have a small massage link to it. I would highly recommend Dr. Brimley plus he knows a little about plumbin...

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.
