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.

Fifteen months ago I had a root canal at a different endodontist in Salt Lake. Ever since that time, my teeth had been in pain. For the past twelve months I have visited with the team at Greater Endodontics four seperate times, specifically with Dr. Matt LeCheminant. Even though the problem was not readily apparent and...

This place was awesome. Very helpful and comfortable. Best part about was the doc is a 49ers fan. Watched Netflix the entire time. The only thing that was missing is a shot and a Beer.

I had a very easy going time during my procedure. I really enjoyed the TV mounted to ceiling! It made the visit go much faster and I wasn’t concerned with what they were doing. Great place!

I was referred to Dr. Facer after sustaining a fractured tooth in a biking accident. The staff was friendly, supportive, and great at communicating everything that was going on. Dr. Facer completed a phenomenal root canal on my tooth, all while dealing with the complicated factor of me having a broken jaw/limited openi...

Dr. Brockbank and his assistant could not have been more caring during my emergency root canal, making certain that I felt no pain during the procedure. I was highly impressed with Dr. Brockbank’s professionalism and skills as a dental surgeon. I very much appreciate their office working with my dentist to find an ap...

I'm so glad I went here. I can't say I enjoyed it or that it was comfortable but I had a tooth with really deep roots and I kept burning through the anesthesia. I think I counted 8 shots before I was done. However, I believe anyone else would have made this uncomfortable experience incredibly painful. Fortunately, ...

I got in on short notice for a root canal. So grateful that they worked through lunch to help me out! Very friendly staff!

I've had a lot of root canals and dental work - like a LOT. My regular dentist was in the middle of crowning a tooth when it was determined that I needed an urgent root canal. Greater Endodontics had me in and the root canal completed less than 24 hours later and were SO gentle and SO clean. The office is very comforta...

The office staff was friendly and helpful upon my first call through my appointment and checkout. Dr Facer was very experienced, kind, compassionate and honest about a treatment plan and gave me multiple options. I highly recommend Greater Endodontics.
— Jennie Johnson, Posted July 2nd 2021 on google
I had an intensive root canal re-treatment today... something that was possibly going to require a more extensive surgical procedure. Dr. LeCheminant was excellent!! He listened to my concerns and anxieties, answered questions, made adjustments and accommodations to keep me calm and did excellent work! This probably s...

Needed an emergency root canal and they were able to accommodate me. Excellent, friendly staff and the Dr. Brockbank made sure I had absolutely no pain while he performed a very deep root canal. Thank you so much!!!

A great experience in every way. I particularly appreciated the way that the procedures were explained to me in advance as well as during treatment.

Only pain was the numbing shots. Procedure was done quickly and efficiently. Recovery has caused no pain. 10/10
— Hannah Elder, Posted May 25th 2021 on google
Honestly, the worst part was the mental anxiety I put on myself before I went in. I feel like an idiot after going through the process and finding out how easy, fast and painless it was. I highly recommend.
— Aaron Wernli, Posted May 20th 2021 on google
I had an issue with an unfinished root canal and ended up being referred to Greater Endo. I was very nervous, but Dr LeCheminant was so kind and helpful.

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.
