Sometimes teeth that have had root canal treatment may still continue to show signs of infection and cause pain. This may be due to the complex anatomy in the very tip of the root harbouring bacteria that cannot be removed by conventional root canal treatment. The aim of an apicectomy procedure is to surgically access the tip of the root of the tooth and remove it along with any associated infection. The remaining end of the root is cleaned out using very precise piezosurgery instruments after which it is filled and the site closed with some stitches. We the latest in piezosurgery instrumentation to help ensure this procedure can be carried out accurately and with a high probability of success. The hope is that the surgery enables the source of the ongoing infection to be removed and that it promotes healing of the site. Thus the tooth which they would of otherwise have to have had extracted can be saved.

Our team of oral surgeons have thousands of hours of operating experience which enables them to approach apicectomies carefully and effectively for their patients. This helps to reduce procedure time and trauma as well as decreasing the risk of complications during or after surgery.

Our peaceful and relaxed environment here at the centre will allow you to have your surgery in as comfortable an environment as possible. You can lay back and watch a movie on our ceiling-mounted screens tucked in with a warm blanket whilst we perform your surgery which is usually done with a profound local anaesthetic.
