Buffalo Root Canal Specialist Discusses an Apicoectomy

If you’ve previously had a root canal, you may be having difficulty with it for one reason or another. It might start to become re-infected, or maybe you’ve had a lot of work done on the tooth – whether it was a bridge or a post or extensive restorative work. One option I can use to help take care of that infection as a Buffalo Root Canal Specialist is a local surgery called an apicoectomy. First, we numb the area, just as if you were having a filling or a regular root canal. Then, we can actually work down from the top of the tooth to remove the source of your infection and perform a reverse root canal while we’re looking through a microscope.
