Apicoectomy is also known as root end surgery. Root end filling, is an endodontic surgical procedure where a tooth’s root tip is removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a material.
This is usually necessitated when a conventional root canal therapy had failed and a re-treatment was already unsuccessful or is not advised. State-of-the-art procedures make use of microsurgical techniques, such as a dental operating microscopes, micro instruments, ultrasonic preparation tips and calcium-silicate based filling materials.
Removal of the root tip is indicated to remove the entire apical delta ensuring no uncleaned missed anatomy.
