An apicoectomy, or root-end resection, is often the last resort to save a tooth that has often already been treated with traditional root canal therapy.

FAQs about endodontic surgery

What is an apicoectomy?

An apicoectomy involves surgically removing the tip of a tooth’s root and sealing it off. We usually perform it when a standard root canal treatment is not sufficient.

Is apicoectomy painful?

We prioritize your comfort at all times. We perform Salem endodontic surgeries using local anesthesia, and post-operative discomfort is typically minimal and manageable with medication.

What can I expect during the procedure?

  • A thorough consultation and detailed imaging for precise treatment planning.
  • A comfortable, anxiety-free experience with local anesthesia.
  • Minimally invasive surgical techniques for targeted treatment.
  • Post-operative care instructions for quick recovery.

How long does recovery take?

Recovery times can vary, but most patients return to their normal activities within a few days, with proper care and follow-up.

What are the success rates of apicoectomy?

Apicoectomy has a high success rate, especially when performed by experienced endodontists using advanced techniques.

How do I know if I need an apicoectomy?

One of our experienced endodontists will recommend an apicoectomy only if it’s the best option to save your tooth after thoroughly assessing the situation.


Kind words from our patients

The whole staff was welcoming and pleasant. Mary and Doctor Garden were very thorough using state-of-the-art equipment to check my cracked molar. Clearly, this practice is excellent at the work and instills confidence in patient care.

BEST experience! Dr. Garden has such patience and is so kind. I never felt her numb me. The entire staff is helpful and the office is beautiful and clean! No one likes to have dental procedures, but they make it easy!

Dr. Garden and her staff were so friendly and communicative during every step and always made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedures. The office was recently renovated and looks so beautiful, clean, and welcoming! Definitely recommend Dr. Garden and her staff!
