Does your tooth hurt months or even years after having a root canal? On rare occasions, the nonsurgical endodontic procedure may not be sufficient enough to save a tooth from extraction or falling out due to a badly decayed tooth that could have been treated. Some of the factors leading to an unsuccessful endodontic treatment include a minuscule dental fracture, a narrow dental canal filled with calcium deposits, or a tooth that did not heal correctly.
Luckily, an apicoectomy can help resolve your dental stress and pain.
Your endodontist may recommend a dental surgery, apicoectomy, to help end your dental suffering. An apicoectomy is essentially the last resort when a nonsurgical procedure has failed.
