The anatomy inside of the teeth can vary from one person to the next. Inside our teeth, a central chamber of delicate vital tissues extends down into the jaws through one or multiple roots. Sometimes, these roots can branch out and take unexpected turns, or become increasingly narrow in certain areas. When there is an issue with the vital tissues inside of the tooth, root canal therapy is the standard approach for treatment. However, in cases of complex root structure and other anomalies, traditional root canal therapy may not be sufficient to treat and an additional surgical procedure is required. By performing an apicoectomy, your Milford endodontist can access the canals of the tooth from the tip of the root. In this procedure, a small portion of the root tip, which is also known as the apex—is carefully removed, along with any damaged tissue around the tooth. At our office, we make use of the state-of-the-art in diagnostic technology and treatment instrumentation, to plan and perform your procedure with the utmost exactitude. Depending on the complexities particular to your tooth, Dr. Lawley may use a variety of high-precision tools in tandem with a surgical operating microscope to gently and safely perform your procedure.
