Surgical Solutions for Tooth Infections

When dealing with a localized infection in a specific area of your tooth, an apicoectomy can provide the precise solution you need. Unlike a root canal procedure that involves the complete removal of infected tooth pulp, an apicoectomy focuses on targeted treatment by removing only the tip of the infected root and effectively sealing it. By preserving a portion of the pulp, there is potential for natural regeneration without infection. At Jersey Shore Endodontics, our skilled team specializes in performing apicoectomy procedures with precision and care, ensuring the best outcome for your oral well-being.
