For patients who receive a root canal to remove infected pulp or nerves, some may find that the infection returns after their treatment. When this happens, Dr. The Phan may perform an apicoectomy. This procedure involves removing any infected tissue and the tip of your tooth’s roots. The roots are then sealed off to prevent the infection from returning again. At AZ Dental, our oral surgeon and team will ensure that your treatment is comfortable and successful so your oral health can remain in pristine condition. Contact us at 408-247-5500 to schedule your apicoectomy in San Jose, California, today.
