Patients who have had previous root canal therapies but still have swelling and pain that persists afterward may need to visit an endodontic professional to discuss the benefits of a surgical procedure referred to as an apicoectomy. At the Conyers Endodontic Center in Conyers, Georgia, patients looking for a professional “near me” that can complete this treatment can call for an appointment. During a consultation and initial evaluation, our team can assess a patient’s situation and determine if they benefit from the apicoectomy procedure.
There are a few times that a patient might be told they can benefit from an apicoectomy. Some of the reasons why one may be necessary include:
In situations such as these above, patients will often experience continued pain, even after having endodontic therapy. That is why further evaluation and additional treatment may be needed. If your endodontist wants to save the tooth, an apicoectomy is often required. This procedure is performed with local anesthetics and proper sedation to ensure patients are comfortable from start to finish, and our dental team will discuss what to expect during the recovery process.
Because of the specialized experience needed to complete this and the necessity of treatment, patients with dental insurance will often enjoy coverage that can lower the out-of-pocket costs. Alternatively, patients without insurance can set up a payment plan and financing option with our front office staff to ensure they can obtain care without breaking the bank. Our team is well-versed in helping patients get the most out of their dental insurance benefits.
Patients struggling with swelling and pain in a tooth that has already had root canal therapy, you must connect with a provider as soon as possible for an examination and get the assistance you need to find out if an apicoectomy is right for you!
