What does the treatment involve?

October 18, 2019

A cut is made in the gum above the tooth, followed by removal of bone to find the root tip.

The tip of the root is then removed, and a seal is put into place.

Once the apicectomy has been completed, the gum is put back into place with stitches.

In the majority of cases these stiches are dissolvable and take around two weeks to disappear.
