Endodontic Surgery: What patients Need to Know
commonly performed Root Canal Treatment procedure fails to produce the desired results. A surgery can be recommended for various reasons such as;
- Treat the bone surrounding
- Treat damaged root surfaces
- May be necessary after a root canal treatment
- “Calcification”- a situation where calcium deposits pose as a barrier for the surgical instruments to reach the end of the root
- For diagnostic reasons
A procedure known as Apicoectomy or root-end resection is one of the commonest procedures performed in case the conventional techniques fail to treat the tooth. The endodontic surgery in India is vital when the infection persists in the bony region of the tooth even after a root canal procedure.
During the apicoectomy procedure, the endodontist will cut and open the gum tissue, and will then remove the infected tissue in case present and will also remove the end of the root to prevent another infection.
A slight filling (Gutta Percha) will be placed to seal the end of the root canal and the sutures will also be made in the gingiva to facilitate excellent recovery. The bone will restore its self over a period of time.
Why the Endodontic Surgery
Root canal treatment on certain teeth isn’t that easy as with other teeth, though the procedure itself is a little bit more complicated in some patients. The mandibular incisors, maxillary molars, and the mandibular first premolars are by nature hard to be treated and may require a second session to fully eliminate the threat. This is due to the fact that more canals are hardly accessible or visible with the simple treatment techniques.

The Endodontic Surgery cost
The average endodontic surgery cost ranges between $500 to $1000 depending on a patient’s treatment requirement. The Endodontic Surgery Cost in India will also vary with the clinic and the treatment sessions if required.
Is the Procedure Painful?
The procedure is generally pain-free since local anesthesia will be used to alleviate the pain, but you will feel minor discomfort. The endodontist will also provide medications to relieve you from pain and also prevent infections from occurring.
Just like other dental surgical procedures, you may experience bleeding, and swelling, but make it a point to follow the surgeon’s postoperative instructions .
