After a root canal, it is possible for an infection to remain. If an infection remains around the end of a tooth’s roots and in the bone area, Dr. Angel may recommend an apicoectomy. This procedure removes the infection by removing the tip of the dental root and any infected tissue. If you are experiencing pain after a root canal, we recommend that you schedule a consultation at Angel Dentistry with our dentist to determine if an apicoectomy in Phoenix, Arizona, is the best treatment for improving your teeth’s health.
