Save your tooth & maintain healthy bone and tooth structure
Root amputation is a procedure which involves the removal of one of the tooth roots. It is usually performed on the molars in the back of your mouth (which have several roots).
Like root canal therapy, root amputation is completed in order to save a damaged tooth from extraction.
Before and After of a root amputation (Apicoectomy)
Why would I need a root amputation?
- The tooth or root is fractured or broken
- Bacteria have infected one of the tooth roots
- Gum disease has created concentrated areas of bone loss
- There are concentrated areas of decay in the tooth
