Apicectomy – Cyst Removal
During this procedure, the root of a tooth and especially the apical third is exposed and surgically removed. Treatment is indicated when the endodontic treatment of the relevant tooth is not successful.
Cysts are usually clearly described cavities. One of the reasons for growth is chronic inflammation around the root of a non vital tooth. These cysts are called radicular and during the removal it is necessary to extensively clean the area so that any recurrence in the future can be avoided.
