Endodontic Surgery Denver CO

Root canal therapy is highly successful in saving your natural tooth. However, in rare cases, surgical options are needed. Here at Lowry Endodontics, Dr. Rahim Karmali and the rest of the team perform several endodontic surgeries and procedures. One of the more common surgeries is known as an apicoectomy. 

Here are some of the different endodontic surgeries we perform at our practice

Apicoectomy and Other Endodontic Surgeries

The most common type of endodontic surgery denver CO is an apicoectomy. During this procedure, your endodontist will surgically expose the root of the tooth. They will then treat the end of the root and remove the infected material. 

When would you need an apicoectomy?

  1. If your infected tooth cannot be treated with traditional root canal therapy.
  2. People with extremely narrow canals may not be the best candidate for a traditional root canal and instead, need endodontic surgery.
  3. The initial root canal procedure was unable to remove the infected tissue completely. 

Other types of endodontic surgery include:

  • Repairing Roots
  • Dividing a tooth
  • Removing damaged roots
  • Intentional Reimplantation
