Apicoectomy Precisely Targets Small Areas of Infection
Unlike surgeries which completely remove one or more roots, apicoectomy only removes a portion of the root tip. Preserving the most dental tissue possible is always preferable.
More Accurate Treatment
Root canals are notoriously complex systems. During the initial treatment, it can be difficult to remove infected tissue from tiny branches of the root tip (apex). Directly accessing the area can be more effective.
