modern approach to
tooth root resection

Sometimes, when root canal treatment is not effective, the only way to save the tooth is through root resection.

This surgical procedure involves removing diseased tissue and the root tip through access from the bone side. Then, the canal is cleaned and filled with a special cement, which is crucial for treatment success.

At Warsaw Dental Center, our endodontists specialize not only in root canal treatment but also in root resection procedures. Utilizing a microscope, microsurgical tools, and 3D planning, the success rate of such procedures can reach up to 97%, meaning even more teeth can be saved.

answers the most frequently asked questions about root apex resection.

When is root apex resection necessary?

Root apex resection may be recommended in cases where conventional root canal treatment does not yield the desired results or when reinfection occurs. It is also an option for teeth with large fillings or crowns, where retreatment of the root canal may be challenging.

Is root apex resection painful?

Thanks to local anesthesia, patients do not feel pain during the procedure. After the anesthesia wears off, there may be mild discomfort and swelling, but these are usually mild and can be managed with pain medication.

How long does recovery take after root apex resection?

Most patients return to normal activities the day after the procedure. However, full tissue healing can take several weeks. It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions regarding oral hygiene and post-operative check-ups to ensure the best treatment outcomes.
