Earlier, dental diseases, which are accompanied by an inflammatory process, were an indication for tooth extraction. Now dentists use a unique surgical method that allows you to save a tooth.
Apexectomy, or root apex resection, is a procedure performed by dental surgeons. In this process, the dentist removes only the inflamed and damaged area.
This is a rather difficult procedure that requires a certain amount of experience and knowledge. To carry out such an intervention, not only local, but also general anesthesia can be used. There is no other way to access the root of the tooth.
Surgical intervention can be performed in a state of medication sleep. In this way, the patient will not feel anything, and the doctor will be able to perform the necessary manipulations. This is a great way to heal without stress or fear. Basically, it is fear that prevents timely access to the dentist.
