A root canal treatment in White Plains, NY or Mt. Kisco, NY becomes necessary when an infection forms in the pulp of the tooth. While a majority of these treatments will be successful, endodontic treatment failures have been known to occur. The treatment can fail due to degradation of the sealing or the restoration leaking. At this point, you do not need another endodontic treatment. You will require endodontic microsurgery from Drs. Justin Kolnick, Kara Diamond, Keith Hope, or Bilal Chaudhry to remedy the situation.
It May Be the Only Way to Locate Fractures
Occasionally, problems following a pulp canal procedure are the result of a fracture so small it cannot be seen in an X-ray. Our endodontists know what to look for and may recommend an apicoectomy, also known as a root-end resection procedure.
An apicoectomy consists of removing infected gum tissue and lifting the gums up to reveal the root of the tooth. A section of the root will need to be removed, and a filling is placed on the surface.
Patients Need to Seek Out Microsurgery Immediately
When an endodontic professional recommends microsurgery, it is because he or she firmly believes it is the best way to save your natural tooth. If you delay the procedure or if you undergo a different dental treatment first, then the tooth in question may need to be extracted.
You also want to be certain you go to an office that specializes in endodontic microsurgery. This is a highly specialized treatment, and by going to an experienced endodontist first, the chances of a successful procedure increase by nearly 50 percent.
