If your tooth is infected or inflamed following a root canal, our dentists may recommend an apicoectomy, or root-end resection. When you receive an apicoectomy treatment, the root tip and surrounding infected tissue of your abscessed tooth will be removed to help you regain the health and function of your diseased tooth. We invite you to call our office at 281-205-4717 to learn more about apicoectomy, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Friedrichs and Dr. Abraham.
