Hemisection, or root amputation, involves removing one-half of your tooth and is usually recommended when there is bone loss around an individual root due to gum disease, or when there is persistent endodontic failure in a single root. Our dentists perform hemisections as a temporary treatment to allow bone healing in preparation for implant placement. We invite you to call us at 281-205-4717 to learn more about hemisection, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Friedrichs and Dr. Abraham.
