The following case is an example of surgical apicoectomy completed at Advanced EndoCare.
Surgical Case 1:
This case is of a maxillary molar, tooth #14. Mesial buccal root was not negotiable (not patent) so in order to eliminate infection a root resection, apicoectomy and retrofill (surgical root end filling) were performed. Advanced EndoCare uses a substance called MTA (mineral trioxide aggregate, pharmaceutical grade Portland cement). The 1 year post-operative images display that the bone is now healthy and infection free.
