Planning for Endodontic microsurgery using the latest in 3-D technology and software (Limited field CT imaging)
Apicoectomy (Removal and biopsy of lesion, root treatment with bioceramic root repair material, and bone graft to the damaged area)
If Dr. Jakob determines that retreatment is not the optimal course of action, root canal microsurgery (Apicoectomy) may be recommended. When treatment is planned properly and performed in a microsurgical setting, root canal surgery is a predictable and safe treatment option. With minimal discomfort both during and after surgery, we have achieved exceptional treatment outcomes.
Advanced diagnostic imaging, sterile surgical techniques, microsurgical instruments, particulate bone graft materials, and the use of biocompatible materials make this procedure safe, predictable, and highly effective. It can save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted and it allows for the safe removal of soft tissue growths. Dr. Jakob has advanced training and expertise in this highly technical and specialized microsurgical procedure.
