HOW ARE OTHER ENDODONTIC SURGERIES DONE?
Endodontic surgery procedures depend on the problematic teeth. A tooth may be cut in half to remove a dead root. It can be used to trace and fix small fractures that X-rays cannot detect. Surgery may also be useful to clean root canals that have excess calcium deposits. In some other cases, a tooth is removed, the socket is treated and its replanted in the socket. These procedures help to save teeth.
IS IT A MAJOR SURGERY?
Endodontic surgery depends on the severity of the problem. For patients with multiple problems, it may take a while to heal. For one tooth, a local anesthetic is enough, and it takes a short time to heal. With the help of digital imaging and laparoscopic instruments, these surgeries are quick and comfortable. Most patients can resume their normal routine after getting the procedure. The endodontist recommends aftercare instructions to help with pain and cleaning.
WHAT IS THE SUCCESS RATE OF THE SURGERY?
The success rate of any surgery depends on different variables. The severity of the condition is one of them. Patients of blunt trauma to the teeth take longer to heal than patients of cavities and infections. Applied care after the procedure is also an important part of healing. The procedure aims to save your original tooth by any means necessary. Your endodontist will discuss with you the chances of success for your case.
