Hi, I had a failed root canal surgery, which led to infection. Now I need an apicoectomy, and I’m afraid because I heard that some complications can appear. Is it true?

Hi, apicoectomy is used when an infection develops after root canal treatment. The infected tissue is removed and the canals are cleaned. Along with infected tissue, the root tip is removed too in an apicoectomy. You should consider a second root canal treatment before an apicoectomy. Complications and risks depend on where the tooth is located. Apicoectomy complications can affect sinuses if infected tooth is located in your upper jaw. If this happens, you’ll get antibiotics and decongestants. Don’t worry, chances that you’ll have any complications are very small.
