Endodontic Microsurgery in White Plains & Mt. Kisco, NY
If root canal treatment failed, your endodontist may recommend endodontic microsurgery to treat the infection. In some cases, microscopic fractures and hidden canals that did not appear on x-rays can be the cause of tooth pain and other problems. At AEW, we can perform an apicoectomy, or root-end resection procedure, to save your teeth. In this type of situation, whom you see first can make all the difference so it is important that you see one of our experienced endodontist with a background in microsurgery.
Microsurgery Center Dedicated to Endodontic Surgery
Unlike most endodontic practices, we have an exclusive endodontic microsurgery center onsite, The Endodontic Microsurgery Group. This center is dedicated to performing endodontic microsurgery and sedation dentistry in Bedford Hills, NY. Our surgeons have extensive experience performing these procedures while minimizing patient discomfort during treatment and during the postoperative stage.
With endodontic surgery, who you see first makes all the difference. Treatment outcome varies significantly (by almost 50%!), depending on the knowledge of root canal anatomy and the surgical technique used. The traditional technique has a success rate of about 45% while the advanced microsurgical technique has a much higher success rate of 90% to 95%. The endodontic surgeons at The Endodontic Microsurgery Group have extensive experience in this field and are able to maximize patient treatment options and outcome.
