How root tip surgery works

In root canal surgery, the root tip and the inflamed tissue are removed through a small access on the side of the jawbone. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and you can communicate with us during the treatment.

Root canal surgery is always performed by our skilled dental surgeon.

Tooth prognosis

During the surgery, the dentist carefully assesses the prognosis of the tooth. In case of serious complications such as a cracked tooth, you will always be informed about the best option for your dental health.

Remember - before your surgery

We ask you to fill out a health form before your surgery.

To optimize the healing process, we recommend you eat a hearty meal before the procedure.

You are welcome to bring music or an audiobook to help you relax during surgery.

We answer all your questions

You will be informed both verbally and in writing about precautions regarding the treatment performed before you leave the clinic. If you still have questions when you get home, just give us a call.
