Cost or Additional Care Following Surgery: After surgery most patients are able to return to work and resume routine activities the following day. If you have questions or pain that does not respond to medication, please give our office a call. Many insurance companies cover apicoectomy surgery under normal endodontic coverage but checking with them is suggested.
Usually the alternative to surgery is extraction of the problem tooth. After the extraction you will need to replace the extracted tooth with an implant, removable partial denture or bridge to restore chewing area and prevent other teeth from shifting. We would be happy to discuss these options with you and your dentist if an extraction is required.
