Even though a root canal treatment removes the soft pulp tissues from your tooth, sometimes infection may linger in the boney parts at the end of the tooth root. Our endodontist can treat this problem when we perform endodontic surgery, which is also known as an apicoectomy. Our team at Root Canal Specialists, PC removes this section of the tooth and seals the root canals so you no longer have to suffer from pain and inflammation. Please call Dr. McInerney if you want to learn more about endodontic surgery in Bingham Farms, Michigan.
