What will be the cost of apicoectomy treatment?

The type of material used for sealing the apicoectomy, the requirement of sedation, and the number of teeth or extent of the defect would determine the treatment cost. Moreover, the benefits of your insurance plan would determine the price of your procedure. You can schedule a consultation with us to determine the ideal treatment for you and then check with your insurance coverage. You can approach us with any questions you might have.

What are the post-apicoectomy instructions?

After performing the apicoectomy, our dental team will provide you with the following instructions for the recovery period -
  • Once the anesthetic wears off, you can feel some mild pain and swelling. This steadily decreases over the next few days, however, and you should be able to resume regular activities within a day or two.
  • To help battle an existing infection or prevent a post-operative infection, Dr. Adatrow might prescribe antibiotics. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen should be sufficient for pain.
  • Within a week, stitches are usually removed. When the stitches are in place, you may need to be careful to brush and floss at the site of your surgery.
