Recovering from an Apicoectomy


Posted on 10/25/2018 by Aaron Vickers
Recovering from an ApicoectomyIn most cases, root canals are successful in removing an infection in the pulp of your teeth. However, in some instances, small pieces of infected debris from the teeth can be left behind, and this can create the need for an apicoectomy.

What is an Apicoectomy?


When you have an infection in the pulp, one of the inner layers of your teeth, you will feel pain, and we will need to do a root canal. This is one of the most common procedures in modern dentistry, and it helps to save your natural tooth.

If the infection is not entirely removed during the root canal, this could cause another infection that could potentially result in tooth loss. It is imperative to take care of a root canal thoroughly to avoid any further complications.

The apicoectomy takes care of the secondary infection in the pulp, which in many cases, indicates it has reached the apex, the point where the root ends. The apex is where all the nutrients and blood vessels are connected to your teeth.

How to Recover from an Apicoectomy?


Recovering from an apicoectomy takes time, and we will give you specific instructions. Swelling can happen immediately following the surgery. To reduce swelling it is crucial to use ice on the site for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Doing this as much as possible during the first 24 hours will help you heal faster.

We will send you home with a prescription to control pain if needed, and you can also use over-the-counter medications. We don't recommend aspirin because it could create additional bleeding in individual patients.

Physical activities should be limited for the first couple of days, and you can slowly resume your normal activities. Getting enough rest and following a soft diet for a day or two is also recommended.
