Re: When is it necessary to have an apicoectomy?
If it were me I would pull it and put an implant in. If she had 2 root canals done and the infection is back I don't have much faith that an apicoectomy will solve the problem either. Lets say that you have this done and it doesen't work, you would of lost the money you put into having this done instead of towards the implant. I also had a root canal on a tooth and 2 apicoectomys done on it. Now it's infected again and I'm going to lose it. All that time , pain, and money wasted I could of had 2 implants done. All lost!!! I also had another tooth that had 2 root canals done and the infection came back. So this time I said PULL IT. I was not going to invest any more money on a losing battle. Good luck with what ever you decide. Misty
