If you have received a root canal in the past, it is possible that the infection can return. Although this is not too common, when it happens, you may require an apicoectomy. At AZ Dental, our oral surgeon can perform your apicoectomy in San Jose, California, and remove the tip of your tooth’s roots to prevent any infection from spreading or returning. We invite you to learn more, and to contact us at 408-295-1100 to schedule your appointment with Dr. The Phan if you are experiencing pain after a root canal.
