Why would I need Midtown Manhattan endodontic surgery? Generally, a root canal is all that is needed to save teeth with injured pulp from extraction.

Apicoectomy Midtown Manhattan
Endodontic surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection. Dr. Ostro offers apicoectomy surgery at his NYC practice which is limited to oral and maxillofacial surgery. The apicoectomy is a very common surgical procedure used to remove the infected tissue associated with the tooth. With the use of the surgical microscope and microsurgical instruments Midtown Manhattan apicoectomy surgery utilizes the latest technology to obtain a more predictable outcome.
