Probably the most common of the dental procedures are those that involve the roots and the pulp of the teeth. These include root canal, pulpotomy or opening the pulp chamber to drain an infection, pulpectomy or removing the pulp from a tooth’s pulp chamber.
Another common procedure related to the roots and pulp of the teeth is apicoectomy.
For people with severe oral diseases, sometimes doing the procedures mentioned above are not enough.
There are times when a dental surgeon needs to do a root-end resection, which involves removing the apex of a tooth a surgically removing the diseased material.
