Recently visited my dentist who told me I needed either root canal treatment or alternatively extraction due to the presence of an abscess on my gum. I had very minor pain but thought I should get it checked out. I really do not want to have the tooth extracted so went with the RCT. Anyway dentist drilled a bit of the tooth but was unsuccessful in treating it due to one badly calcified root (other two are okay). She said I would have to have an extraction. She never mentioned the option of an Apiocoectomy and as far as I know they don’t do it at that clinic. Anyone know why Apiocoectomy might not be an option? I’m fairly desperate to keep the tooth and as I said I have no pain with it right now.
