Understanding Root Amputation

Root amputation, also known as root resection, is typically recommended when a multi-rooted tooth, such as a molar, has one or more roots that are damaged, infected, or affected by periodontal disease. By removing the affected root(s) while preserving the healthy portion of the tooth, root amputation can help prevent the need for tooth extraction and maintain the natural function and aesthetics of your smile.

The Root Amputation Procedure

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: During your initial consultation, our dental team will conduct a thorough examination of your tooth and surrounding tissues, including diagnostic imaging, to assess the extent of damage or infection and determine if root amputation is the appropriate treatment option.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on our findings, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. We will discuss the procedure in detail, address any questions or concerns you may have, and ensure you are fully informed and comfortable before proceeding.
  3. Root Amputation Surgery: The root amputation procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process. Our skilled dentist will carefully access the affected tooth roots, remove the damaged or infected root(s), and thoroughly clean and disinfect the area to promote healing.
  4. Root Canal Therapy (if needed): In some cases, root canal therapy may be performed on the remaining roots of the tooth to remove any infection and seal the tooth to prevent further damage or reinfection.
  5. Closure and Healing: Once the procedure is complete, the surgical site will be thoroughly cleaned, and the gum tissue will be sutured back into place to promote healing and stability. Antibiotics or other medications may be prescribed to prevent infection and manage any discomfort or swelling.
  6. Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress and evaluate the success of the root amputation procedure. Additional supportive care may be provided as needed to ensure optimal outcomes and maintain your oral health.
