Post Operative Instructions
In most situations, post-operative discomfort is minimal. Patients are given a specific set of instructions regarding surgical post-operative care. This mostly involves icing the area and mild analgesics. We generally recommend that you rest for remaining portion of the day. The stitches are removed within a few days.
Patients are recalled at 6 month intervals to examine for proper healing.
The cost of endodontic surgery varies according to the severity of the problem, the location of the tooth and the number of fillings placed at the root end. Dr. Kaufmann recommends a consultation appointment in order to provide you with an estimate. Insurance plans generally cover surgical treatment to the same extent as conventional endodontics. As with any insurance plan, it is a good idea to have a preauthorization performed before the procedure.
