Root canal vs apicoectomy: what’s the difference?

Root canal and apicoectomy are two endodontic procedures which can be carried out to save a tooth. However, there are some fundamental differences between the two. You might need an apicoectomy when a root canal treatment has failed, as it’s generally used as a last resort to save a tooth, while a root canal is often used as the first approach to saving a tooth.
