When a root-canal treated tooth becomes re-infected, apicoectomy treatment may be necessary.
Archeological evidence and recorded history show that humans have sought permanent solutions to tooth loss for at least 4,000 years. Those early attempts made use of available materials like stone, metal, and seashells. Modern-day implants use surgical-grade titanium and other biocompatible materials.
