Dental A to Z

Also in A:


The tip (apical) area of the root of a tooth. If this part of the tooth has to be removed the surgical operation is called an apicectomy or root re-section. The apex is a very important part of the tooth. The blood and nerve supply, which keep the tooth alive, run through a small opening in it into the root canal.
