Root amputation is a specialized dental procedure that removes one root from a multi-root tooth.
The tooth is then stabilized and fully functional with a crown or filling.
The multi-root teeth best suited to the root amputation procedure are the molars at the back of the mouth.
These large flat teeth have two or three roots depending on whether they are on the upper or lower jaw.
A dentist might refer a patient to an endodontist for root amputation when faced with various issues, which may include:
Bacteria that is embedded into the root structure
Teeth or tooth roots are fractured or broken
Decay has occurred in a specific area of the tooth
Periodontitis has caused severe bone loss around the tooth
