  • After trauma normally, if the tooth has become lose and xray is showing shadow, it means it is infected. In such teeth you have to go for Root Canal Treatment. Normally that takes care of peri apical infection and hence the shadow. But if the shadow is quite big and the dentist feels that the root canal treatment is not going to help and Apicecotomy is done, in which flap is raised and infection is removed directly and if bone loss is more then bone graft is also put at that time. This will take care of your tooth and you will not lose it.
