Why do I need an apicectomy after my root canal treatment?

Sometimes the pulpal area becomes filled with calcium and the dentist cannot completely fill the tooth. This is called calcification of the root canal. To seal the tooth and protect it from future infection, an apicectomy is needed. Also remaining big cysts, at the tip of the root need to be treated with an apicectomy.
