An incision will be made in the gum tissue to expose the bone as well as the inflamed tissue; this is removed along with the end of the root tip. A root-end filling is placed to reduce risk of reinfection and then sutured. Bone grafts may be needed if an infection has destroyed huge portion of bone.
