Endodontic drainage is an emergency intervention in the case of acute apical periodontitis and is the removal of purulent secretions, pulp debris and altered dentin from the root canals, with the help of endodontic needles.

The procedure takes about 20 minutes, is performed in the emergency room and must be followed by a complex endodontic treatment.

Junior&Family dentists recommend endodontic drainage when the tooth is to be preserved and the canals are permeable.

Alternatives to endodontic drainage are:

  • transmaxillary osteotomy – a surgical intervention in which an opening is created through the gum and bone to drain the periapical purulent collection;
  • tooth extraction.
