Rockville Centre, NY 11570
Sometimes the damage to a tooth or teeth is too severe for a root canal to properly fix. If this happens, Dr. Donn R Jacobs will perform a root-end resectioning surgery, or apicoectomy. This is a common procedure that has a high success rate, especially when performed with our state-of-the-art equipment.
Don't worry, our office is made to make you comfortable. Call today!

With the expert care and precision of Dr. Donn R Jacobs, you will be smiling without pain again in no time!
