Endodontic treatment is often required to help save and restore the tooth to full health and full functionality. In some cases, the treatment will fail to heal the tooth completely. In such a case, we will reopen the tooth to access the canal filling and clean the canals carefully. All of this is done under microscopic examination, which allows us to detect canals that were not treated during the initial procedure, view complicated anatomy, and identify tooth fractures.
After this treatment, you will need to return to your dentist within a few weeks to have the tooth restored.
