Endodontic Retreatment

Sometimes a tooth that has been treated doesn’t heal properly and can cause you pain months or even years after your treatment. An endodontic retreatment is a second round of treatment designed to help your tooth continue to heal the right way.

What is Endodontic Retreatment?

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.

Reasons for Endodontic Retreatment:

  • Narrow or curved canals were not treated during initial procedure
  • Complicated dental anatomy
  • Delay in placement of final restoration following endodontic treatment
  • Faulty restoration or decay has exposed the root canal filling material to bacteria
  • The tooth fractures
