In a small percentage of cases, a tooth that has received treatment fails to heal completely or pain may persist. Occasionally, the tooth becomes painful months or years after treatment. If so, endodontic retreatment may be indicated. At Contemporary Endodontics, our Dental Team specializes in Endodontic Retreatment.
Reasons for Endodontic Retreatment May Include:
In some cases, new problems can influence a tooth that was successfully treated:
The endodontist will reenter the tooth to remove the original root canal filling material and then clean the canals while carefully examining the inside of the problematic tooth.
After removing the canal filling, the endodontist will search for any additional canals or unusual anatomy that requires treatment.
After endodontic retreatment, you will need to return to your dentist soon to have a new crown or restoration placed on the tooth for protection and restoration of full functionality.
