We provide the best endodontic treatment to improve the quality of your smile. Although root canal procedures have a 95% success rate, there are cases where previous endodontic treatment does not heal properly. Even after successful treatment, you may need re-treatment if you show signs of tooth pain.
Should I Get Re-Treatment?
There may be an array of reasons why your tooth is not healing properly. If so, you may need re-treatment for the following reasons:
- Present salivary infection
- Curved or narrow canals (not treated in prior procedures)
- Crown placement delayed/broken
- Unnoticed canal structure (not visible during the initial procedure)
- New decay causing bacteria
During your consultation, your endodontist will examine your teeth and discuss your next steps. During re-treatment, we will apply local anesthesia to the affected area. Then, they will remove the canal filling in order to analyze for any abnormalities. It will be properly cleaned using a microscope.
Afterward, your endodontist will fill and seal the canal with a temporary filling. We will put a new crown atop your re-treated tooth.
