Expert Root Canal Retreatment for Optimal Oral Health

Root canal retreatment or Endodontic retreatment is a second chance to save a tooth that previously had a root canal but has become painful or diseased. It can be necessary due to factors like untreated canals, complex anatomy, delayed restoration, or new issues like decay, cracks, or fractures. During retreatment, the endodontist reopens the tooth, removes previous materials, addresses infection, reshapes canals, and places new fillings. A permanent restoration is added later to protect the tooth.

Reasons You May Need Treatment

What is Root Canal Retreatment?

Root canal retreatment is similar to the original root canal treatment, but it is more complex. The dentist will first remove the old filling or crown. Then, they will use special tools to clean and reshape the root canals. Finally, the dentist will seal the root canals again with a filling or crown.
