About ENDODONTIC RETREATMENT
ENDODONTIC RETREATMENT Procedure
If retreatment is necessary, using a microscope, your endodontist will reopen the tooth. After extracting the filling material, the canals will be thoroughly cleaned and carefully examined to see if additional canals are present that require treatment.
Once the canals are comprehensively cleaned, your endodontist will place a temporary filling. Endodontic surgery or Apicoectomy may be necessary if the canals are very narrow or calcified.. After retreatment is completed, within two weeks, you will need to see your dentist for the final restoration. If possible, preserving your natural tooth is always the best option.
Teeth that have been restored with a filling or crown can last for years, even a lifetime. Because technological and procedural methods are always changing, your endodontist may utilize new methods that were not attainable during your initial root canal treatment. Retreatment may improve the condition of your tooth. Your endodontist will discuss your chances of successful treatment prior to the procedure.
