Endodontic Retreatment

What is endodontic retreatment

With proper care, you’ll keep teeth that have had root canal treatment for a lifetime, but it’s possible for those teeth to heal improperly, becoming painful or diseased months or even years after treatment. If this happens, you have a second chance to save the tooth with retreatment. An additional procedure may be able to diminish dental pain or discomfort and promote healing. If you suspect a tooth that had a prior root canal requires retreatment, visit your dentist or endodontist for evaluation.

Benefits of
endodontic retreatment​

Alleviates Pain & Sensitivity

An infected tooth can cause severe pain and sensitivity. By treating the infection with endodontic retreatment, you can relieve these symptoms and restore comfort to your smile.

Prevents Further Damage

An untreated infection in a tooth can lead to serious damage, including bone loss and gum disease. By treating the infection early with endodontic retreatment, you can help prevent these more serious problems from developing.

Saves your Natural Smile

Endodontic retreatment can save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. This can help preserve your natural smile and avoid the need for dental implants or other artificial replacements.
