Root Canal Retreatment
Whether the initial treatment was incomplete or the tooth has become reinfected, our skilled endodontists are here to provide specialized retreatment services to restore your oral health.

Understanding Root Canal Retreatment

Root canal retreatment is a procedure performed to address issues with a tooth that has previously undergone root canal therapy but has experienced complications or failure. These complications may include:

  • Incomplete removal of infected tissue
  • Undetected additional canals
  • New decay or damage to the tooth
  • Poorly sealed or fractured restoration

What to Expect During Root Canal Retreatment

Evaluation: During your initial consultation, one of our experienced endodontists will evaluate your previous root canal treatment and assess the condition of your tooth. We may use advanced imaging techniques, such as digital radiography or cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), to identify any underlying issues.

Retreatment Procedure: The retreatment procedure typically involves reopening the tooth, removing the existing filling materials, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, and sealing it with new materials. Our microsurgical approach allows us to meticulously remove any remaining infected tissue and ensure thorough disinfection of the root canal space.

Follow-Up Care: After your retreatment procedure, we’ll provide detailed instructions for post-treatment care to promote healing and prevent complications. We’ll also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure the success of the retreatment.
