Solutions for Root Canal Retreatment

Although rare, a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy could become painful, infected or diseased months or even years after initial root canal treatment. For these cases, we perform root canal retreatment, also known as repeat root canal treatment.

When the initial endodontic procedure fails, retreatment becomes necessary. The patient may experience the same symptoms that led to root canal therapy and tooth infection such as tooth abscess may occur.

There are many reasons why root canal therapy can fail. The filling material used may be contaminated by bacteria and may differ from a normal infected tooth.

Endodontic retreatment is technically demanding and time-consuming. Meticulous care is required by the endodontist. Complex retreatment cases are often referred to Dr. Molina, who routinely uses an operating microscope to improve outcomes.
