Comfortable Endodontic Care

Root Canal Retreatment

Endodontic retreatment is a second chance to save your tooth.  During a retreatment procedure, an endodontist opens your tooth and removes the filling materials that were placed inside your tooth during the initial procedure.  The endodontist then examines the tooth using a microscope, looking for additional canals or new infection.  Next, the root canal system is shaped, cleaned and a new root canal filling is placed.  The access is covered with a temporary filling and the patient returns to their dentist for a permanent restoration or crown within 2-3 weeks.
