ENDODONTIC RETREATMENT


With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. Sometimes, the pain may occur months or years after treatment. If so, Endodontic Retreatment may be needed.


IMPROPER HEALING MAY BE CAUSED BY:

* Curved or narrow canals that were not treated during the initial treatment.
* Complicated canals that went undetected during the initial treatment.
* The crown or restoration was not placed within the appropriate amount of time following the procedure.
* The crown or restoration that did not prevent saliva from contaminating the inside of the tooth.


IN SOME CASES, NEW PROBLEMS CAN INFLUENCE A TOOTH THAT WAS SUCCESSFULLY TREATED:

* New decay can expose a root canal filling material, causing infection.
* A cracked or loose filling or crown can expose the tooth to new infection.
