Re-treat Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is tooth recovery procedure performed in a decayed or infected tooth structure. In some instances, root canal treatment may fail due to numerous reasons. In such cases, re-treating the teeth is the course of action taken to restore the affected tooth with minimal damage to the structure. At Bluetooth Dental Clinic, this is performed by a root canal specialist to successfully seal the area of the root canal.

What is done during re-treat root canal procedure?

The procedure is almost similar to a root canal treatment with only difference that the old filling material is removed from the tooth cavity. All the decayed or infected pulp with the nerves and blood vessels are removed during the first attempt. During the re-treat procedure, the cavity is carefully examined for additional canals or new infection. If present, the infected area is removed, cleaned and shaped, and new filling material is placed to fill in the gap and sealed. A Crown is placed to protect the tooth against fractures.

When is a re-treat root canal treatment required?

With proper dental care and cleaning routine, a root canal treated teeth last a lifetime. But in some instances, the treated tooth may not heal properly, causing pain or discomfort. This is when an additional procedure is needed to support healing and save the tooth. A treated tooth may not heal or develop a new problem due to various reasons:

  • Narrow or curved canals was not treated
  • Complicated canal anatomy
  • Delayed placement of the crown or other restoration
  • Salivary contamination to the inside of the tooth
  • Exposure to bacteria causing a new infection in the tooth
  • A loose or broken crown or filling exposing the tooth to infection

Any of these issues can create a new problem and jeopardize a tooth that was successfully treated. This can occur within a few months or even years after the initial root canal treatment. If any pain or discomfort is experienced in a previously treated tooth, immediately talk to your Dentist at Bluetooth Dental Studio, to look into retreatment option.
