What is root canal retreatment? It is a special procedure performed on a tooth that has had root canal therapy in the past.
Root canal therapy has a success rate over 90%, but occasionally, a problem arises. Whether the complication occurs immediately, or over a longer period of time, root canal retreatment is usually the best option. Some of the problems that might make retreatment necessary are listed here:
- Narrow or hard-to-see root canals that were not treated initially
- The sealant did not properly prevent bacteria from accumulating further
- Tooth became damaged or infected before the dental crown or filling was placed
- The dental crown or filling was damaged and the tooth is now infected or damaged
- The tooth is broken and susceptible to further infection
