Root Canal Retreatment

Why Would I Need Retreteatment?

Occasionally, a previously treated tooth may need to be retreated. Root canal retreatment may be due to any of the following reasons:

Three steps to root canal retreatment:


Step 1

Our endodontist will re-open the tooth to gain access to the root canal space.  Any previous crown, post, or filling may need to be removed to gain access.


Step 2

Our endodontist will examine and clean the canals within the tooth.


Step 3

After cleaning the canals within the tooth (using  PIPS in combination with the ER: YAG Laser) our endodontist will fill and seal the canals, placing a temporary filling in the tooth.
