By partnering with Professional Endodontics, dentists can provide the additional specialized care that some patient circumstances require.
The dental industry has experienced significant improvements in the practices and procedures that make up standard root canal therapy. These improvements have led to increasingly higher success rates. In fact, in many cases, the results are effective for a lifetime. Of course, there are those occasions in which a previous dental treatment doesn’t heal quite right or doesn’t last as long as it should. In these cases, endodontic retreatment might be necessary to prevent any further damage or infection to the affected area.
The most common need for endodontic retreatment comes as a result of a root canal treatment that, for any number of reasons, didn’t heal properly. Here are a few examples:
- A narrow or complex root canal anatomy causes complications during the initial treatment.
- Missed, or under filled canals in previous root canal treated teeth.
- Restoration not performed in a timely manner, and the root system becomes infected.
- Infection can occur in an old root canal, where the restoration has degraded over time.
- New decay allows bacteria to enter a previously treated root canal.
It is important to recognize that infection can occur without pain. Many patients unknowingly allow their infections to gain momentum simply because they aren’t aware it exists. Encouraging patients to schedule frequent routine dental check-ups post-treatment is the best way to ensure infections are caught early. The quicker an infection is detected, the more positive the prognosis will inevitably be. After detection, the affected tooth must be reopened, all old fillings and restorative material must be removed, and the canal must be retreated and thoroughly cleaned.
