What Is Endodontic Retreatment?
Occasionally a tooth that has undergone endodontic therapy does not heal. Additionally, sometimes a tooth that initially responds to root canal therapy may become painful or diseased months or years later. When either of these situations occurs, the tooth often can be maintained with a second endodontic treatment. Dr. Burns will assess the condition of the tooth and discuss with you the prognosis and treatment options available under such circumstances.
