What is root canal retreatment?
Many factors may lead to additional complications following root canal therapy. In some cases, the whole problem wasn't removed during therapy; in different cases, a new disease could have developed in the tooth. When a tooth reveals signs of disease after one or more root canals, our team will generally suggest endodontic retreatment. Like the initial root canal treatment, endodontic retreatment, or root canal retreatment, is performed to clean out the tooth's canals and remove the existing disease. Should you still suffer from pain or signs of an infection after a root canal, schedule an exam at 286 Madison Dental in New York, NY to decide if you will need an endodontic retreatment or another treatment.
Who is an ideal candidate for root canal retreatment?
Ideal candidates eligible for endodontic retreatment would be those who have had a root canal but are still experiencing symptoms of an infection in their tooth. The most frequent sign is discomfort or pain in the tooth that had the root canal therapy. If root canal retreatment is not possible, a tooth extraction or apicoectomy may be done at 286 Madison Dental. During your initial consultation at our office in New York City, we will review the best course of action to treat the infection and keep your tooth if possible.

What happens during the root canal retreatment process?
An endodontic retreatment will be performed in our office using anesthesia to numb the treated area. If the procedure is lengthy or you've got dental worries, we could use other sedation options. When you are prepared, we will open the tooth and remove the filling substance placed during the prior root canal. The tooth's interior, including each tip, will then be thoroughly disinfected. After the tooth is cleaned and examined, it will be strengthened with new material and sealed. A dental restoration (bridge or crown) is normally placed over the treated tooth for protection.
What is recovery like following endodontic retreatment?
After your endodontic retreatment, you should take a day or two to rest and heal. We'll provide homecare instructions after your endodontic retreatment, which will include the ideal way to clean your mouth. You could be prescribed pain relievers or antibiotics that should be taken as directed. Once your gums have recovered, you must adhere to a great home oral care regimen with daily flossing and brushing. Moreover, you need to schedule annual examinations at 286 Madison Dental so we can track the tooth and your oral health.
