Root canal treatment, also referred to by dentists and endodontists as endodontic therapy, is a procedure performed on a tooth to save it from manual extraction. This treatment can be highly successful if done by a trained and experienced professional, such as the providers of Conyers Endodontic Center in Conyers, Georgia. However, there are times when the procedure may not be effective, and patients might need to consider the benefits of root canal retreatment. Our dental team can talk to you about whether or not you need endodontic retreatment to save a tooth or if retreatment is no longer an option and extraction must be performed to restore the smile’s health.
Our dentists at Conyers Endodontic Center describe root canal retreatment as a way to address problems that may have occurred due to ineffective previous treatments. Our team of professionals sees patients with failed root canals, requiring retreatment to remove all bacteria and infected tissues from the tooth to prevent further damage. Additionally, root canal retreatment may be necessary if a new infection or inflammation occurs in a tooth that had previously undergone endodontic therapy.
It is not always necessary, as not every case of a failed root canal will require retreatment. In some cases, alternative treatments such as apicoectomy or extraction may be recommended to address the issue. Our professional team of endodontists carefully evaluates your situation and discusses all available options to determine the best course of action for your specific needs.
If you are a resident of Conyers, Georgia, or the surrounding communities and want to speak to a professional about the need for root canal retreatment, we invite you to book a consultation visit with our team to learn more about the advantages of retreatment with our dedicated staff.
