Root canal therapy, also referred to by professionals as endodontic treatment, is a highly reliable solution for many patients who have an infection inside of their tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted by a dentist. However, there are situations where a tooth can become infected after the procedure has been performed. Fortunately, the team at Conyers Endodontic Center of Conyers, Georgia, can provide root canal retreatment services to eliminate the need to remove the natural tooth permanently and seek tooth replacement options.
When a patient first comes to Conyers Endodontic Center, our dentists, Drs. Rolin Desir, Alison St. Paul, Candace De Veaux, and Monica Patel will evaluate the natural tooth to determine if traditional root canal therapy is best. Root canal therapy involves removing the dental pulp inside the tooth before disinfecting the canals and sealing the tooth.

Follow your provider’s aftercare instructions to maintain a healthy smile after endodontic therapy and reduce the risk of needing root canal retreatment in the near future. We invite you to call our office if you experience any concerns after your procedure that may indicate a severe problem.
