Why do I need to have my root canal retreated?

Unfortunately, the human body is sometimes unpredictable, and occasionally a root canal treatment may not heal as expected. Some of the reasons why a root canal treatment may not heal properly include:

  • Erosion caused by decay on the treated tooth
  • Complicated anatomy of the root canal on the treated tooth that adversely affects the healing process
  • Recontamination or infection of the affected tooth before it can be properly sealed

While you are probably not excited by the prospect of a second root canal, our office performs relatively painless root canal treatments and retreatments that are safe and completed quickly thanks to the latest dental and root canal techniques.
