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
