Endodontic Retreatment | Fishers IN

With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. Sometimes, the pain may occur months or years after treatment. If so, Endodontic Retreatment may be needed.

Are You Seeking Relief from a Painful or Sensitive Tooth?

Pain in your tooth or gums may be a symptom of infected pulp. Drs. Moretton and Vail can perform a Root Canal to treat the infected pulp, relieve pain, and save your natural teeth!

Improper healing may be caused by:

    endodontic retreatment pre-opEndodontic retreatment

  • Curved or narrow canals were not treated during the initial treatment.
  • Complicated canals went undetected during the initial root canal treatment.
  • The crown or restoration was not placed within the appropriate amount of time following the procedure.
  • The crown or restoration did not prevent saliva from contaminating the inside of the tooth.

In some cases, new problems can influence a tooth that was successfully treated:

    X-ray of an infected tooth in need of root canal retreatment

  • New decay can expose a root canal filling material, causing infection.
  • A cracked or loose restoration can expose the tooth to new infection.

Once retreatment has been selected as a solution to your problem, the doctors will reopen your tooth to gain access to the root canal filling material. This restorative material will be removed to enable access to the root canal. The doctors will now clean your canals and carefully examine the inside of the problematic tooth. Once cleaned, the doctors will fill and seal the canals and place a temporary filling in the tooth.

At this point, you will need to return to your dentist as soon as possible in order to have a new crown or restoration placed on the tooth to restore full functionality.

Patient Review by Crystal P

Thank you so much for making a re-treatment of a root canal so quick and painless, under the circumstances! I felt like all of my questions were answered. I was told what was going to happen before it happened. You all also took safe precautions, due to my current pregnancy. After my appointment I contact my dentist who referred me and thanked him!

This is my second procedure I've had done at this practice and both times have been by far the best experience at an Endodontist that I've had from start to finish. Would highly recommend them!
