Root Canal Retreatment
This may happen if a cavity reaches the nerve or a tooth breaks, thus exposing the nerve.
Occasionally, some root canal treatments may fail and require a re-do or a re-treatment root canal.
Root canal treatments have an 85% success rate and there are a variety of factors behind these success rates.
However, if you feel you require a re-treatment of a root canal, an endodontist will happily carry this our for you.
What is the Procedure?
Once the canals are cleaned, they are re-filled with a new rubber material and sealed to prevent any further bacteria entering the canal.
In contrast to the initial root canal treatment with a success rate of 85%, retreatments have a success rate of 92%.
