Root canal retreatment is an endodontic procedure that removes inflammation and infection that may develop after root canal therapy giving your tooth a second chance. It is a highly personalized procedure, with each patient’s case being unique. Our endodontist will utilize specialized 3D imaging and micro-technologies to remove infection and preserve the tooth.
Root canal retreatment can alleviate tooth pain and eliminate a recurrence of inflammation or infection. Retreatment can save a tooth that may otherwise need to be extracted allowing you to retain the integrity and health of your natural tooth indefinitely.
If you are experiencing problems with a tooth that has previously been treated with root canal therapy, retreatment is likely an excellent solution to your symptoms and concerns. During your consultation for root canal retreatment North Palm Beach endodontists at Orange Dental Partners will perform a thorough assessment using cutting edge technology that will be used to determine if retreatment is the right course of action for you.
Root canal retreatment involves making a small access through the biting surface of your tooth. Utilizing this opening our North Palm Beach endodontist will clean and disinfect the canals within the tooth. While inside the tooth the endodontist will also use a surgical microscope to correctly locate and clean out all the canals that may not have been treated previously.
The endodontist will clean out the canals to remove any Inflammation or infected tissues as well as anatomical abnormalities that may be contributing to your symptoms. Lastly, the endodontist will seal the canals and apply a temporary filling to the tooth. After treatment and healing you will return to your dentist for any necessary restorative procedures to ensure the longevity of your tooth.
Root Canal Retreatment is a minimally invasive procedure. Post-operative tenderness and inflammation is generally manageable with over the counter pain medications. You should be able to return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.

Saving your natural tooth should always be the ultimate goal of any treatment. Root canal retreatment can restore the integrity, long lasting health, and functionality of your tooth.
Tooth extraction is the only alternative treatment to root canal retreatment. Replacing an extracted tooth can be more expensive than saving your natural tooth, along with lengthier treatment and recovery times.
Root canal retreatment is painless. During your procedure, you will be under the effects of local anesthesia, and discomfort during recovery is generally mild.
The duration of your procedure will depend on your unique needs, although it usually takes approximately 60 minutes to complete.
