Root Canal Retreatment in Chandler

At AZ Roots Endodontics, led by Dr. Brandi Molina, we understand that even with proper care, some root canal treatments may face complications. While the goal is for treated teeth to last a lifetime, there are cases where healing doesn’t occur as expected, causing pain or disease to resurface months or years later. This is where root canal retreatment comes in – a second opportunity to support healing and save your tooth.

Causes for Retreatment

Several factors can lead to the need for root canal retreatment. Sometimes, during the initial procedure, certain challenges might not have been addressed:

  • Narrow or curved canals that went untreated
  • Complex canal anatomy that went unnoticed
  • Delays in placing the crown or restoration after endodontic treatment
  • Restoration that didn’t effectively prevent contamination

In some instances, a tooth that was successfully treated could face new problems:

  • New decay exposing the root canal filling to bacteria
  • Loose, cracked, or broken crown or filling inviting new infection
  • Fracture of the treated tooth

Why do I Need Retreatment?

Root canal retreatment becomes essential when a previously treated tooth faces unresolved issues or new complications. If you’re experiencing discomfort or pain in a tooth that was previously treated, consulting an endodontist is recommended. Dr. Brandi Molina’s expertise ensures a comprehensive assessment of your situation, providing the guidance needed to preserve your dental health.

How do I Know if I Need Retreatment?

Persistent pain or swelling near a previously treated tooth could be indicators of the need for retreatment. Changes in the tooth’s appearance or discomfort while biting may also signal an issue. If you’re unsure, seeking consultation with Dr. Molina is a prudent step. Through meticulous examination and CBCT imaging, Dr. Molina can determine whether root canal retreatment is necessary to address the underlying problem and secure your oral well-being.
