Reasons for endodontic retreatment

Already undergone endodontic surgery? An endodontic retreatment may alleviate pain, and help promote healing. If you think your tooth requires retreatment after a root canal, contact your Maple Ridge Endodontics and schedule an evaluation.

Like with all medical procedures, results do not always turn out as planned, and slow healing or infection is always possible for many reasons:

The first procedure failed to treat curved or narrow canals.
There is a complex canal anatomy that was either undetected or difficult to treat.
There was a delay in tooth restoration with a dental crown or filling after root canal therapy.
The restoration failed to protect against tooth contamination.
A new dental condition can also endanger a tooth that had successfully undergone root canal treatment, such as:

Newly developed decay can expose the filling to bacteria, and lead to a new tooth infection in the same tooth.
A loose, broken or cracked dental crown or filling can expose the treated tooth to new infection after a root canal.
A tooth fracture or other dental trauma.

Endodontic Retreatment Procedure

During your endodontic retreatment procedure, your Spanish Fork, UT endodontist will go back inside the tooth and remove the materials that were placed to fill in the empty root canals during the initial procedure.

The endodontist will then perform a thorough examination of the tooth, removes any additional infection, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals and places fresh filling. The opening is closed and sealed with a temporary filling. Once the retreated tooth has healed, a new restoration will be placed to protect the tooth structure. Your endodontic retreatment procedure is complete!

Other than getting in contact with your endodontist in Orem, Maple Ridge Endodontics also lets you avail services of an endodontist near you in other locations inclusive of Provo, Orem, Springville, Salem, Payson, and Mapleton.

I have been to Dr. Cardon twice. Very good , pain free root canal. The second time I went in for a consult, he picked up that I needed a different antibiotic, than the one I was on. He is a very caring, thorough Doctor.

Amazing people working on teeth here. They are happy and really care about what they are doing. I get extremely anxious and was able to use the laughing gas to calm my nerves during the procedure. It made everything better. They were fast and thorough. Will definitely come back for any work needed. Thanks Maple Ridge!!!

I had a great experience here! Staff was extremely aware of discomfort I was feeling during the procedure and made sure to stop and offer remedies. Fastest and pain free operation I’ve been through! I would highly recommend Maple Ridge Endodontics

I have been putting off for a couple of years due to dental nightmares when I was younger. Maple ridge staff was absolutely incredible! Fast , kind and understanding! I thought I would be in a lot of pain when the numbing wore off but no pain at all! I never dreamed getting a root canal would be so easy!
