Retreatment of a root canal may become necessary if a root canal treated earlier fails to heal or a fresh infection is evident.
Root canal treatments enjoy a high success rate but just like other medical or dental problems the inflammation may persist and recur again in spite of the best efforts provided to the tooth. In such cases, endodontics 84660 will recommend retreatment of the root canal by looking into the potential causes and determining how they can be corrected. Endodontic retreatment may be the best option available to you to preserve your tooth.
The retreatment procedure of the root canal is similar to the root canal procedure and will be performed by endodontics in Spanish Fork under the guidance of Dr. Bryan E Cardon who has the qualification and experience to perform these procedures. You will be needed to visit the endodontist twice for the treatment. During the first visit, all root canal filling material will be removed and an antibacterial paste known as calcium hydroxide will be placed. The tooth will be closed with a temporary filling material. This antibiotic medication will be left on the tooth for some time to reduce the bacteria and give the tooth better chances of healing.
During the second visit, the canal will be cleaned again after removing the calcium hydroxide paste. They will be shaped again and a new filling over the root canal will be placed. Ultimately a temporary filling will be placed on the tooth to close the opening which would have been created.
You will need to visit your dentist to remove the temporary filling after the tooth has been restored. After a root canal retreatment, your tooth would be fragile and susceptible to fractures or infections due to the loss of the temporary filling. Therefore the need to visit your dentist promptly for restoring the tooth to its full functionality will be a necessity you cannot ignore.
After the retreatment is over you need to return to your dentist for restoring your tooth with a permanent crown, filling, or bridge. This should not be delayed for over four weeks. Until the final restoration is completed the tooth remains susceptible to decay and fractures which may result in the loss of the tooth.
It is suggested that you avoid chewing on the tooth because of its susceptibility to fractures until your dentist has permanently restored it with a crown.
