Are you facing a failed root canal treatment? There’s hope!
An endodontic revision or retreatment consists of examining a previously-treated root canal and performing necessary corrective procedures to fully restore the tooth.
For example, about one year ago a patient underwent a root canal treatment on his first maxillary molar followed by the fitting of a crown. The patient felt the root canal procedure had failed as he had some gum swelling next to the tooth accompanied with some pain.
The patient wanted to save the tooth instead of having it removed and replaced by an implant-supported crown. Was there any hope? Yes, here was the solution!
Still a bit skeptical? Read this study of the cost-effectiveness of Endodontic Molar Retreatment compared with Fixed Partial Dentures and Single-tooth Implant alternatives.
