You might need to have your root canal redone for several reasons. Sometimes, the initial treatment does not heal properly. Other causes include:
Some common symptoms of a complex root canal that may require a re-root canal treatment include:
Before the procedure, your dentist will carefully examine your tooth to determine why your first root canal might have failed. This assessment will enable the dentist to create a treatment plan for your re-root canal treatment.
Your dentist will follow the same procedure as before. Sometimes, if the root canal is narrow or blocked, you may require a minor surgical procedure. The surgery involves making a small cut in the gum under a local anaesthetic.
The dentist will remove any diseased tissue and the root’s tip before sealing the root canal’s end and closing the incision.
