With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. Sometimes, the pain may occur months or years after treatment. If so, Dr. Collier, Dr. Thomas, Dr. Powell, Dr. Wikle or Dr. Kaple may need to perform Endodontic Retreatment.
Once retreatment has been selected as a solution to your problem, the doctors will reopen your tooth to gain access to the root canal filling material. This restorative material will be removed to enable access to the root canal. The doctors will now clean your canals and carefully examine the inside of the problematic tooth. Once cleaned, the doctors will fill and seal the canals and place a temporary filling in the tooth.
At this point, you will need to return to your dentist as soon as possible in order to have a new crown or restoration placed on the tooth to restore full functionality.
Even though Dr Powell was unable to do the Retreatment due to the post placement he took the time to really explain my options and made me fill good about moving on to oral surgery. He also took time to help me fill comfortable about the procedure that will be done. His assistant was wonderful as well. While I hope I will not have any future endodontic issues, if I do I will definitely consult with your staff.

I was squeezed in for an appointment and appreciated that Dr. Thomas could see me so quickly without a scheduled appointment. He also determined I didn’t need a root canal and suggested other options to try first. I was happy to try other non-invasion treatments instead of having a root canal right away.
