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.
Everyone was so sweet and made sure I was comfortable. I was really nervous about the procedure, but I was immediately but at ease by the doctor and abby. I hopefully will not have to have another root canal, but if I do will definitely be returning. Thank you for being so kind and helping me.

Excellent staff both professional and compassionate! I would highly recommend Dr. Stephen Thomas and his assistant Abby! They made the root canal retreat easygoing and my first visit to them was actually a pleasant experience!
