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.

I was really impressed from the moment I walked up to the counter with the receptionist, to the care the doctor and assistant provided, to the call I received the next day to check on me. I have never enjoyed a visit for my teeth quite so much.

Everyone in the office was polite and accommodating. I was a work-in due to dental emergency. I'm very appreciative of that. Dr. T made sure I got an oral surgeon appointment that same day. Great office. Love the Christian music playing in the lobby.
