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. 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.

Dr. Powell, Tia and staff were absolutely exceptional! There was a mix up with the appointment time and they were able to get me in quickly and were so kind throughout the whole process! Highly recommend!

I was lucky to be accepted as an emergency patient. Otherwise I would have to wait for at least 2 weeks to get my root canal abscess treated. I am very thankful for Erin and Dr. Thomas to take care of me while I was in pain. I am already feeling much better two days after the treatment. I am still under recovery now. I can’t wait for the day I am able to enjoy chewing food. I would go back again if I need further treatment and recommend Brookwood Endodontic to anyone I know.
So glad to have another opinion on my situation!
