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.
Professional staff and good work.

This was my second time coming up here and just like last time, they were awesome. First time I had a root canal and I did great and this time, I had a root canal retreatment from another doctor from 2015 and I did great as well. I cannot say enough about this group. My dentist is from Montgomery and I live a little north of Montgomery but the drive is worth coming to Birmingham to come here. They get you right in and the staff and Dentists are awesome.
