Have you had root canal therapy on one of your teeth in the past? Are you noticing the same symptoms that led you to get the treatment in the first place coming back again, like tooth pain and extra sensitivity? If so, you may be in need of endodontic retreatment from our local Nanuet endodontist at Rockland Endodontics. Firstly, it is useful to know why root canal therapy is needed in general. Our local Nanuet endodontist performs root canal treatments when a tooth with an infected pulp still has the chance to be saved and restored to its normal functioning state. Root canal treatments work by removing the infected pulp from the tooth, thoroughly cleaning it so that the area is free of any excess, offending bacteria, and then sealing the tooth back up using sturdy materials preventing re-infection.
Unfortunately, sometimes the tooth does not heal from the root canal treatment as properly because of re-infection or other various complications that may arise depending on the individual’s situation. In these cases, you should visit our local Nanuet endodontist for an endodontic retreatment at Rockland Endodontics. The process of getting an endodontic retreatment is quite similar to the primary root canal experience. The main difference is that instead of removing an infected pulp, our endodontist will remove the old root canal filling material that was put in, clean the area again, and replace the filling material with new sealant. Patients typically go through very successful root canal re-treatments thanks to the years of experience and level of expertise associated with our local Nanuet endodontist and the rest of the staff at Rockland Endodontics.
