Endodontic RetreatmentWith 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, Endodontic Retreatment may be needed.
Call Sarasota Endodontics Phone Number 941-922-4948 to schedule an appointment.
Improper healing may be caused by:
- Curved or narrow canals were not treated during the initial treatment.
- Complicated canals went undetected during the initial treatment.
- The crown or restoration was not placed within the appropriate amount of time following the procedure.
- The crown or restoration did not prevent saliva from contaminating the inside of the tooth.
In some cases, new problems can influence a tooth that was successfully treated:
- New decay can expose a root canal filling material, causing infection.
- A cracked or loose filling or crown can expose the tooth to a new infection.
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 doctor will now clean your canals and carefully examine under the microscope the inside of the problematic tooth. Once cleaned, the doctor 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.

Patient Review by Marjorie C
This was a very positive experience and I'm so glad my dentist referred me to Dr. Oyola! I felt listened to, cared for and confident in her expertise and judgment. I have another root canal that also needs retreatment. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Patient Review by Ivana O
I took my daughter in for endodontic treatment and everyone was very friendly and professional from beginning to end. My daughter is 9 years old and they treated her with great patience. They talked her through the entire procedure and comforted her so well that she even took a nap during treatment! I will definitely recommend them to friends and family. Thank you all!
