Endodontic Retreatment

If your tooth fails to heal properly after a root canal you may need endodontic retreatment. Pain can occur months to years later and be due to several reasons including:

  • Complicated canals went undetected and untreated
  • Curved or narrow canals were not originally treated
  • Restoration did not prevent contamination from saliva
  • Restoration not placed within the right amount of time

Sometimes your treated tooth may cause pain due to new problems, such as new decay or a cracked or loose filling. Both of these can lead to a new infection. In any of these cases endodontic treatment may be needed.

Dr. Borromeo Shares His Thoughts

I’ve been practicing for twenty-six years and I’ve been referring to Dr. Nguyen for about fifteen years. I refer my patients to Dr. Nguyen because of these three things. First is their experience; The experience that they have with his technology and what he does. There is also that enjoyment factor where he’s got that personality where he keeps you at ease. The last thing would be the education because he educates my patient and he tells them what to do when he’s done with the treatment.
