With appropriate care, your teeth with root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth. Occasionally, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal, or pain may continue. In this case, endodontic retreatment may be needed.
If retreatment is needed, your dentist in Leland, NC will reopen your tooth. The old restorative materials will be removed to gain access to the root canal. Your dentist will carefully examine and clean the inside of the tooth. Once cleaned, your dentist will fill and seal the canals.
