Why would you need more than one Endodontic procedure (Endodontic Retreatment)? Victoria
Why would you need more than one Endodontic Procedure?
The requirement for more than one endodontist procedure will depend on the degree of infection and damage caused to the tooth and gum.
 
1.      When the soft tissue inside the root canal becomes inflamed or infected, endodontic treatment becomes necessary. There are many reasons for the inflammation or infection: deep decay, crack or chip in the tooth or repeated dental procedures on the tooth. Left untreated, the pulp inflammation can cause pain and lead to an abscess.
 
2.      When the problem worsens and has seeped into the tooth then a root canal is necessary to save the tooth. Root Canal Treatment also known as endodontics is a procedure used to remove all the nerve and blood supply to the affected tooth. To prevent any bacteria forming, the tooth is cleaned, infected and dead tissues from within the tooth is removed, sterilized, filled and sealed. This procedure is complex as there are several small branches off the main canal. Without this treatment, the tissue which surrounds the tooth will become infected and an abscess will be formed. The objective is to remove all the infected area, with half a millimeter to the tip. It is possible that despite a root canal treatment that infected areas can still remain in these branches. This is likely to prevent healing or may even cause re-infection. It will then be necessary for a second root canal treatment to be carried out. With advanced technology, it is possible to detect the problem and have it successfully treated.  
 
3.      However, if the problem still persist an apicoectomy which is also called endodontic microsurgery will be necessary. It is a surgical procedure which is used to remove the infection, caused by the failed root canal treatment.
 
4.      In an Apicoectomy or Root-End Resection as it is also known, the root tip and the surrounding infected tissue of the abscessed tooth is removed. This procedure is carried out by an Endodontic Specialist.
 
5.      Other endodontic surgeries that might be necessary include dividing a tooth in half, repairing an injured root and if necessary, remove one or more roots.
 
6.      In situations which are complex a procedure known as intentional replantation may be performed. This procedure requires a tooth to be extracted, treated with an endodontic procedure during the time it is out of the mouth and then replaced to its socket.
 
Regardless of how effective tooth replacements are, they can never be as affective as natural teeth. You have made an investment in saving your tooth by resorting to endodontic procedures.
