At Northern Jersey Endodontic, Montvale endodontic retreatment can be done right in our offices. Root canal therapy is done to usually rid the tooth of some sort of infection inside the pulp. It can help save the tooth from needing extraction. If the tooth has severe decay, it may need to be extracted, but often a root canal can help save the tooth and eradicate the problem. Sometimes, an endodontic procedure fails. If this is the case, retreatment is needed.
Our staff can answer your questions about Montvale endodontic retreatment. After your first procedure a crown or cap is usually placed over the root canal site in order to protect it. Patients should care for their root canal by using proper brushing and flossing techniques. If you need more information on how to do this and on general tooth care, call our offices today so one of our friendly staff members can tell you more about proper oral hygiene.
Root canals can actually fail sometimes because of a variety of different factors. This could be anything from not keeping the area clean, to not brushing and flossing properly, to an infection that develops. Even with treatment, some of the cracks that are in a tooth can continue to progress. A crown can provide protection but doesn’t guarantee it. A Montvale endodontic retreatment will help to fix the area that is failing. First, we will have you come in for an exam, take X-rays if needed and consult with you about the endodontic procedure before we schedule it for you. Feel free to ask our staff about how the procedure works and any questions. We’re always available by phone to chat with you about your tooth care. We like to make sure our patients are informed and have all the information they need to make the right decisions for their oral healthcare.
