Endodontic Retreatment in Vienna, VA

At Laser Endodontic Care LLC, we recognize that even the most meticulously performed root canal treatments can sometimes require further attention. This is where endodontic retreatment plays a crucial role. Endodontic retreatment is a procedure performed on a tooth that has previously undergone root canal therapy but has not healed properly or has developed new problems. Our goal is to address these issues, ensuring long-term dental health and comfort for our patients.

Endodontic retreatment involves the careful reopening of the tooth to access the root canal filling material. This material is then removed, and the canals are thoroughly cleaned and examined. During this process, Dr. Mary Ann Choby will look for any additional canals or new infection that may have been missed in the initial treatment. Once the tooth is meticulously cleaned, it is refilled and sealed, and a new crown or restoration is placed to protect the tooth.

Patients undergoing endodontic retreatment can expect a procedure similar to their initial root canal, but with advanced techniques and materials. Our practice is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to enhance precision and effectiveness, ensuring a comfortable and successful treatment experience.

The benefits of endodontic retreatment include:

  • Resolution of ongoing infection or discomfort associated with the previously treated tooth
  • Preservation of the natural tooth, avoiding the need for extraction and more complex dental procedures
  • Restored functionality and aesthetics of the tooth
  • Enhanced overall oral health and well-being
