What We Can Do!
If root canal re-treatment is necessary, Dr. Carroll, will provide advanced anesthesia to get your tooth profoundly numb. While working with his assistant under a microscope, he will make a hole in the biting surface of the tooth to gain access to the root canal filling material. This old canal filling material will be removed in order for Dr. Carroll to properly investigate the tooth under the microscope. If no crack is detected, he will re-clean and shape all the canals, and most importantly, find and clean any previously missed canals that are the likely cause of the original root canal failure.
Once cleaned, Dr. Carroll will re-fill the canals and place a temporary filling in the tooth to further seal off the root canal system from the oral cavity. At this point, you will need to return to your dentist as soon as possible in order to have a new crown, or other restoration, placed on the tooth to restore full functionality.
