Re Treatment RCT in Gordon

Comfortable and Relaxing Re-Treatment Experience

Root Canal Treatment (RCT) has a high success rate, over 90% of people who undergo the procedure regain the functionality of their tooth. In some cases, however, where the tooth doesn’t heal properly or develops new issues, re-treatment is required. This can occur shortly after your RCT, or years later.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort around the previously treated tooth it is important that you seek help immediately.
Dentists in Gordon are highly skilled in endodontics and understand the stress associated with getting re-treated. If you are a nervous patient, do not hesitate to let our friendly clinical staff know. We aim to provide a relaxing environment at all times so that you can leave our practice feeling comforted.

Reasons Initial Treatment May Fail

When a root canal treatment fails to heal or develops a new infection or issue, it’s likely due to anatomy, disease or damage to the crown/restoration – not the fault of the patient. Common reasons people require root canal re-treatment include:
  • Curved or narrow canals were difficult to treat and infection has persisted.
  • Complicated canal anatomy that went undetected during the initial treatment.
  • Crown or restoration, was not applied within the appropriate amount of time.
  • New decay or broken crown/restoration has exposed the root canal filling material, causing infection.
  • Cracked or loose crown or filling has exposed the tooth to a new infection.
