Endodontic Retreatment Denver CO

Endodontic Retreatment Denver CO

Done properly, endodontic treatment can be successful more than 90% of the time.  Unfortunately, however, it is common to hear about root canals that did not entirely remove all infected tissue from within the tooth. Pain, swelling, and continued infection can persist. Root canal therapy is a delicate procedure that can lead to failure if not completed by a skilled endodontist. 

Dr. Rahim Karmali and the Lowry Endodontics team can often re-treat the existing root canal therapy and save you from having to extract the tooth and replace it with a dental implant.  

Your primary dental provider may perform these kinds of treatments, but at Lowry Endodontics, endodontic retreatment Denver CO is performed every day. The team knows what to look for and how to predictably repair issues with your original dental work.

You may be asking yourself, “how can my root canal fail?” Here are some of the most common reasons:

  1. Not all of the infected pulp was removed from the root canals during the initial root procedure.
  2. The most up-to-date technologies were not used to perform the initial root canal procedure. 
  3. One of the canals inside the tooth was missed or overlooked (they are not all as clear on an x-ray as you might think).
  4. Microbial leakage through your filling or crown.
