Dental Appointment

Root canal therapy, or endodontic treatment, is one of the most proven and time-tested procedures in dentistry. Root canals can restore a painful tooth that has been severely infected and would otherwise need to be extracted. Unfortunately, there are still times in which root canal treatment may fail. In such cases, your dentist may recommend endodontic retreatment.

Tooth Abscess After Endodontic Treatment

At Crabapple Dentistry, we understand the notable pain and discomfort that accompanies a tooth abscess. If your root canal has caused a tooth abscess due to infection or disease in the tooth, our root canal retreatment can cure your tooth abscess and give you a functional and healthy tooth for years to come.

When is Endodontic Retreatment Necessary?

Most of the time, a root canal is all that is needed to effectively save a tooth and make it last as long as other natural teeth. However, if your root canal fails to heal and continues to be painful, you may be a candidate for endodontic retreatment. This may occur months or even years after your initial root canal procedure. Endodontic retreatment can help patients that have experienced improper healing due to the following:

  • Narrow or curved canals that were not treated during the initial procedure
  • Complicated canal anatomy that went undetected in the first procedure
  • The crown or other restoration was not placed soon enough after the procedure
  • The restoration failed to prevent saliva from contaminating the inside of the tooth

Are you concerned that your root canal did not heal properly? Are you experiencing pain on or near the treated tooth? Contact Crabapple Dental. We have the extensive training, advanced equipment and personalized care you need to get the pain relief and tooth restoration you deserve.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
