Buffalo Endodontist Explains How We Repair a Root Canal that Didn’t Heal Correctly
As an experienced Buffalo Endodontist, I often talk about using endodontic surgery to repair a root canal that didn’t heal correctly.
- In certain cases, when a prior root canal is not working, we might have to perform an endodontic surgery called an apicoectomy.
- If a prior root canal hasn’t healed the way it was expected to, we can do a reverse root canal, remove whatever is unhealthy, and enable the patient to save the tooth.
- The major advantage of this procedure is that we can help save the tooth without affecting any of the patient’s restorative work, so they won’t have to revisit their dentist.
