Root Canal Re-Treatment in Clinton & Waldrof, MD
Sometimes root canals that were done previously can get re-infected and it might need a retreatment. The primary reason for failure of root canal is persistent bacteria.

- A permanent filling and crown was not done in a timely manner causing leakage to the root canal system.
- Previously treated root canal space was not sufficiently cleaned or has missed canal spaces.
- Crack developing over time causing bacteria to re-enter the root space and hence causing infection.
- Natural tooth structure becomes decayed and causes bacteria to re-enter the space causing infection.
