In some cases, new problems can influence a tooth that was successfully treated. This can happen through new decay exposing a root canal filling material, causing a crack or loose filling to new infection.
Once re-treatment has been selected as a solution to your problem, the endodontist will reopen your tooth to gain access to the root canal filling material. This restorative material will be removed to enable access to the root canal. The endodontist will then clean your canals and carefully examine the inside of the problematic tooth. Once cleaned, the endodontist will fill and seal the canals and place a temporary filling in the tooth.
You do not need to suffer from any more pain, as the dentist will make sure that you are not in any more pain, through very carefully conducting anaesthesia, if necessary.
