The Benefits of Endodontic Retreatment

Takes You Out of Pain

Struggling with an infected tooth is extremely uncomfortable. In just one short visit, endodontic retreatment can get you out of pain almost instantly.During the procedure, your mouth will be completely numbed, and you can even select a sedation option if you would like. Endodontic retreatment is one of the most efficient ways to soothe the pain and discomfort of an infected tooth, which can be excruciating.


Opting for endodontic retreatment can help you prevent costly procedures in the long run. A tooth extraction can take longer than root canal treatment due to follow-up appointments required for a denture, bridge, or implant; which can increase the overall cost. While every insurance is different, most plans cover endodontic treatment, so you can get the affordable care you need.

Looks & Feels Natural

After your endodontic treatment is complete, your endodontist will place a crown that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. Not only will this improve the overall health and function of your smile, but it can also boost your confidence, too!
