Endodontic Retreatment
Hatboro, Doylestown, and Ardmore PA

With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. Sometimes, the pain may occur months or years after treatment. If so, Endodontic Retreatment may be needed.

Are you experiencing tooth pain? Please call us for more information or to schedule a consult at our Hatboro Office: Hatboro Phone Number 215-674-5383, our Doylestown Office: 215-348-0727, or our Ardmore Office: Ardmore Phone Number 610-649-5235.

Improper healing may be caused by:

  • Curved or narrow canals that were not treated during the initial treatment.
  • Complicated canals that went undetected during the initial treatment.
  • The crown or restoration was not placed within the appropriate amount of time following the procedure.
  • The crown or restoration that did not prevent saliva from contaminating the inside of the tooth.

In some cases, new problems can influence a tooth that was successfully treated:

  • New decay can expose a root canal filling material, causing infection.
  • A cracked or loose filling or crown can expose the tooth to new infection.

Once retreatment has been selected as a solution to your problem, the doctors 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 doctors will now clean your canals and carefully examine the inside of the problematic tooth. Once cleaned, the doctors will fill and seal the canals and place a temporary filling in the tooth.

At this point, you will need to return to your dentist as soon as possible in order to have a new crown or restoration placed on the tooth to restore full functionality.

I would like to compliment all of the staff and the doctor. The doctor explained to me exactly what was going on and how he would go about solving my problem. I felt no pain and the doctor gave me the best needles I have ever received. He explained what he was doing during the procedure and made me as comfortable as possible. Even though I was the last appointment on a Friday afternoon. no one seemed like they were rushing me out the door. I would like to recognize the staff at the Hatboro office on Friday afternoon December 16th. Thank you all for providing excellent service.

Seven years ago, I had a root canal done by a dentist who (I later discovered) was not vey competent. That tooth had been giving me problems off and on. That is why I went to Dr Kirsch last week. He is a thorough professional, very competent, has tons of experience and is extremely user-friendly. All the procedures involved were explained very lucidly and carried out dexterously. The staff and dental assistants too were very pleasant and knew their jobs.
