Orthograde Re-treatment of Failed Root Canal Treatments:
Unfortunately a number of patients who have received endodontic therapy a while ago, are faced with the probability of failure of that treatment. Patients may show up with clinical discomforts such as acute / dull pain, swelling or fistula. In such circumstances, after assessing crown restorability, we attempt to save the tooth by redoing the failed RCT.
In some cases, there is a asymptomatic failed RCT with a worn out restoration requiring to change the cap. Prior to changing the restoration, redo of the failed root canal therapy is indicated.
