Post-Root Canal Treatment Western MA


Quite a few things may result in additional problems following a root canal therapy. Sometimes the entire problem wasn't eliminated during therapy and in different cases, a new infection might have developed in the tooth. After the tooth demonstrates signs of disease again, our team of endodontic specialists will normally recommend an endodontic retreatment.


• Abscess or other signs of disease still present following a root canal

• Recurring discomfort or pain in the tooth that received root canal therapy

• Accessory canals were not detected during the initial root canal procedure

• Failure to have a crown or other dental restoration placed in a timely manner following initial root canal treatment

ERIC SHAPIRO, D.D.S. and Staff saved my tooth! They where professional and compassion toward me. I wish I could remember the name of the fine young women who assisted the Doctor, but they were a fine team. I am so thankful to both of them.

I had an exceptional experience with Dr. Shapiro and his team. Despite my anxiety and the short notice, he was able to perform a root canal within an hour of my call. Dr. Shapiro and his staff were incredibly kind and compassionate, making me feel heard and understood. The office atmosphere is welcoming and professional. I’m so grateful for the referral and couldn’t be happier with the care I received. Highly recommend!

If endodontic retreatment isn’t ideal, our specialists may recommend additional procedures to treat the condition and save your oral health:

• Apicoectomy

• Tooth extraction

Your endodontic retreatment procedure will be done in our office using anesthesia to temporarily numb the needed region. In the event the process is lengthy or if you have dental worries, stronger sedation choices might be used. As soon as you are prepared, one of our specialists will open the tooth and then take out the filling substance placed in the last process. The inside of the tooth, especially each of the root tips, will be completely disinfected. Once the tooth is cleaned and analyzed, it'll be fortified with a new temporary filling and then sealed.

A new restoration (crown, filling, or bridge) is then normally placed on the treated tooth by your general dentist to protect and strengthen the tooth structure.
