Root Canal Perforation & Reinfection

When your dentist or endodontist chooses to perform a root canal for you,  it needs to be understood that they are performing an ‘above and beyond’ service for you.  This difficult procedure is very successful and is the treatment of choice when an endodontic infection occurs. However, in the event that the tooth has been treated 2 or 3 times and discomfort or pain still exists, the extraction of the tooth needs to be explored. Endodontic re-infection or perforation are reasons to explore Ridge Preservation procedures and Dental Implants.
