Dentist showing patient dental x-raysFollowing the loss of one or more teeth, the jawbone and gum tissue no longer receive stimulus from tooth roots.

The Dentist in Tysons Corner Retreats Failed Root Canals

August 30, 2016

Filed under: Endodontics,Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Dr. Farshad Farhoumand @ 9:15 pm

Is the pain back in a tooth with a root canal? Contact the dentist in Tysons Corner for retreatment. A root canal is a dental procedure designed to treat an infected tooth. Infection can begin deep within the pulp chamber of your tooth when extensive tooth decay, a fracture or a crack gives bacteria access to this area. During root canal therapy, the infected contents of the pulp chamber and the attached canals are cleaned, disinfected and sealed. The vast majority of root canals are successful. However, as with any medical or dental procedure, root canals do not come with a 100 percent guarantee and some become reinfected. In this case, the dentist in Tysons Corner at Avanti Dentistry will perform root canal retreatment.
