Root Canal Reshaping Surgery

When the tooth’s pulp (the central part) becomes infected or inflamed, the need for root canal treatment or reshaping becomes more urgent.

Although it may not be recognized as the most comfortable experience, root canal treatments encompass common conservative procedures with a success rate exceeding 90%.

In general, the primary objective of the root canal procedure is to support a tooth that has suffered significant damage or severe infection. Often, an endodontist or a root canal specialist carries out this procedure.

However, there are rare instances where root canal therapy fails to yield the expected outcomes. The treated tooth may not heal properly or patients may encounter complications that jeopardize the tooth's viability.

To address such cases, root canal retreatment or “reshaping” comes into play. This course of action involves the removal of the previous crown and packing material, followed by a thorough cleansing of the root canals.

Subsequently, the tooth is re-packed and re-crowned. In essence, root canal retreatment closely mirrors the original procedure except for structural removal.

Benefits of Root Canal Reshaping Surgery

The benefits of root canal treatment are numerous:

The Process of Root Canal Reshaping Surgery

During the root canal shaping procedure, your dentist may follow the steps below:

1. Accessing the pulp

Once the tooth and surrounding areas are sufficiently numbed, your endodontist will create a small opening. This can be achieved by drilling through the crown or the biting surface of the tooth.

2. Removing infected pulp

Using specialized tools, your endodontist will carefully remove the infected pulp from the root canals and reshape the roots, if necessary.

3. Filling & sealing

The prepared canals are then filled with a material called gutta-percha, which serves as the root canal filling. This material is carefully inserted to ensure complete coverage.

Risks of Root Canal Reshaping Surgery

Despite the proper execution of reshaping treatment, patients may encounter tooth sensitivity after the procedure.

This sensitivity can arise due to unique tooth structures. Some of the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure also include:
