Root canal therapy is often necessary when decay has reached the center of a tooth (the pulp) in an effort to save the tooth from further damage.
Root Canal Retreatment
Root Canal retreatment is needed when an infection develops after a root canal or if the infection was not fully removed during the root canal.
An apicoectomy treats the infection in the tips of the tooth root after a root canal without disturbing restorations like crowns or dental bridges.
