Re - Root Canal Treatment in Lahore

Re - Root Canal

A  re-root canal is a dental procedure that is performed to treat a tooth with a damaged or infected pulp (the innermost part of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels). The pulp can become infected or inflamed due to various reasons, such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the same tooth, or traumatic injury. 

Types Of Re - Root Canal

Crown Lengthening

In some cases, it might be necessary to adjust the gum and bone levels around a tooth to expose more of the tooth structure. This can provide better access for retreatment or the placement of a new crown.

Endodontic Surgery

This is another surgical option where the dentist accesses the root tip through the gum tissue to remove any infection or cyst and then seals the end of the root.

Orthodontic Retainers

Custom-made retainers are used to maintain the alignment of teeth after orthodontic treatment, such as braces.Retainers are created specifically for each patient to preserve the corrected alignment of teeth. Retainers can be made from various materials, including acrylic and wire, depending on the orthodontic needs.

Snore Guards

Snore guards, also known as mandibular advancement devices, are custom-made mouthguards designed to address snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.Some snore guards allow for adjustment to reposition the lower jaw, helping to keep the airway open during sleep.

CAUSES OF RE - ROOT CANAL

This is a standard procedure where the dentist or endodontist reopens the tooth, removes the existing filling material, and thoroughly cleans and disinfects the canals before filling them again. It’s done to address issues like persistent infection or incomplete healing. Bacteria may persist or return after the initial root canal treatment, leading to a recurrent infection. This could occur if the canals were not thoroughly cleaned, or if new infection develops over time.

Cracked or Damaged Tooth

A tooth that has undergone a root canal may become cracked or damaged over time, leading to the need for retreatment.

Undetected Canals

The tooth's root canal system is intricate, and some canals may go unnoticed during the initial treatment.

Dental Crown Replacement

If a dental crown on the treated tooth is damaged or if there are issues with its fit, it may need to be replaced..

External Trauma or Fracture

Trauma to the tooth, such as a significant blow or fracture, can compromise the effectiveness of the initial root canal treatment and may require retreatment.

How To Take Care Missing Teeth

Taking care of your oral health, especially when you have missing teeth, is important to prevent complications and maintain overall well-being. Here are some tips on how to care for missing teeth:

Floss Regularly: Floss between your remaining natural teeth and around dental appliances to remove plaque and prevent gum disease. If you have dental bridges or implants, use floss threaders or interdental brushes for effective cleaning.

Use an Antiseptic Mouthwash: Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic or fluoride mouthwash to help control bacteria and maintain oral hygiene. Consult your dentist for recommendations based on your specific needs.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly: Schedule regular dental check-ups, even if you have missing teeth. Your dentist can monitor the health of your remaining teeth, assess your gum health, and address any concerns promptly.

Consider Dental Appliances If you have missing teeth, your dentist may recommend dental appliances such as bridges, dentures, or implants to restore function and aesthetics. Follow your dentist’s instructions for care and maintenance of these appliances.

FAQs

Reendo, short for re-endodontic treatment, refers to a dental procedure where a previously treated tooth undergoes additional root canal therapy to address issues like persistent infection or new problems.

Reasons for reendo treatment include persistent or recurrent infection, incomplete cleaning in the initial root canal, new decay, or complications with the initial treatment.

Athletes involved in contact sports, individuals prone to teeth grinding (bruxism), and those with jaw issues can benefit from custom-made mouthguards.

The procedure involves reopening the tooth, removing existing filling material, cleaning and disinfecting the canals, and then refilling and sealing the tooth

Recovery time varies, but patients typically experience some discomfort for a few days. Follow-up appointments may be needed to monitor healing.

Maintaining good oral hygiene, attending regular dental check-ups, and addressing dental issues promptly can help prevent the need for reendo root canal treatment.
