Root Canal Treatment Renewal


Many patients think that the solution after unsuccessful root canal treatments is to have that tooth extracted. However, thanks to today’s developing dental technologies, it is possible to recover teeth by successfully renewing root canal treatment.

Anatomical factors that cause failure in root canal treatment can be detected by three-dimensional imaging systems.

In addition, thin canals that cannot be seen with the naked eye can be examined under a microscope with a magnification of up to 24 times, reaching the areas where hand tools cannot reach with laser beams, removing the previously filled canal filling and remaining nerve residues and reproducing them in a way that prevents the reproduction of bacteria. Thus, it may be possible to save many inflamed teeth that normally need to be extracted.


Dental abscesses often occur as a pronounced swelling in the gums at the root level of deep decayed teeth or teeth with failed root canal treatment. When the factors causing abscess are eliminated, dental abscesses heal in a very short time. What is important is that an experienced physician can accurately determine the source of the abscess.

Teeth with root tip abscess can also damage surrounding anatomical tissues. Especially in many people with sinus infections (sinusitis), the source of infection can be mostly inflammed teeth.

As dental abscesses grow, they cause bone loss as they grow by melting the bone around them, and as a result of these losses, neighboring teeth may also be damaged.
