When Tooth Pain Persists After Treatment

If you see your dentist out of concern for active tooth pain, you should look forward to treatment that puts your discomfort behind you. Unfortunately, there are times when pain can return, or when it can continue to be an issue. What can you do in this circumstance? It is sometimes necessary to perform retreatment. This simply means that a follow-up procedure is necessary after root canal therapy. Sunny Smiles can provide this service for you so that you no longer have to worry about lingering discomfort, or fear that your tooth is still in poor health.

Should I Be Worried If My Tooth Still Hurts After Restorative Treatment?

If you go in to see your dentist about active pain or an alarming degree of sensitivity, you may learn that you need root canal therapy. A root canal deals with problems like advanced decay and internal damage after physical trauma. Problems within the tooth structure will worsen over time without treatment, which can lead to unpleasant complications as well as more discomfort. However, you should enjoy a recovery from these issues after your procedure is performed. So what does it mean to have discomfort after a procedure? Whether you continue to feel this pain or start to feel it after an extended period of time, it can point to a problem that will call for retreatment.

We Can Provide Retreatment When Required

Retreatment is available if you still have problems, or if new problems arise, after a root canal. Your dentist can evaluate the tooth to see if any damages or signs of decay were missed during your initial procedure, address them, and then restore the tooth again to support it. While this can occur shortly after your first treatment, patients can also develop new problems over time if they do not have good preventive efforts in place.
