Endodontic Retreatment: When To Hold And When To Fold

30 years ago, teeth with failed endodontic treatment were extracted or retreated. If the patient did not want to be left with a space, wear a denture and a bridge was not possible, then endodontic retreatment was usually the default option. Accordingly, some teeth underwent complex endodontic and restorative re-treatments with disappointing long-term outcomes. From the early 1990s osseo-integration changed the game and provided a real aternative to complex restorative retreatment. Despite prophecies that endodontics would disappear it has remained an integral part of 21st century dentistry. Just as osseo-integration has evolved at an extraordinary pace over the last 30 years so has modern endodontics. The analysis of teeth with failed endodontic treatment is a complex issue but with modern imaging and microscopic restorative techniques predictable outcomes can be achieved. The clinical and radiographic analysis of teeth with failed endodontic treatment will be discussed.
