Hani Ounsi

A Pragmatic Approach to Retreatment


Endodontic retreatment is a challenging proposal for any dentist. Restoring access to the root canal system, reacquiring patency, and re-engineering the shape is a prerequisite to the proper disinfection and three-dimensional sealing that will ensure healing. Only proper decision making and using proper tools and techniques can lead the practitioner to an optimal outcome. This presentation will focus on the decision-making process as well as the required tools and techniques to perform successful retreatment procedures.
