  • Do you know any endodontists in the Stroudsburg PA area that do not charge so much money for this kind of treatment?

  • Abcess cannot heal completely with antibiotics though for sometime it can regress and its intensity can decrease. Temporary relief will be there with antibiotics but again abscess will form till it is drained out by doing the Root Canal Treatment.

  • Can an abscess be healed with antibiotic alone or do you absolutely have to have another root canal?

  • If the root canal treated tooth develops an abcess that can be treated. For that re root canal treatment is done. The old root canal filling is removed and after ceaning the root canals of the tooth the root canals are again filled. The sucess rate of re root canal is not as good as the first time root canal but if proper case selection is done then it is quite successful.For more info on re root canal treatment you can visit the following
