Technical retreatment (by Ilya Mer)

Some teeth are needed to be retreated in case of new restoration comes. Everything looks inadequate (rest and obturation quality) but result. There are no symptoms and no apical rarefaction. Do we need to retreat in this case? Yes you do! Would I retreat if tooth doesn’t need new rest? Good question. What’s your opinion?
