I've had very good success rate with retreatments. But then again I only retreat the easy ones and refer out the tough ones to my endodontist. I usually enlarge the canal to a wider diameter and irrigate with bleach. Any concentration of bleach you recommend?

Dr. Jameson, Dr. Nasseh uses a bleach range of 2.25%-6%, based on whether he's using positive or negative pressure (higher concentration with negative pressure).
