Root Canal - Bicuspids and Anteriors
Dr. Frank can heal an infected tooth when he performs root canal therapy. Dr. Frank and team will remove the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues from inside of your teeth and fill their place with medicated materials so your mouth can heal.
Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, he will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the
tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. He will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to Dr. Frank's skilled techniques, tools and local anesthesia. Dr. Frank, along with our dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office.
