Need a Root Canal in Niagara Falls? Let Us Take Care of Your Teeth

Taking good care of your teeth is an important part of maintaining your overall health. By visiting your dentist regularly and following recommendations for daily cleaning, you can keep your oral health good for life. At Frizzell Family Dental we can provide general dentistry services like cleanings, checkups and fluoride applications as well as preventative measures such as a root canal in our Niagara Falls location.

Root Canals

Root canals are performed when the pulp within the root canal of the tooth becomes infected, injured or dies completely. This damaged pulp must be removed to prevent further dental problems.

The pulp becomes infected when bacteria enter the tooth through deep cavities, cracks or damaged fillings. Once infected, the pulp must be removed and is done through a procedure at your dentist’s office. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area and the dentist then makes an opening in the tooth to reach the root canal system. Using very fine dental instruments, the dentist removes the pulp by cleaning the system. Once completed, the root canal system is sealed as well as the tooth. If you need a root canal in Niagara Falls, consult with our experienced team.

Fluoride Applications

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in some foods and water. This mineral is important in preventing tooth decay as it makes the teeth resistant to attacks of plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. Fluoride can even help to reverse early tooth decay.

Though fluoride can be found in foods, sometimes this is not enough to keep the teeth healthy, so many dentists perform fluoride applications at their offices. These applications are done using a gel, foam or varnish and are most often completed during the same appointment as teeth cleanings.

For all of your general and preventative dentistry needs, be sure to contact Frizzell Family Dental to schedule an appointment.
