What If I Need a Root Canal?

In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, an experienced Melbourne dentist explains how we determine if a root canal is necessary and the process for treating abscessed teeth.

People call our office with pain, and sometimes they’ll say they need a root canal. Well, what we find is best is to come in so we can take a radiograph and evaluate the area to see what options there are. Sometimes we can perform that root canal for you right here in the office. Other times, the tooth may be too far gone and will have to be removed. But we actually have options to replace that tooth for you. So give the office a call so we can get you in and help you.

If you or someone you love is suffering from tooth pain, contact Dr. Victor C. Apel at Designing Smiles Dentistry in Melbourne for a free consultation to learn how our innovative treatments can improve your oral health and enhance your well-being. Call now and let us give you something to smile about.

MEET VICTOR C. APEL, DMD

Dr. Apel has been in practice in Melbourne since 1988. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, he graduated from the University of Louisville’s School of Dental Medicine, a facility for training physicians and dentists. He maintained a successful private practice in Louisville for five years, but Florida’s pleasant climate and the promise of year-round outside activities brought the Apels to the sunshine state.

Dr. Apel is a member in good standing with the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Brevard County Dental Society, the International Academy of Mini Dental Implants, and recently earned his fellowship with the International Dental Implant Association. He also maintains ongoing professional relationships with recognized researchers and clinicians.

Dr. Apel is dedicated to providing you with the latest proven treatment methods, participates regularly in courses and seminars and is now a Mini Implant Center of America (MDICA) providing you with revolutionary benefits of mini dental implant dentistry.
