Microscopic Endodontics – Microscopic Root Canal Treatment

Over the past several years, Dr. Frank Vidjak and Dr. Fanny Yacaman have distinguished themselves as leading endodontists with their state-of-the-art technologies. In fact, with her extensive use of the microscope, Dr. Yacaman is recognized as the premier specialist in the country in microscopic endodontics. She executes insurmountable skills in performing root canal treatments utilizing magnification lenses, microscopes, years of experience, and world-class training. Dr. Yacaman uses the camera to videotape and take pictures to show patients where the problems are. With this microscopic technology, Dr. Yacaman is able to find calcified canals, extra canals, and cracks inside the root.   

Dr. Fanny Yacaman has gained the trust of many celebrities and high-ranking government officials who travel from around the world to be seen by her. Her experience, quick wit, and attention to detail put her in a class of her own.

Signs and symptoms that may indicate root canal treatment is needed can vary. Most patients feel pain when they bite or chew or are sensitive to hot and cold food or beverages. Other patients notice gum swelling or complain of feeling like they have a “pimple” on their gums. These symptoms may be caused by bacteria which causes decay, and as a result of these factors, the patient develops an infection. This infection needs to be stopped as it is not only wreaking havoc in the mouth but can also affect other parts of the body. If the infection spreads to the tooth pulp, a root canal should be performed to clean the bacteria out of the tooth roots so they can be sealed to ensure no more bacteria enters. If the infection is not controlled on time, it may spread to other places in the face, brain, or throughout the whole body. (There is also a proven relation between heart attacks and oral bacteria.)

Patients who need root canal treatment have the option to see a special type of dentist who has gone through two years of additional training solely focused on root canal treatments. This specialist is called an endodontist. Beverly Hills Endodontists Dr. Fanny Yacaman and Dr. Frank Vidjak have more than a decade of experience practicing root canal treatment and related endodontic issues. Their personal fascination with teeth roots and root resorption benefits their patients as this passion translates into exceptional care. Trauma is one of the biggest causes of root resorption, internal and external, so in these situations, Dr. Yacaman monitors patients every 2 to 3 weeks. Restoring patients’ health quickly, painlessly, and effectively is her priority.

The Los Angeles Endodontic team at the Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry is happy to treat patients with any level of dental anxiety. With the help of these skilled endodontists, fearful patients become calm and relaxed within minutes. Patients often refer to their dental practice as a dental spa. Through the use of breathing exercises, aromatherapy, and ambient music, patients feel calm throughout the entire root canal treatment process. If deeper relaxation is required, sedation dentistry is provided upon request.

Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry is conveniently located on Roxbury Drive, right on the corner of Little Santa Monica, in the heart of Beverly Hills. Her office can be found toward the top of a large medical building and boasts beautiful views of the city.
