Post & Core

Severely decayed or broken teeth, or teeth that have had a root canal, may need additional support before they can be restored. Without reinforcement, the tooth cannot hold the force of eating and chewing. One option to add the much needed support to the tooth is called post and core.

Severely decayed or broken teeth, or teeth that have had a root canal, may need additional support before they can be restored. Without reinforcement, the tooth cannot hold the force of eating and chewing. One option to add the much needed support to the tooth is called post and core.

During this procedure, a post is drilled into the root of the tooth. Then a core is placed on top of the post, giving it sustainability. These two pieces work together to give your tooth the additional support it needs to withstand daily activities like chewing.

To help prevent needing this procedure in the future, make sure you take proper care of your teeth and visit Frankel Dentistry twice a year.

Patient Testimonials

Very professional, positive experience having my teeth cleaned. From the friendly greeting by the receptionist, to the assistant who escorted me to my room, to the hygienist who cleaned my teeth--and the final check-in by Dr. Frankel, I felt well treated and in great hands.

Excellent as always. My wife & I have been going to Frankel's since the late '60's, and have no plans to change.

Thanks to the amazing staff who did an Awesome job at making my 5 yr olds first experience with a filling a positive one. The first thing she said when she was finished was "everyone is so nice."
