Good dental health is crucial to your overall health. Dr. Gaff provides knowledgeable, quality dental care to patients in Jacksonville, St. Augustine and surrounding Florida cities.
What is a Root Canal in Jacksonville, FL?
A root canal is a procedure to treat and save damaged and infected teeth. Your teeth contain tiny passageways called root canals that contain pulp (blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) which nourishes your teeth. When that pulp becomes infected or decayed, it is removed by performing a root canal treatment.
How is a Root Canal Performed in Jacksonville, FL?
Most root canal treatments are performed in one visit. Dr. Gaff will numb your gums surrounding the affected tooth so that patients don’t feel any pain during the procedure. He will then use a very fine drill to create a small hole in the top or back of the tooth to access the pulp and remove the infection.
Next, the canal will be prepared to receive a filling, and then the tooth is permanently sealed with a crown. Your newly restored tooth has the potential to remain healthy for a very long time.
