What is a root canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is the pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks, and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp.

Don’t Suffer From Tooth Pain Any Longer!

Pain in your tooth or gums may be a symptom of infected pulp. Dr. Mavec can perform a Root Canal to treat the infected pulp, relieve pain, and save your natural teeth!

The Root Canal Procedure

This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 94% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment.

Conscious Sedation Dentistry

We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia, if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

Root Canal FAQs

What happens after treatment?

When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

Are Root Canals Painful?

Endodontist Dr. Mavec and the American Association of Endodontists want you to have accurate information about Root Canal treatment. Please refer to our additional page of root canal information and call our office with your questions: Ponte Vedra Beach Endodontics Office Phone Number 904-273-5770.

How much does root canal therapy cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Patient Review by S T

Dr. Joseph Mavec did a second root canal procedure on molars #18 and #31 due to them failing rather quickly by another endodontist at the first attempt. I am a former public servant and had a habit of grinding my teeth. This was over ten years ago, but a general dentist and a periodontist commented recently on the genius and skill it took to save my molars due to their unusual multiple branches at the end. One said Dr. Mavec is brilliant, and another said his work belongs in a textbook. I am not one to write reviews, but I believe Dr. Mavec deserves this one.
