A cracked tooth in Jacksonville, FL can happen to anyone at any time. Whether chewing food, playing sports, or even sleeping, dental problems can strike surprisingly quickly. Sometimes the crack is barely noticeable, other time the body of the tooth fractures dramatically. To save the tooth at that point a root canal procedure is urgently needed.
For patients living with a cracked tooth in Jacksonville, early treatment is also recommend. If left alone, complications with the damaged tooth can be painful and can lead to infection of the pulp. Causes of damage to the inner structure and roots of the teeth include:
- Decay reaching deep down into the tooth
- Injury or hard impact to the teeth
- Grinding or clenching teeth
- Advanced periodontitis

Using special tools and drawing on his advanced training in endodontics, Dr. Sandor clears a canal in the center of the root space. He then fills and seals the area thoroughly.
