Root Canal Therapy in Jupiter, FL
A root canal can help save your tooth if it’s in pain and the cavity has spread toward its root. When you have extensive tooth decay, that pain comes from the decayed tissue extending to the tooth’s pulp, which is where all of its nerves are held — that’s why you feel it. If you are experiencing pain in your teeth, we highly encourage you to contact us to schedule an appointment. It could save your teeth and keep you from a more expensive treatment down the road.
Dr. Jay Ajmo is a decorated doctor with a mastership from the renowned Misch International Implant Institute and is a diplomate of the ICOI and ABOI. Our facilities are clean and modern, and our staff is spectacular, which is why Jupiter patients come to us.

Symptoms of Cavities and Tooth Decay
If you are experiencing these symptoms, we recommend you call a dentist:
- Toothache – especially spontaneous or seemingly causeless pain
- Tooth sensitivity
- Black, brown, or white staining on any surface of the tooth
- Pain when you bite
- Pain when eating sweet foods, or hot or cold foods
During your regular hygienic cleanings at the dentist’s, we look for cavities precisely because they can spread and get worse. If you are experiencing the symptoms above, don’t hesitate to contact us.
There’s no risk in going to the dentist to at least see what the problem is.
How a Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth
Cavities come from tooth decay, which is a bacterial infection. These bacteria will continue to spread to nearby tissue, meaning the cavity will grow and extend. If it reaches the pulp and damages the tissues there, including your nerves and blood vessels, it can lead to the loss of the tooth.
Furthermore, bacterial infections can also form in the gums, and this can cause the gums to recede. If the infection damages too much gum line or bone tissue, the tissue of the jaw that holds your teeth in place, then your teeth can loosen and fall out.
When this happens, a restorative treatment is needed to replace the tooth. All of this can be avoided by simply seeing the dentist before the condition reaches this point.
The Root Canal Procedure
Our foremost priority is to save as much of the natural tooth as possible. The more we reserve, the stronger that tooth will be after the procedure.
Dr. Jessica Wyatt and Dr. Ajmo will remove the decayed tissue, stop the infection, and clean any tartar and plaque from your teeth. The removed tissue will then be replaced by a tooth-colored filling, which is safe, stunningly natural-looking, and long-lasting.
If the tooth decay has spread too far into the tooth, it may need to be extracted. In this case, we will recommend a restorative treatment, such as a dental implant or a dental bridge.
