Root Canal Therapy Explained:
The purpose of a root canal therapy treatment is to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal of a tooth, prevent reinfection and save the natural tooth. Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development. During a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed. Call or stop by one of our dental clinic offices in Minnetonka or Maple Grove and one of our dental professionals will answer any additional questions you have.
