In addition to our regular services, Creekbridge Dental in Brooklyn Park, MN offers root canal treatment to patients as well. Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.

Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems. Small pockets of puss can begin to develop, which can lead to an abscess.

Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success, and involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth.

Root Canal Therapy Includes:

  • One to three visits
  • First, a small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber.
  • The diseased tissue is removed, the inner chamber cleansed and disinfected, and the tiny canals reshaped
  • The cleansed chamber and canals are filled with an elastic material and medication designed to prevent infection.
  • Most patients who have root canal experience little or no discomfort or pain

With root canal therapy, your tooth can be saved and restored; before this therapy was created the only option to treat an infection was to remove the tooth completely.
