When the pulp of your tooth is infected due to decay, cracks, or trauma, Dr. Jeff Olson can perform a root canal to remove the affected nerve inside the root and restore the functionality of your tooth. Root canal therapy effectively removes the infection while allowing the tooth to maintain its natural strength, and prevents extraction from becoming necessary. To learn more about root canal therapy in Burnsville, Minnesota, and make your appointment with our dentist, please call Oak Ridge Dental today at 952-435-0355. Depending on the severity of infection and the location of the tooth, we may refer you to a specialist.
