Fillings are used to fix a tooth that has been damaged by decay. We remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the affected and surrounding areas then fill the cavity with a material so that the tooth can function normally.
A root canal is performed when a tooth is badly decayed or its root becomes infected. During this procedure, the nerve and pulp is removed while the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed off. This will relieve any pain you are experiencing from the infection.
We are happy to accept patients from across Minnetonka, MN as well as Excelsior, MN. For an appointment, call the office directly.
