If decay reaches the pulp of the tooth, it can cause bacteria to build up, ultimately resulting in an infection. In most cases, infections inside the tooth require a root canal procedure. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Henrickson, can perform this procedure to remove the infection and preserve your tooth. If you or a member of your family have signs of a tooth infection, please contact the office of Henrickson Dental at 651-777-8900. Our team has the experience necessary to treat patients who need root canals in Maplewood, Minnesota.
