Gateway Dental is pleased to offer root canals and other endodontic procedures to our Charlottetown patients.
It’s likely you’ve heard of a root canal, but you might not know exactly what it is or why it might be necessary. A root canal is a simple procedure that saves an injured tooth from extraction. When a tooth is injured or decayed, the pulp – made of sensitive nerves, arterioles, and tissues – might become damaged as well. If so, your dentist may extract the damaged pulp and seal off the space, saving your injured tooth and relieving you of pain.
