Root Canal Treatment in Myrtle Beach
Inside your tooth’s hard outer shell of enamel and dentin is a nourishing pulp of blood vessels, lymph vessels and nerves. The root canals, which contain the pulp, extend to the bone.
Deep tooth decay, or an injury, can cause serious damage and infection to the pulp’s nerves and vessels.
If left untreated this can cause an abscess spreading to the area outside of the tooth. Once the pulp is infected, the options for treatment are: Root Canal Treatment or Extraction.
Root canal, or endodontic, treatment cleans out the infected pulp chamber and repairs the damage. By doing this the tooth can be saved.
