Root Canal Treatment
A tooth has three layers enamel, dentin and pulp. When cavity is deep and reached the pulp, RCT is required to be done.
› This includes removal of entire infection from within the tooth; all canals in root are cleaned and medicament is placed. The tooth is then sealed to prevent infection after RCT.
› After RCT is performed, the tooth turns brittle and weak. This is why post RCT placing a crown is extremely important for protecting the tooth.
› Placing a crown aids tooth becoming strong and capable to withstand forces as the normal tooth.
› Now-a-days even badly broken teeth are saved by RCT and rebuilding with metal or white fiber post n core as long as 1-2 mm of tooth is visible.
