Root Canal Treatment

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.
