Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment or RCT is done to Save Natural teeth.

RCT is a treatment to repair and save a badly destructed or decayed tooth. The procedure involves removing the infected and damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), then cleaning and disinfecting it with chelating agents, irrigants and then filling and sealing it. The common causes affecting the pulp are dental caries, cracked teeth, multiple dental treatments to the tooth or trauma. The term "root canal" comes from cleaning and disinfecting of the canals inside the tooth's root.

A cavity in the tooth leaves an area where bacteria enter and multiply. If it's left without any treatment, then bacteria will cause infections and form periodontal pockets or dental abscesses filled with pus which causes severe pain and swelling spreading to other areas of the face or head. Serious dental infections bring about bone loss around the tip of the tooth's roots.
