Root Canal Treatment

If a tooth is decayed/infected upto the pulp or has severe trauma, then, the pulp which contains the blood vessels, nerves etc may be permanently damaged. In such cases, to save the tooth structure, a root canal treatment is performed. Once the damaged, diseased or dead pulp is removed, the remaining space is cleaned, shaped and filled. This prolongs the life of the tooth structure.

Many a times, a crown/cap is recommended after a RCT.
