What is RCT?

Root canal therapy is a dental treatment for removing an infection from a decayed or fractured or dead tooth. It is carried out in the pulp of the tooth, which is located in the core of the crown & root of the tooth. It also protects the tooth from future infections.

What are the indications of RCT?
  • Decayed tooth
  • Painful tooth
  • Non-vital or dead tooth
  • Trauma exposing the pulp
  • Grossly attrided tooth
  • Intentional RCT
How RCT is done?
1. A Deep Infection

Root canal treatment is needed when the root becomes infected or inflamed through an injury or a large cavity exposes the tooth's pulp.

2. Route to reach the pulp of the tooth

If it is painful, the dentist may numb the tooth. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber.

3. Removing the Infected/Inflamed Tissue

The infection is cleaned and unhealthy pulp is removed out of the canals through special files. After that, they shape the canals for the filling material. Irrigation method is used to help clean the canals and remove debris.

4. Filling the Canals

The canals are filled with a permanent inert rubber material called gutta-percha cones. This helps to keep the canals free of infection or contamination & fills the dead space.

5. Rebuilding the tooth

The temporary filling material is installed on top of the gutta-percha to seal the opening. The filling remains until the tooth receives a permanent filling or a crown. A crown, seldom known as a cap is placed over the top of the tooth which similarly looks like a natural tooth.

6. Extra Support

In some cases to give the crown more support, a post is placed into the root next to the gutta-percha.
