Root Canal Treatment

About Treatment

Enamel, dentin, and pulp make up the three layers that make up a tooth's crown. Fillings and restorations can be used to treat tooth decay that only affects the first two layers.
An RCT or endodontic treatment is required if the tooth decay extends to the third layer of the tooth and results in pulp inflammation or infection.

The root canal operation, commonly referred to as endodontic treatment, is carried out when the pulp, the tooth's deepest layer, becomes inflamed due to dental decay. The injured tooth must be kept from extraction. 


A root canal specialist known as an endodontist performs this treatment. The process entails
1. Removal of inflamed or infected tooth material
2. Cleaning and disinfection
3. Filling and sealing with an inert material
4. Restoration and crown/cap
It is a multi-step procedure and may require multiple sittings.


Root Canal Treatment is done on a damaged or infected tooth. Infection could be due to a
cracked or broken tooth, deep decay, gum diseases or maybe due to repeated dental treatment
on a particular tooth. It becomes extremely important to get the Root Canal Treatment as:
1. It stops the infection from spreading and will then save the tooth from extraction
2. RCT relieves the pain caused due to inflammationne for precise information


1. A toothache is the most typical sign that someone could need root canal therapy.
From little to severe pain is possible. The pain could get stronger with time, and eventually you might even feel it when you bite into food.
2. Prolonged sensitivity is the second factor. There is a minor possibility that one needs to undergo root canal treatment if they have tooth sensations after eating hot or cold foods.
3. Gum swelling can also indicate the necessity for root canal therapy.
4. RCT reduces inflammation-related pain while providing the precise data required to prevent extraction of the affected tooth. A root canal specialist known as an endodontist performs this treatment.
