Root canal treatment is a procedure used to treat infection at the center of the root canal system. It is one of the best ways to prolong the life of the affected natural tooth in your mouth. Almost any infected tooth can be saved with root canal therapy and avoid tooth extraction.
A root canal treated tooth has fillings inside the root that replace the nerve tissue. This treatment is a painless dental procedure completed in a single visit which keeps the tooth free from pain and infection.
There are various techniques used for RCT such as - single visit RCT, laser RCT, rotary endodontics, surgical endodontics, restoration of multiple severely damaged teeth with crowns and bridges and cosmetic dental procedures.
