Root canal treatment or RCT is one of the most commonly done dental procedures and for some people it remains the most dreaded one. (Dr Shikha provides you with safe anesthesia to provide pain free root canal treatment and make you comfortable.)
In the simplest of terms this procedure consists of cleaning infection inside the tooth using tiny files and rotary system. During this procedure all the living tissue inside the teeth i.e. called pulp (blood vessels + nerves + cellular components) is removed. The remaining hollow structure inside the tooth is then cleaned, reshaped, irrigated and sealed with Gutta Percha. This procedure clears the tooth of all the infection and makes it pain free and preserves its functionality.
Although it sounds simple, RCT is the most sophisticated dental procedure with treatment success depending majorly on the expertise of treating dentist and his armory.
