Root canal treatment consists of cleaning infection and pus inside the tooth by using tiny files through rotary system. During RCT all the living tissue (pulp) inside the teeth consisting of blood vessels, nerves and cellular components is removed. After that roots inside the tooth are cleaned, reshaped, irrigated and sealed with Gutta Percha. Thus RCT clears the tooth of all the infection and make it pain free and preserves its functionality.
Although it sounds simple, RCT is the most sophisticated dental procedure with treatment success depending entirely on the expertise of treating dentist and his equipment. If your teeth is damaged and filling is not possible than it requires Root Canal Treatment and possibly a crown after that.
