Root Canal Treatment ( RCT)

A root canal is a dental treatment that cures the nerve inside of tooth so that tooth can be saved from extraction. The space present inside the root of the tooth comprising of blood vessels and nerve supply to the tooth is referred to as root canal. Root canal treatment is indicated in cases of damaged and infected teeth and involves cleaning and shaping the root canal space followed by restoration of the space with a filling material. The process of disinfecting the root canal and restoring the same requires 2-3 sittings. Lately, single sitting root canal treatment is done in most cases which results in better patient cooperation.
