A tooth has three layers enamel, dentin and pulp. When cavity is deep and has reached the
pulp, RCT is required to be done.
The procedure is entirely painless and includes removal of entire infection from within the
tooth; all the root canals are cleaned and medicament is placed. The tooth is then sealed to
prevent infection after RCT procedure.
After RCT is performed, the tooth turns brittle and weak. This is why, post the RCT
procedure, placing a crown is extremely important for protecting the tooth.
Placing a crown strengthens the tooth, making it more capable to withstand forces as the
Now-a- days even badly broken teeth are saved by RCT and rebuilding with metal or white
fiber posts & core.
Single sitting RCT procedures can also be performed in selected cases, saving precious time
for the patient.
