What is Root Canal Therapy (RCT)?
RCT is the savior of any decaying tooth. Root
Canal Therapy (RCT) is a dental treatment which
involves repair work to save a severely damaged
or infected tooth. RCT is done to ensure that the
infection inside the tooth is removed. This
further safeguards the tooth from future
When is RCT required?
A Root Canal Treatment is usually recommended
when the infection has spread much deeper within
the tooth. The infection has infected the pulp
inside the tooth and the injury or damage is so
severe that if it remains without treatment, it
finally may lead to extraction of tooth. Hence,
when your dental surgeon suggests you for an RCT,
dont ignore their words and take the right
actions necessary for saving your tooth.
Benefits of RCT
Root Canal treatment can save a tooth which will
otherwise need to be removed. The cost of losing
a tooth is way higher than what money can
buy. The value of each and every tooth will be
clear to us when we are old enough. But, it is
wise to do every bit of effort to save the tooth.
And, in addition to timely consultation, it is
quintessential to bear the cost of RCT and
restore the decaying tooth without further delay
and ignorance than to lose it for saving some
RCT Procedure
During RCT, the pulp area which is damaged is
removed, and then this area is cleaned and
disinfected. Further, it is filled and sealed. As
the term root canal denotes, this treatment
requires cleaning of the canals inside the
tooths root. With new modern technology, it can
be completed in one visit. Yet the steps
typically include
RCT Procedure
  • An X-Ray of the tooth where the RCT is suspected,
    to exactly identify the location of decay.
  • Anesthesia is administered locally on the
    affected tooth.
  • After anesthesia, an opening is made to remove
    the infected tooth pulp. This is technically
    called pulpectomy.
  • Lastly, the opened roots after cleanup are filled
    with appropriate filling material and then sealed
    off with cement as temporary filling.
  • After few weeks of recovery of the wound so
    caused, the dentist will complete the treatment
    by placing a permanent crown on the top of the
    tooth. The type of crown can be chosen as per
    your personal requirement and budget. It may also
    require to place a small supporting post inside
    the root chamber while restoring the crown. This
    solely depends on the condition of the natural

What care you should take while choosing your
RCT is an effective treatment when done
correctly. Yet there are cases where the RCT is
not successful and the pain persists after the
treatment. Such a pain can be difficult to
diagnose. The reason for failed RCT could be
many. Other than the lag as part of the RCT
procedure, it could also be due to gum problems,
sinusitis, TMJ, pain in adjacent tooth, heart
attack etc. A dentist may have full knowledge of
treating your teeth but an endodontist is a
specialist who is specially equipped in saving
the teeth in the worst scenarios. Hence, for the
sake of securing your teeth for your old age, it
is best to get the treatments done by the skilled
and specialized endodontist.
