Root Canal Therapy
Endodontic therapy (Also known as Root Canal Therapy) is a sequence of treatment for the pulp (nerve) of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the tooth from future bacterial & microbial invasion. It is a procedure where the nerve of the tooth is removed and the canal space is cleaned out. When the procedure is completed, the tooth is considered “dead” and a filling material is placed in the canal space. When a RCT is done, a full coverage crown is necessary to complete treatment of the tooth so it will remain functional for many years.
