Root Canal Therapy/Treatment First, lets get to know what is Root Canal Therapy (RCT)?
RCT, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure done to treat infected or damaged pulp of the tooth.
Tooth consists of three layers enamel, dentine and pulp.Pulp is the softest tissue that consists of nerves located at the core of the tooth.
So when your decay reaches the pulp, it starts causing you severe sensitivity and pain and if infected can cause a swelling too.
In severe cases the infection sometimes become life threatening as it spreads to other parts of the body .How we go about it?
So, in this procedure under the effect of anesthesia we remove the infected pulp, clean the canals of the root and prepare it for the filling.How many visits are required?

I, Dr Awantika complete the cases in single sitting but depending on the severity of infection and decay it may be completed in one or more visits. Is root canal treatment painful?
No, it is not because the whole treatment is done under local anesthesia, but yes patients might experience some discomfort or mild pain after the treatment for a day or two, which can be managed with pain relief medications.Do I need crown (cap) after RCT?
After RCT, you will never feel sensitivity in the treated tooth because the blood supply of the tooth is removed and your tooth is kind of dead, so with time RCT treated tooth becomes brittle and starts to fracture.
Therefore a crown over your tooth will provide you with the optimum support and will restore the function of the tooth.
