Root Canal Treatment is the process of removing the nerve tissue from inside the tooth and replacing it with a filling material. This procedure is performed when the nerve tissue has abscessed and/or atrophied. Patients are usually put on a course on antibiotics prior to RCT to ensure infection has subsided. Once a tooth has had a RCT it will become brittle because the blood supply has gone which was once giving the tooth its essential nutrients. Putting a crown on the tooth after RCT will help stop the tooth from fracturing.
At Aesthetic Dental center LLC RCT is performed with the latest equipment – Electronic apex locator Root ZX, Rotary files and single cone Endorez fillings- so that most treatment is completed painlessly in a single visit.
