Root Canal Treatment
A patient needs a root canal treatment when he has a toothache and infection gets into the central part of the tooth where the blood vessels and nerves are.
The tooth is then opened up, the abscess and pus cleaned out from the inside. The tooth is then filled and this process is called a root canal treatment (RCT).
Radiograph X-Rays will be needed before , during and after the treatment . Sometimes the canals are very narrow and curved. These teeth can only be cleaned adequately using a surgical microscope where the whole tooth is magnified.
The dentist will even show you on the TV the cracks, fractures and the canals properly.Usually for the back teeth a crown is needed after a root canal treatment.
