Root Canal Treatment
A badly infected, painful tooth, or one that has significant decay, was doomed to be extracted. Today, a majority of these teeth can be saved by a simple, special dental procedure called Root Canal Treatment (RCT).
If the tooth decays and is not attended to in time the decay spreads deeper into the pulpal tissues (innermost part of the tooth) and causes pain. At this stage pain can be immediately relieved and the tooth can be saved by RCT.Root Canal Treatment is the removal of the infected pulpal tissues and filling the root canals with adequate root filling material

What is root canal treatment?
In simple terms, root canal treatment is the removal of the infected soft tissue within the tooth and its replacement by an artificial inert 'Filling' material. This procedure basically saves the tooth and eliminates dental pain Root canal treatment can be done in one or more visits. It depends on the situation. An uncomplicated root canal treatment often can be completed in one visit. Some teeth may be more difficult to treat because of where they are in the mouth. Some teeth have more roots than other teeth. Treating a tooth with many roots takes longer. Some teeth have curved root canals that are difficult to treat. If you have an infection, you will have to visit the dentist several times so that he or she can make sure that the infection is gone.

Tooth damaged by trauma
A fractured tooth
Deep cavity that has infected the nerve
The end result is the same-an infection that leads to an abscess at the base of the tooth.

Signs and symptoms
Throbbing pain in the tooth (especially lying horizontally, i.e. in bed at night)
There may be swelling in the jaw
The tooth may be painful while chewing.
Pain on consuming hot and cold foods
Teeth that are severely worn out
Your tooth can usually be saved at this time. Your dentist can save such tooth by removing the diseased nerve tissue, cleaning and then filling the canals of the tooth. The treated tooth usually can function like a normal tooth. If left untreated the infection may even spread to your bone(abscess) and the tooth may fall outyu. Pain usually increases and one is forced to seek emergency dental treatment. Now extraction is truly the last resort. Though an extraction is cheaper ,an implant or a bridge to replace the tooth can be more expensive than root canal therapy. If you have a choice, it is always advisable to keep your original teeth. Save your teeth, it is valuable !!

What happens after the treatment?
After the inside of the tooth has been treated, the outside will be filled or build up with post & core and then restored with a crown(cap) to protect your tooth's underlying structures and teeth functions and feel like your other teeth. The purpose of the crown is to prevent the tooth from fracture in future. Because infected and treated tooth becomes more brittle

Root canal treatment in children:
The painful milk teeth can also be saved with RCT. Milk teeth can not be removed before time because they maintain space for the erupting permanent teeth and also help in jaw growth.
