Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is alternative treatment option when the nerve or pulp of the tooth is compromised either by infection, trauma or decay.
Generally, if a tooth pulp is inflamed your options are either an extraction or root canal treatment.
There can be numerous symptoms that a tooth requires a root canal treatment that range from a large cavity, pain or swelling and severe sensitivity to hot and cold.
This treatment is completed by removing the infected tissue from the tooth and placing a special material inside the tooth in order to seal the canals. Many people believe that Root Canal Treatment is painful, but the procedure is actually similar to having a filling done.
