How is RCT performed?

The first step is taking an IOPA (X-RAY) of the concerned tooth to determine the cause.

2) After isolation, caries/decay is removed and access is gained to the pulp of tooth by using dental drill. Pulp chamber is cleaned and canals are located.

3) After determining length of canals, they are cleaned using irrigants (e.g. Hypo, Saline) and shaped using various increasing series of files to remove bacteria, debris, pusetc. from canal, which is chief source of pain. If required canals are medicated for few days.

4) Once the canal is clean and acute pain has subsided, canals are filled with root filling (most common is gutta-percha) along with sealer. Crown is filled with filling material and capped for protection. The entire procedure takes 1 to 5 visits (could be more depending upon the case).

5) Sometimes when tooth is grossly decayed a post and core with crown can be done to re-build the tooth and bring it back in function.
