Root Canal Treatement (RCT) is also known as Endodontic Therapy, Endodontic Treatment, or Root Canal Therapy.
Root canal treatment is an instant pain reliever and the best treatment to retain the natural teeth mechanism. It is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.
The pulp is the soft area in the center of the tooth. The root canal travels from the root of the tooth to the pulp chamber containing connective tissues and blood vessels that nourish the teeth.
The procedure is often complicated, depending on circumstances, and may involve multiple visits over a period of weeks.
Advantages of Root Canal Treatment:
There are many clinical reasons for needing root canal treatment, but there are also countless practical reasons why saving the natural tooth is a wise choice. Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.

Alternative to Root Canal Treatment:
The alternatives to root canal therapy include no treatment or tooth extraction. Following tooth extraction, options for prosthetic replacement may include dental implants, a fixed partial denture (bridge), or a removable denture. There are risks to forgoing treatment, including pain, infection and the possibility of worsening dental infection such that the tooth will become irreparable.
