What is RCT?

Endodontic treatment is often referred to as root canal treatment or RCT. This is a procedure designed to save your own tooth despite the pulp being irreversibly damaged.

Under local anaesthetic, the diseased parts of the tooth are removed, and the remaining tooth structure to the root tip are cleaned and disinfected.  The procedure is usually completed over a couple of appointments, with a temporary filling material used in between visits.

Once the root canal has been filled, the tooth is ready for the final restoration.  A filling is used at this stage, however for back teeth we recommend the fitting of an artificial crown.
