Popularly, Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is known to the patients as “One treatment for all ailments” for decayed teeth. Dental decay progress can be restricted very effectively and with a greater predictability if treated in its early stages. Fortunately, RCT has now been refined over a period of years to a very highly sophisticated and predictable choice of treatment with a very high success rate.

RCT is performed in either single or multiple visits, in three to four steps depending on the condition of the tooth and after assessment of the damage occurred.

A crown is one of the most popular ways of securing a badly carious tooth or a tooth after a RCT. It distributes the load over the entire surface of the tooth, thus preventing fracture of the tooth to a great extent.
