What is the Procedure for RCT?
In RCT, a dentist would numb your tooth before he/she cleans the tooth and rid it of any decay. After cleaning, access is gained into the center of the tooth (pulp chamber and canals) and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected using fine instruments and solutions.
Once this is done, the canals of your tooth are filled and sealed with gutta percha and a filling is placed into the chamber and other cleaned part of the tooth. This procedure ensures that the infection inside your tooth’s pulp chamber and canals is eliminated and does not re-enter this space.
