Endodontic treatment or Root Canal Therapy (RCT) treats inside the tooth.
Root Canal Therapy is a procedure that is done when bacteria has invaded the pulp and is caused by decay, cavities and/or trauma.
Symptoms that may indicate that you need RCT are:
- Tooth pain that keeps you up at night
- Lingering pain when you drink something hot or cold
- Pain when you put pressure or chew on the tooth.
