Root canal therapy (RCT) is performed on a tooth that is:
1) abscessed (draining infection or swollen)
2) acutely painful
3) the decay has reached the nerve chamber
4) the tooth is broken and needs a post placed to be able to fix it
During RCT the nerve is removed from the roots of the tooth. The tooth is then disinfected and filled with a thermoplastic material called Guttapercha.
After RCT is performed the tooth will need to be re-built and crowned.
