Once the dental pulp gets injured, it can't repair itself and may die. This process is known as necrosis of pulp and causes the tooth to become non-vital or dead.
A root canal treatment or RCT is a conventional therapy to save a non-vital or inflamed tooth. It is a conservative form of treatment which means that minimal tooth structure is replaced and treated to prevent extraction of the tooth. In this therapy, the inflamed and infected or completely non-vital soft tissue of the tooth, known as the dental pulp, is removed and replaced with inert dental cement.
