RCT Conventional

RCT Conventional

RCT or Root Canal Treatment is a dental procedure used to treat and save a severely damaged or inflamed tooth. RCT, also called endodontic surgery is important as it preserves other teeth from infecting the inflamed tooth pulp.

RCT Conventional surgery is a cost-effective treatment that minimizes the need for other costly dental procedures, such as tooth extraction or dental implants. By removing damaged tooth pulp, RCT improves overall oral health.

What is the cost of RCT Conventional surgery?

RTC Conventional surgery costs between 3500-5000 PKR in Pakistan. However, the cost of treatment varies depending on the dental condition.

What diagnosis leads to RCT Conventional surgery?

Following diagnosis may lead to laser filling surgery:

  • Tooth decay

  • Tooth fracture

  • Gum disease

  • Fluorosis

  • Poor oral hygiene

What is the procedure for RCT Conventional surgery?

The procedure for RCT Conventional surgery involves these steps:

  • Before the procedure, the dentist will numb the tooth and the surrounding area with local anesthesia to minimize pain and discomfort during the procedure.

  • Then the dentist will create an opening in the tooth’s top to access the decayed pulp and root canals.

  • Using special dental instruments, he will remove the infected pulp carefully.

  •  Then he will prepare the canals for filling by cleaning and disinfecting the canals.

  • Once canals are cleaned, the dentist will fill them with a dental material called gutta-percha, which seals the canals and prevents bacteria from re-entering.

  • Lastly, your dentist will seal the opening of the canal with a temporary or permanent filling. In some cases, a crown may be used to protect the tooth.

What are the risks & complications associated with RCT Conventional surgery?

RCT Conventional surgery is generally considered safe and effective for repairing damaged teeth. However, like any dental procedure, there are some risks and potential complications to be aware of. These may include:

  • Tooth Sensitivity

  • Fillings that fall out

  • Damage to adjacent teeth

The risks associated with RCT Conventional surgery are relatively low and most patients do not experience any complications.

What to expect after RCT Conventional surgery?

  • After RCT Conventional surgery, you may experience tooth pain and mild discomfort for a few days. The severity and duration of the discomfort depend on the individual case.

  • Immediately after the surgery, patients may also experience swelling, sensitivity, and pain in the treated tooth and surrounding gum tissues. Use over-the-counter painkillers to treat these post-surgery symptoms.

  • The dentist may recommend you eat soft foods and avoid chewing food from the treated tooth until it is healed.
