If cavity has not reached up to the pulp, fillings can be done.
§If cavity has reached up to the pulp, ROOT CANAL THERAPY is the only treatment to save the tooth.
§If tooth is not treated in time it will go on breaking .
§Such a tooth can not be saved and needs to be removed since it is infected .
R.C.T. can relieve pain immediately.
§In R.C.T. canal in the root ( where infection is present ) is cleaned and filled to give air tight seal , so that infection should not come back again.
§R.C. treated tooth needs strength since it has become brittle.
§To prevent fracture of the tooth internal and external reinforcement is required.
§Internal reinforcement is done in tooth colour composite resin with bonding technique.
§External reinforcement is a crown.
§Crowns can be metallic , acrylic , ceramic or combination of these .
§Ceramic crowns are the most aesthetic and durable.
