Root Canals – Treatment, Signs, Procedure, Outcome and More

Conservative Endodontic is a branch of dentistry which deals with diagnosis and treatment of dental problems associated with soft tissues inside the tooth.
Root canal refers to the natural cavity within the center of the tooth.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a procedure to repair or save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The goal of this procedure is to save the tooth from pulpal necrosis (disease of pulp). RCT is done both in kids and adults in order to save their tooth from decaying; it stabilizes the tooth and gives it a new life.
Not all tooth decay requires RCT; only if the infection (decay) is too deep your dentist may recommend you this treatment option.

Most recent studies identified that Autism is caused by combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental triggers. Autism can be identified as early as 18 months of age. By monitoring the child’s developmental pattern in the early years will help in identifying the disorder at the earliest. Early intervention plays a key role in treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
