My molar tooth has a deep cavity. It has no pain, but the doctor said the infection is too deep, reaching the bone area. He told me about the RCT process of four sittings. I want to ask, should I go for RCT or tooth extraction in this condition? What should I do if the infection is too deep, but I have no problems like pain and swelling?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
As your dentist said, the cavity is too deep; one thing is a normal filling cannot be done since a deep cavity has to be cleaned, and then a filling has to be done; in that case, there are chances that the pulp chamber may get exposed then you may have pain. There are deep cavities that may be asymptomatic, which is without any pain but in which normal filling cannot be done, so to save your tooth, you may need a root canal treatment (RCT). Only when it is grossly damaged and cannot be restored will you be advised extraction. It is better if you go ahead with RCT. Otherwise, if you leave it for long, it will go for extraction.
