Who does not like sweets? We all love birthdays and festivals because we love to eat delectable cakes and sweets. During Indian festivals and moments of happiness, we are used to hearing the phrase "Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye", which translates to "let us eat something sweet to celebrate". These sticky sweets can stay on the teeth, and if the teeth are not cleaned properly while brushing it can give rise to decaying of teeth.
There are a number of bacteria in our mouth. These bacteria love to feast on the sugar-containing food particles in our mouth and produce acid. This leads to the dissolution of calcium which then builds up the structure of the teeth.
Our main aim should be the prevention of this decay by eating less sugar-containing food and brushing well. However, sometimes despite all the prevention and care we still end up with cavities (decayed teeth). The decay slowly progresses towards the center of the tooth (this may take a few months). The center of the tooth is called pulp and contains nerves and blood vessels. As soon as the decay comes close to this pulp, the tooth starts to pain, and it becomes difficult to eat.

If such a thing happens the only way to relieve the pain and save the tooth is to perform a Root Canal Treatment (RCT) on that tooth. The pulp of the tooth is present in the center and in the channels along the length of the root. RCT involves cleaning of the pulp tissue with the help of special instruments and filling up space with an inert, non-reactive material called Gutta Percha.
