ABSTRACT
A root canal is the naturally occurring space within a tooth that consists of the pulp chamber, the main canal(s) and the more intricate anatomical branches that may connect it to each other or to the surface of the root. This article throws light on the recent advancement in root canal treatment using various therapies like endodontic, non surgical and surgical therapies. Root canal treatment not only corrects the damaged tooth but also restores the esthetics, phonetics and function of the tooth. Proper treatment should be done to avoid any complications and to make tooth appear more natural. Patents are the richest source of the latest technological information. A review of some patents on root canal treatment of tooth diseases is provided that summarizes the recent technical advancements taken place in this area.
