OMC (Open-Medicate-Close)

OMC is open-medicate-close

When the nerve tissue in a permanent tooth is infected or non-vital due to trauma, a root canal must be performed to remove the source of the infection and save the tooth.

During this procedure the dentist cuts an access into the pulp, removes as much as possible, places medication to kill bacteria, and then places a temporary filling.
