    Single Sitting Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

    Single sitting Root Canal Treatment is a highly advanced dental procedure that requires various latest equipment and an Endodontist (Root canal specialist) for predictable results

    Single sitting root canal treatment is nothing but all the steps of root canal treatment completed in a single visit. It is important to understand that during root canal treatment multiple appointments are given so the medicine applied by the dentist inside the roots can clear the infection and make the tooth painless. This is usually accomplished in 2-3 visits over 7-10 days. But in single visit root canal dentist performs all the steps sequentially in the same visit and it is possible only if the tooth is not heavily infected.

    There is no technology or an expertise that if possessed by some dentist can make single visit root canal possible in all the cases.
