Single Sitting Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

Restore decayed or damaged teeth

Single Sitting Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is a modern dental procedure that has revolutionized the way infected or damaged teeth are treated. Traditionally, root canal treatment required multiple visits to the dentist, with each visit involving cleaning, shaping, and filling the tooth. However, with advancements in dental technology and techniques, it is now possible to complete the entire root canal treatment in a single sitting, providing convenience, efficiency, and immediate relief to patients.

Root canal treatment becomes necessary when the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, cracked or broken teeth, or trauma. If left untreated, this infection can spread to the surrounding tissues and lead to severe pain, swelling, and even tooth loss. Root canal treatment involves the removal of the infected pulp, disinfection of the root canals, and filling them with a biocompatible material to seal the tooth and prevent further infection.

In the past, root canal treatment was typically completed over several visits. Each visit involved different stages of the procedure, including cleaning the root canals, shaping them to remove infected tissue, and placing temporary fillings between visits. This approach required multiple appointments, resulting in inconvenience for patients, longer treatment times, and increased chances of reinfection between visits.
