Root Canal Treatment processed to restore the functionality and aesthetics of a natural tooth. A root canal processed in either a single sitting or in multiple sittings, depending upon the severity of the infection and the tooth involved. Your dentist will decide whether to carry out the procedure in a single visit or multiple visits. There are various ways to carry out a root canal procedure, which include abscess drainage via root canal therapy.

Usually, root canal therapy for anterior teeth done in single visit. As they don’t have any complex anatomy compared to the posterior teeth. In most cases at Royal Dental Clinics, root canal with fixed teeth restored on the same day.

A good dentist will inform the patient on how they will be inserting the “root canal”, namely filling the residual tooth pulp with suitable material like food and glass for discharging the infection. This procedure is done with two instruments, one is the helical drill and the other is the multi-dimensional instrument.

However, you can expect two or three visits for an endodontic treatment, better known as a root canal. Your first appointment works on fixing the pain you probably have, and that shouldn’t take too long. Once that’s settled, your next appointments will treat the root canal.
