What is a single-sitting root canal?

When a root canal treatment is done in one sitting, it is referred to as a single-sitting root canal. At Royal Dental Clinics, root canal therapy is now more quickly completed because of advancements in dental technology and techniques, which once might have required several appointments. Our dentist extracts the diseased or damaged tooth pulp, forms and cleans the root canal, and then fills and seals the canal in a single session. This approach minimizes the patient’s suffering and irritation while also saving time and avoiding the need for multiple visits. It’s a practical and efficient choice for people who want to take care of their dental problems right away.

What are the benefits of a single-sitting root canal?

  • Pain and suffering are quickly relieved for patients as soon as the illness or damage is treated.

How is a single-sitting root canal performed?

Our skilled dentist, Dr. Chirag Chamria, and his committed staff at Royal Dental Clinics can effectively complete a root canal in one sitting. The first step of the process is assessing the amount of infection or damage using diagnostic instruments and X-rays. In order to guarantee the patient’s comfort, a local anesthetic is given. The infected pulp is then extracted using advanced instruments after Dr. Chamria makes a tiny incision in the tooth to reach it.

The root canals are meticulously sculpted, cleansed, and disinfected. To seal and stop further infections, the cleansed canals are filled with gutta-percha, a biocompatible substance. A temporary or permanent filler is then used to seal the access aperture. A crown may occasionally be applied to a tooth in order to strengthen and improve its function. Dr. Chamria and his staff put the comfort of the patient first throughout the whole process, resulting in a seamless and effective outcome.

What can I expect during and after a single-sitting root canal?

At Royal Dental Clinics, a single-sitting root canal should be simple and comfortable. To ensure you are pain-free, Dr. Chirag Chamria and his colleagues will first numb the area using local anesthesia. They will keep you informed and at ease during the entire process. A small incision is made in the tooth, the diseased pulp is removed, the root canals are cleaned and shaped, and finally the root canals are sealed with a biocompatible substance. Usually taking between 60 and 90 minutes, the full process is finished in a single visit.

It’s common to feel a little sensitive or uncomfortable after the surgery; this can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. To guarantee a speedy recovery, Dr. Chamria will provide comprehensive aftercare recommendations. Until the treated tooth is totally fixed with a crown, if necessary, you should refrain from chewing on it. It may be necessary to schedule follow-up appointments to assess your progress and finish the repair. The majority of patients experience minimal disturbance to their daily routines following a single-session root canal, allowing them to resume their regular activities the following day.

How long does it take to recover from a single-sitting root canal?

After a single-situation root canal, recovery usually takes several days. You can treat mild discomfort or sensitivity with over-the-counter pain medications. The majority of patients are able to resume their regular activities the following day, however, it’s best to wait to chew on the treated tooth until it has totally healed.

What are the risks and complications of a single-sitting root canal?

  • If not every germ is eliminated during the process, there is a small risk of infection.
  • If a crown is not properly placed over the treated tooth, it may become more brittle and prone to breaking.
  • Continued discomfort or sensitivity may be experienced by certain individuals, necessitating additional care.
  • Rarely, if the canals are not completely cleaned, problems could keep coming up.
  • An allergic reaction to the filling’s ingredients is possible in certain patients, although it is uncommon.

How much does a single-sitting root canal cost?

Depending on the materials and case complexity, a single-sitting root canal at our clinic can cost different amounts. You should budget between ₹5,000 and ₹15,000 on average. To get an exact quotation depending on your unique requirements, it is best to speak with the clinic.

Is a single-sitting root canal covered by insurance?

What are the alternatives to a single-sitting root canal?

  • The traditional root canal process takes several visits to finish. On the initial visit, the infected pulp is removed; on future visits, the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
  • Retreatment could be required if a tooth that has already had treatment develops a new or recurring infection. It entails prying out the previous filling, cleaning the canal, reopening the tooth, and sealing it once more.
  • If a standard or retreatment root canal fails, an apicoectomy is a surgical operation in which the contaminated tissue and tip of the tooth’s root are removed.
  • In certain situations, extraction might be the only practical choice if the tooth is extensively infected or has significant damage. Dentures, bridges, and implant-based tooth replacements typically come next.


Finally, a single-session root canal provides a quick, easy, and effective way to take care of dental problems. The significance of this cutting-edge surgery in relieving pain and protecting natural teeth is emphasized by Dr. Chirag Chamria. With the right knowledge and skills, patients can recover more quickly and with less suffering. To find the best course of action for achieving the highest level of oral health and well-being, it is imperative to speak with a skilled dentist like Dr. Chirag Chamria.
