SINGLE SITTING ROOT CANAL TREATMENT




What is Single-Sitting RCT Procedure ? 
 
When there is an acute infection with no pus accumalation in & around the tooth, Root canal  
treatment can be completed in a single sitting.
 
The biggest diagnostic aid in this case is an X-ray. Which shows presence or absence of pus 
accumalation in the form of a Periapical Radioluency.
 
X Ray shows Periapical Radioluency. 
    
 The Procedure :-

  
First step is to open the pulp chamber to allow access to the canals.  
Once open, with help of special instruments known as files the infected nerves is removed. The  
 canals are flushed with antiseptic solution.  
The root canals are further cleaned & reshaped to free them of all debris.  
Once the canals are empty dry & clean, they are filled and sealed with biocompatible material  
 known as Gutta Purcha Points / G.P. Points  
The cavity is then filled with temporarily filling material which is then replaced with a permanent  
 filling material like composite filling.
