RCT treatment 1 sitting
Was operated on molar teeth with RCT treatment. RCT treatment got over in 1 sitting and doctor also advised to take size of cap on same day. Is it OK to do so and what's the difference between 1 sitting RCt vs 3-4 sittings?

Single sitting RCT is very common and is generally done where the infection is very less , so nothing to worry. Regarding the crown preparation and the impression its ok to take at the same sitting, because they cannot fix it at the same time as the impression is sent to lab for fabrication where it takes a few days. meanwhile they can provide you with a temporary cap, and keep you on watch, if any pain or infection seems to happens it can be corrected till your cap arrives.

single sitting RCT is very common , we do it when there is less infection...on the other hand doctor has taken impression/measurement of cap....he/she hasn't placed it same day...so, there is no problem in that. You will get time till the crown gets ready.

Rct includes cleaning of nerves, applying medication and sealing of the space formed by cleaning. If there is no infection below the tooth and doctor is confident about the proper cleaning it can be done in single sitting. As far as crown concerned I would prefer to wait for atleast a week. Sothat bone below the tooth heals properly and you have time to see for any mishaps. If any thing goes wrong after placing the cap you may suffer with lose of time.. else all the best. Thanks..

hi, single sitting RCT is very popular these days. thanks to the recent advancements in endodontics. Single sitting is mostly done when there is no long standing periapical infection. Endodontists are specialised for these procedures. 3-4 sittings are done if an infection is to be monitored. it is perfectly ok to take size for cap after rct if there is no symptom of discomfort.

Hello If there's no much of a infection inside we generally do 1 sitting Rct... and take the impression on same day if we have free time.. difference between multiple sitting Rct is that when there's infection we keep a medication inside the pulp canal to reduce infection ..
