My dentist has advised me to go for a root canal.
He also gave me 2 choices:
1. In one sitting thru some motor (the expensive one)
2. In 3-4 sittings (the traditional one)
If time is not the issue...which 1 should I go for ?
Like the answers? Chat privately with the doctor of your choice
The doctor has given you two options for root canal, both can give you optimal results if done by experienced hands. So the choice is entirely yours. Recent researches shows better results with motorized root canals. Regarding the number of sittings, it does not depend upon whether by manual or motorized rather it depends upon the amount of infection. So the decision of number of sittings leave on your doctor. Hope this solves your doubt.
Go for motorized root canal if money is not an issue.
Leave the decision of number of sittings on dentist.
Please see an endodontist ( root canal treatment specialist) in your area for better outcome of your tooth. Motor driven root canal gives far better prognosis than manual. Think wise and decide for yourself
As a root canal specialist,my advise is if you can afford the Rotary Root canal procedure you should opt for that as it is better for long term prognosis.

I can understand your concern.
Its upto you to decide .
If price is not an issue, then go for one sitting.
If time is not an issue go for the other choice.
The whole decision is yours to take.
There is nothing we can do in it.

In my opinion u should go for the motorised one as with better technology the treatment quality increase.
