Root canal

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 ?

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.
Next Steps
Go for motorized root canal if money is not an issue.
Health Tips
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

Hi make sure whether root canal is really required , if required than go for the rotary one..it can be done in one or probably 2 sittings depending on the tooth condition.
But go for rotary one.
