Length of Treatment:
Root canal treatment mostly requires more than one visits, but sometimes it can be completed in a single visit depending on the situation. Some teeth have more roots than other, some teeth have curved root canals that are difficult to find – treating such tooth will require multiple visits. Moreover, teeth with active infections require more than one visits.
After the Treatment
In most cases, after root canal treatment, a crown is essential as soon as possible. Such tooth become brittle and purpose of the crown is to restore the tooth’s strength and protect it from cracking. If the temporary filling is left too long, there are chances that bacteria from your mouth will re-infect the tooth.
The tooth may be sore for two to three days after the treatment. The worse the infection and inflammation you had, the more sensitive the tooth will be after treatment. Avoid chewing on the affected side.
