Root canal treatment is for individual tooth. Not for whole mouth. When decay is involving the pulp of a tooth then the procedure of choice is toot canal treatment

Root canal treatment has to be done in teeth which is problemetic by means of symptoms and also some times without symptoms but cause should be there. Some time whole mouth required root canal treatment in full mouth rehab cases though there is no problem in teeth.
