Thanks for the query It's always Good to savre the tooth than get it extracted. Root canal treatment is the one the basic and routine treatment which helps in saving the tooth for longer or sometime for life. My advice is Better go for RCT and crown than extraction and now a days RCT is done with latest equipment such as endomotor ansd Apex locator which further aids in longevity of the tooth.

Dear Lybrate user, root canal treatment can be done in single sitting also, depending if the tooth is indicated for single sitting RCT.

Hi. Brush twice daily. Visit dentist for teeth cleaning once a year. Avoid airated drinks and sweets at night. Rinse with warm water and salt everyday at night. Keep a habit of flossing Regards.

Your dentist only will guide you better at this moment, because we don't have any information about the condition of your tooth. Follow his instructions or you want to take second opinion then you must visit dental clinic now.

Root canal is the procedure to remove the soft part of tooth (pulp), cleaning and shaping that space and filling it. Later the damaged crown part of tooth can be restored by capping.

Borderline case a filling would suffice ... A case where cavity is on the nerves ... A root canal treatment is advised you can check with a filling first if it doesn't help kindly get root canal treatment done
