Hi, to cut the story short, my scheduled root canal appointment is this Friday. Because there are two teeth that need to be root canal treated (and an extraction of a third tooth, a re-filling of a fourth tooth), is it possible, or a good idea, to have the two root canals done at once, to save time? The two teeth are one of each side at the back. I've heard it's not a good idea to numb both sides of the mouth, but surely if I don't eat or drink for the next five hours the effect would have worn off? Or are there other concerns?
