Why is my root canal being done in two visits?

Just had a root canal this morning, but have to go back next week to finish it. Why didn't they do it all at once?

From what I understand, they went in and removed the nerve and filed the canals a bit. Then they filled it in with a temporary filling until I can come back next week to have the canals filled up.
If you're already in there with everything opened up, why not finish everything up while you're there?
