Q: In patients needing root canal treatment (P), is single-visit treatment (I) significantly more effective than multiple-visit treatment (C) with regard to risk of long-term failure (O)? •to compare both treatments with regard to risk of short- term postoperative pain as well as the risk of flare-up.  Materials/Methods:  •Electronic search in multiple libraries, N = […]

Purpose: To determine whether completion of root canal treatment in a single visit or over two or more visits, with or without medication, makes any difference in term of effectiveness or complications. Materials/Methods: •Electronic search in multiple libraries •N = 25 SRs (3780 patients) •Risk of bias assessed, type of primary studies, overall analysis Most […]

Summary:  •Purpose: to compare the healing rate and post-obturation pain of single- versus multiple-visit root canal treatment for teeth with infected root canals. •N=10 (RCTs or quasi-RCTs). Methods/Materials: The inclusion criteria: Mature teeth undergoing endodontic treatment presented with infected root canals or radiographic evidence of apical periodontitis. The outcome measures were in terms of the […]

Summary:  •PICO: Does single-visit root canal treatment without calcium hydroxide dressing, compared to multiple-visit treatment with calcium hydroxide dressing for 1 week or more, result in a lower healing (success) rate (as measured by clinical and radiographic interpretation)? •N= 3 RCT Methods/Materials:. •Included studies were randomized controlled clinical trials comparing healing rate of single- and […]

Summary: Purpose:  to review the existing literature regarding the biological aspects of endodontics that must be evaluated when performing one- appointment endodontic therapy for asymptomatic teeth with apical periodontitis. Biological considerations: •Satisfactory root canal disinfection in one visit is necessary as intracanal medication cannot be used. The clinician relies on: 1.Adequate working length control, 2.Mechanical […]

Summary: •Purpose:  to compare radiographic evidence of periapical healing after root canal therapy completed in one visit versus two visits with an interim calcium hydroxide/chlorhexidine paste dressing. •n: 97 patients. Sixty-three patients were examined at the 12- month follow-up, 33 in group 1 and 30 group 2 •Materials/Methods: Primary inclusion criteria were RG evidence of […]

Summary: •Purpose: to record the 2-year clinical and radiographic outcome of one- and two visit endodontic treatment and study the significance of the bacteriologic sampling results on the outcome. •n: 94 patients with asymptomatic teeth with necrotic pulps and apical periodontitis •Materials/Methods: Patients were randomly assigned to one- or two-visit treatment. Two randomization factors were […]

Summary:  Purpose:  to analyze the in vivo  microbial status of the middle and apical segments of the root canal system of mesial roots of human mandibular molars with primary apical periodontitis after 1- or 2-visit endodontic treatment. n: 13 teeth (cases). Inclusion:  mesial canals of mandibular molars with necrotic pulps and radiographic evidence of apical […]
