Abstract

The main objective of performing root canal therapy is to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal system or remove inflamed pulp tissue and close it with a biologically acceptable filling material. If this treatment well accomplished, regardless of the number of visits, it will create a favorable environment for healing. The recent advances in Endodontic technology attractdental practitioners as well as Endodontists to perform root canal treatment in one visit.One-visit endodontic treatment offers some potential advantages for both clinician and patient. In addition to being faster and very well accepted by patients, it may prevent the risks of root canal system contamination or recontamination between the clinical appointments.However, treatment in one session of necrotic pulps associated with periradicular lesions remains one of the most controversial issues in endodontics.In the presentation, indications and contraindications of single visit root canal treatment for cases with apical periodontitis will be discussed. Furthermore, the appropriate treatment for apical periodontitis will be mentioned.
