Abstract

Aim of the study: The incidence of post-operabve pain was compared following single-visit canal treatment in single- and multi-rooted teeth, with and without per|apical radiolucency. The article also reviews the issues of post- operabve pain and healing , following single-visit and mum-visit endodontfc therapy. Single-visit endodonbc therapy (SVE) was performed in SO single-rooted teeth and 60 multiple-rooted teeth Materials and Method: Single-visit endodonffc therapy (SVE) was performed in SO single-rooted teeth and 60 multiple-rooted teeth. The subjeds were divided as follows: Group I -Single-rooted teeth with per|apical radiolucency (n=2S); Group II-Single-rooted teeth without per|apical radiolucency (n=2S); Group III--Multiple-rooted teeth with per|apical radiolucency (n=30); and Group IV-Multiple-rooted teeth without per|apical radiolucency (n=30). Assessment of postoperative pain was done at 24hrs, 3 days and 1 week using a self report questionnaire. The data was analyzed using non-parametric Kruskal -Wallis test. Results: No stab`stically significant difference was observed in postoperative pain following SVE between the single-rooted and multiple-rooted teeth groups at 24hrs, 3 days and 1 week. The presence or absence of per|apical radiolucency had no signi6cant influence on the incidence of reported post-operative pain following SVE. Conclusion: There was no difference in incidence of pain in single rooted teeth and multi-rooted teeth with and without per,apical radiolucencies following SVE. Thus, incidence of post-operative pain does not seem to be a valid comparison criterion between single- and multiple-visit endodontfc therapies. Also, the literature suggests similar success rates with single-visit and multiple-visit roof canal treatment.
