Single Visit vs. Multiple Visit
One of the controversial topics in endodontics is single-visit endodontic treatment in necrotic or retreatment cases. Though studies show one-visit treatment to be recommended for vital cases (e.g. inflamed pulp), there is a lack of predictability when these treatments are performed on necrotic or previously treated cases. There have been multiple approaches developed to improve the success rate of endodontic treatment for necrotic and previously treated canals, but so far, none of those approaches are as predictable or successful as inter-appointment intra-canal dressing placement. Dr. Zoufan chooses to pursue the most predictable approach.
