Single-visit endodontic therapy is a novel concept in clinical practice. However, the controversy still exists as to which root canal treatment option is best between single-and multiple-visit root canal treatment.Ssingle-visit endodontic therapy is now being considered as a good alternative to multiple-visit endodontic treatment. This is due to the introduction of recent advances in the field of endodontics, improved technologies and materials in endodontics, including surgical microscopes, NiTi rotary instrument systems,newer irrigants, more reliable apex locaters, ultrasonics, endosonics and newer obturation systems. The present review article signifies the rationale, basic priniciple of endodontics, indications, contraindications, advantages, disadvantages, guidelines and criteria for evaluation of single-visit endodontic therapy and also emphasises the evidence-based practice for single-visit endodontic therapy in clinics, based on the available current literature on this issue.
