The recent editorial by Dr Larz Spångberg on evidence-based endodontics was read with interest.
1In attempting to further push the debate on 1- versus 2-visit therapy, it was pleaded that “leaders and educators should be the first to come forward and declare where they stand on these issues, and whether they support quality care in an evidence-based practice environment.” On the surface, the statement implies that those advocating 1-visit treatment support less than quality care. Was this the intent of the editorial, or was it an attempt to spur practitioners on to a more scientific rationale for treatment rendered? If the evidence is there, then one would be remiss to ignore it.
