Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic factors of periapical healing of teeth after single-visit nonsurgical endodontic treatment under general anesthesia in special needs patients. Methods: This retrospective study collected 448 teeth from 241 patients (mean age = 27.4 years, standard deviation = 13.9 years). A total of 271 teeth (60.5%) with clinical and radiographic follow-up records longer than 12 months (mean [standard deviation] = 56.1 [27.9]) were included in the outcome analysis. Demographic, systemic, and dental information about the cases were compared between the healed and nonhealed groups using the Pearson chi-square test. Factors contributing to periapical healing were determined with multivariate logistic regression analysis. Results: Complete periapical healing without clinical signs was observed in 221 teeth (81.5%), uncertain healing with decreased size of the periapical lesion was shown in 43 teeth (15.9%), and no reduction in lesion size was observed in 7 cases (2.6%). In the multivariate analysis, diet type, oral hygiene maintenance, pulp vitality, and root filling length were detected as contributing factors for complete resolution of periapical lesions (P <.05). Conclusions: Successful outcomes of single-visit endodontic treatment under general anesthesia were shown in special needs patients. The prognoses were influenced by the clinical circumstances of the patients and the preoperative conditions of their teeth.
