Forty five mandibular molars were root canal treated in single visit therapy comparing three different sealers viz. Apexit (vivadent), lodoform & Resorcinol (resinifying therapy). All the treated teeth were examined clinically & radiologically after 6 weeks. 12 weeks. 6 months & 12 months period of observation. Clinically all the treated teeth were successful except one fare up in group B. Radiologically the mean decrease in radiolucency with apexit (group A) after 12 months was 0.56: with lodoform (group B) 1.12 & with resorcinol (group C) 1.08 & the percentage decrease was 93.26, 85.92 & 86.76 respectively. There was no statistical difference in all the three groups: however, apexit was marginally better. The post operative complications were minimum with all the sealers. Single visit root canal therapy can be recommended as treatment modality in today's fast world, as it definitely saves time.
