Objective: At present, the literature presents many controversies when correlating the incidence of flare-ups with the approach to endodontic treatment in a single session and multiple sessions. Methods: The aim of this study was to make a comparative evaluation of the incidence of flare-ups in 117 patients submitted to endodontic treatment in a single session and in multiple sessions. Results: The results presented by patients that are attended in a single session showed no statistically significant differences from those who were attended in multiple sessions. Conclusion: According to this study, it was concluded that the number of interventions necessary to conclude endodontic therapy has no correlation with the incidence of flare-ups.
