Abstract

Background

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the most suitable intracanal medicament with the least incidence on Interappointment flare-up.

Aim

To clinically evaluate and compare the effect of combination of calcium hydroxide (CH) and chlorhexidine (CHX) with triple antibiotic paste and combination of CH, CHX, and lycopene on interappointment flare-up.

Materials and methods

A total of 36 patients requiring root canal treatment were selected according to the selection criteria and divided into three groups: Group I – CH and CHX, group II – triple antibiotic paste, and group III – CH, CHX, and lycopene. Access opening and biomechanical preparation of all samples, and intracanal medicaments were placed respectively. Subsequently, interappointment flare-up was assessed at 1, 2, 3, 7, and 14 days using verbal rating scale.

Statistical analysis used

One way analysis of variance test and Tukey's post hoc test.

Results

There was no statistically significant difference seen in the clinical performance of CH + CHX, triple antibiotic paste, and mixture of CH + CHX + lycopene at the end of 14 days in terms of interappointment flare-up.

Conclusion

All the intracanal medicaments were effective in reducing interappointment flare-up at the end of 14 days.
