Intracanal medication is adjunct to cleaning and shaping in reducing postoperative pain and tenderness in symptomatic teeth. The present clinical study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Ledermix paste as intracanal medicament in symptomatic teeth using the eugenol as control. Access cavity was prepared for 30 symptomatic teeth,Intracanal medicament was placed. Incidence of post access pain and tenderness were evaluated. Ledermix showed faster action than eugenol in reducing symptoms i.e.within 72 hrs. Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  1. Intracanal medicament is very important to control the infection and symptoms even after the root canal therapy for better prognosis
  2. With good longacting intracanal medication ,prognosis of post-endo restoration will be better and it helps in clinical success of the cases.
