In the present study, teeth with radiographic evidence of apical radiolucency were included and therefore, all of them were valid candidates to receive an intracanal medication. Our study revealed that the number of teeth with post operative pain was higher when patients were not given any intracanal medication and it was reduced considerably with the administration of a medication.
Ballal et al in their study proved that 2% chlorhexidine gel may be a more effective intracanal medicament than calcium hydroxide paste or their combination against Candida albicans and Enterococcus faecalis.18 Therefore, chlorhexidine proved to be the most effective intracanal medication in relieving post operative pain in patients in our study, whereas in control group where patients were given no medication, the incidence of pain was highest.
This can be reduced by using chlorhexidine as an intracanal medication as demonstrated in our study.
Based on the results, it was possible to conclude that the postoperative pain occurring during root canal treatment could not be completely eliminated by any intracanal medication used in this study.
