Calcium hydroxide is a multipurpose agent, and there have been an increasing Some of its indications include inter-appointment intracanal medicaments. role of calcium hydroxide in the field of endodontics, focusing on its droxide can be used effectively as intracanal medicament, root canal. Calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) has been widely used as an intracanal medicament for endodontic retreatment, but very few studies used both Ca(OH)2 and 1%.
