Objective: To compare post obturation flare-ups with and without using calcium hydroxide as intracanal dressing

Study design: A cross sectional comparative study

Place and duration: Department of Operative Dentistry, Liaquat University Hospital/Civil Hospital Hyderabad from 1[st] January 2007 to 30[th] June 2007

Methodology: A total of sixty adult patients of either male or female were included in this study. Permanent teeth diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis were included in this study. The teeth were randomly assigned into 2 groups; one group root canal treatment was done and calcium hydroxide was used an intracanal medicament and the other group was treated without calcium hydroxide. The flare-ups were observed in the cases with a visual analogue scale and frequency of pain was reported depending upon the frequency of pain, i.e. no pain, mild, moderate or severe pain. The data was collected and a social science [SPSS 20] was used to analyze data

Results: The results of the present study have shown that endodontic treatment with intracanal medicament has similar results to endodontic treatment without intracanal medicament. No significant difference in frequency of pain was observed between both group at any of the 24 hours and 72 hours postobturation time period

Conclusion: Under the conditions of this study, no significant difference in postobturation flare ups was observed between the two groups at any time period. The application of calcium hydroxide as an intracanal medication was unrelated to the incidence and/or severity of postobturation flare ups
