L'antibiothérapie locale en endodontie : est-elle toujours d'actualité ?

Abstract : Endodontic therapy consists of a chemo-mechanical preparation of the root canal system, to which we can add a temporary medication. Among the antimicrobial agents conventionally employed, it includes sodium hypochlorite, chlorhexidine, or calcium hydroxide. However, each has limitations to its effectiveness. The alternative antibiotic therapy is then considered. First systemic, but this is without considering that the contribution of the drug on the infected site is prevented by pulp necrosis. And local, by placing the drug in situ. Such products have been used in the treatment of pulp necrosis and periapical complications of the mature tooth. Also in the treatment of traumatized and avulsed teeth. Lately, the pulp regeneration of immature permanent tooth has opened a new course of study and reflection. Current guidelines recommend the use of a triple antibiotic paste. The risks associated with their use are well-known. It is therefore to assess their profits on classically recommended agents, to better assess their future during endodontic treatment.
