Do not obturate unless you have a dry Canal
a swollen necrotic upper first molar case with a chronic periapical abscess came to our clinic suffering from moderate persistent etching pain and pain on mastication .
the swelling started to come and go 6 month ago and the patient was on antibiotic medication , but this time it didn’t go .
2nd visit intracanal medicament “CaoH” paste was placed in canals .
on 3rd visit after 10 days i noticed bad odor and we couldn’t get a dry canal using paper point so another dressing of intracanal medicament was placed .
on 4th visit (14 days later ) the bad odor disappeared and we could manage to get dry canals , so obturation was carried out , on recall visit the patient was asymptomatic and every thing was going fine without any periodontal manifestation .
