ANDRADE MOSQUEDA, Carlos Fidelmar. Use of propolis with calcium hydroxide as an intracanal medicament in asymptomatic apical periodontitis. A case report. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2021, vol.23, n.37, e403.  Epub Apr 30, 2021. ISSN 0797-0374.

Various civilizations have used honey and its products for therapeutic purposes throughout history because of their healing effects. There is a renewed interest in the use of apitherapy as an adjunct in various medical treatments. Propolis stands out for its bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties, among others. This paper aims to describe the case of a lower left first molar diagnosed with pulp necrosis and asymptomatic periapical periodontitis that was managed with a mixture of propolis and calcium hydroxide as an intracanal medicament between appointments. A bone repair process was observed during this period. It is concluded that propolis is a viable alternative as a calcium hydroxide adjuvant when intracanal medication is indicated.

Keywords : propolis; intracanal medicament; root canal treatment; successful; calcium hydroxide.
