The antibacterial effect of calcium hydroxide paste in distilled water as an intra-canal medicament was studied in twelve cases. It was found that 54.5% of the cases became asymptomatic and sterile in 4 visits, 27.2% in 7 visits, while 18.20% were failures. It is concluded that calcium hydroxide can be successfully used as an intra-canal medicament in highly infected canals.
