Condition(s) targeted: Periapical Diseases

Intervention: Metronidazole-Ciprofloxacin gatifloxacin-Clindamycin paste (Drug); creosote (Drug)

The triple antibiotic paste is widely used in young permanent teeth and permanent teeth root canal therapy with excellent antiantimicrobial effect. We hypothesize that its application in the treatment of periapical periodontitis of deciduous teeth is superior to other drugs currently in use as creosote.

Clinical Details

Official title: Randomized Controlled Research of the Application of Triple Antibiotic Paste in Primary Teeth With

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Evidence of lesion healing confirmed by cone beam computed tomography and X-rays

Detailed description: We design to collect a group of patients presenting primary teeth with periapical periodontitis in certain criterion. We will divide the patients into two groups randomly. One group will get treated with triple antibiotic paste while the other with creosote. We want to evaluate the short-term and long-term effects of the two groups to get a conclusion of the clinical value of triple antibiotic paste.
