Abstract

Endodontic therapy aims at infection control and management to provide a healthy environment to the tooth and the oral cavity. With the daily advances in endodontic procedures it is possible to control these infections clinically. But there are certain situations which require the need of a pharmacological intervention as an adjunct. In such cases antibiotics have proved to be a boon. Due to untoward use and mis guidance antibiotics are prescribed in an imprudent way. Therefore this paper throws a light on various conditions in endodontics that require antibiotic application and commonly used antibiotics that are prescribed to treat these conditions.

Keywords: Antibiotics, Antibiotic prophylaxis, Endodontic infections, Resistance.
