The current philosophy in the management of periapical lesions includes the initial use of nonsurgical methods. The surgical approach can be adopted for cases refractory to nonsurgical treatment, in obstructed or nonnegotiable canals and for cases where long term monitoring of periapical lesions is not possible. Many antibiotic combinations were used as intracanal medicament. Here report two cases managed uneventfully by using a newer drug combination. Clinically and radio graphically healing was reported within 3 months short duration. This combination was tried not only in cases with apical pathology but also cases with severe pain even after proper shaping and cleaning. It alleviates inflammatory pain and makes the patients asymptomatic and comfortable.
