    Aim: The aim of the study is to compare the efficiency of the commercially available calcium hydroxide preparation with custommade calcium hydroxide used as intercanal medicaments. Background: Calcium hydroxide is an age-old compound widely used as intercanal medicaments due to its antimicrobial activity. The custom-made calcium hydroxide will have additional properties due to the inclusion of different vehicles proven to be adjunct in contributing to its efficacy. Materials and Methods: An in vitro evaluation is done using natural teeth, grouping them into control and sample groups and contaminating it with bacteria followed by dressing the canal with medicaments to evaluate their efficacy. Result: The efficiency of commercially available and custom-made calcium hydroxide intercanal medicaments are found to be different and custom-made calcium hydroxide intercanal medicaments were found to be more effective.
