Calcium hydroxide has been used for a variety of purposes since its introduction into dentistry in the early parts of twentieth century. This study evaluated the root canal therapy using calcium hydroxide as a root canal dressing in anterior and posterior teeth. Teeth with acute pulpitis were selected. They were prepared and a dressing of calcium hydroxide mixed with saline was given for a week. 28 teeth could be obturated in 2nd appointment while 2 were obturated in the 3rd appointment. The results, although not statistically significant, showed that incidence of pain was less in anterior teeth as compared to posteriors. This could be attributed to the complex canal morphology in posterior teeth.
