Abstract
A mixture of metronidazole, ciprofloxacin and minocycline(3Mix) in distilled water or in a root canal sealer were used to disinfect the infected endodontic and periapical lesions. It has been well acknowledged in recent literature that minocycline, a semisynthetic tetracycline derivative, causes discolorations in adult teeth and various other collagenous tissues. In these cases, pulp treatments were finished successfully using a combination of antibiotics but severe discolorations of the teeth were observed. Discolored non-vital posterior tooth was treated using the prosthodontic procedure. And anterior tooth was successfully treated using the walking bleach technique. Bleaching was performed by temporarily placing a mixture of sodium perborate and distilled water into the pulp chamber. There were significant esthetic improvement.
