Medication Summary

Systemic medications are not recommended for the management of this lesion. Antibiotics are not prescribed for the treatment of the pulp polyp, despite a bacterial component. However, an antibiotic paste mixture is used within the canals of the infected tooth when the revascularization process is performed for the treatment of the nonvital tooth.
