Background: The antimicrobial property of calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] is broadly utilized. It has the capability to dissolve organic tissues as well as to inactivate bacterial endotoxins. The goal of this trial is to compare the capability of three different Ca(OH)2-containing herbal pastes with diffuse ions via dentinal tubules, as well as the Ca(OH)2 paste in addition to saline. Materials and Methods: In this trial, 60 single-rooted premolar teeth were utilized. The root canals were prepared after the tooth crowns were removed. Four groups were produced based on the channel to be utilized for formulating calcium hydroxide pastes: Ca(OH)2 saline paste (control group), Ca(OH)2 neem, Ca(OH)2 aloe vera, and Ca(OH)2 turmeric paste (groups II, III, and IV). Calcium hydroxide herbal paste dressings were employed after biomechanical preparation followed by sealing with resin-based cement. The teeth were positioned in containers filled with distilled water, and the pH of the water was recorded at 3-, 24-, and 168-h intervals. Results: The current trial found that all herbal pastes permitted ion diffusion, but aloe vera pastes permitted for more ion diffusion and a significant upsurge in pH, indicating improved backing for calcium hydroxide activity. Conclusion: Aloe vera improved Ca(OH)2 diffusion via dentinal tubules, boosting its activity; hence, we recommend it as a channel for intracanal medication placement.
