Abstract

Pulp therapy helps in preserving a pulpally involved primary tooth by eliminating bacteria and their products and ensures hermetic seal of the root canals so that the primary tooth can complete its function without harming the successor or affecting the health of the patient. A thorough understanding of the pulp morphology and root formation and resorption in primary teeth as well as different materials and techniques used is imperative for a successful pulp therapy. One of the major areas of continued research is in the area of finding obturating materials to suit the specific properties of these teeth. This article seeks to present a review of the major obturating materials and techniques with their modifications as well as their advantages and disadvantages.
