Formocresol (FC) was first used for pulpotomy in primary teeth by Sweet in 1930 who reported a success rate of 97%.3 Since then, FC has been in use and still remains a benchmark owing to its consistent success as a pulpotomy agent.4 It mummifies the residual pulp stumps therefore preserving the vitality of the tooth.5 Success rate of FC varies from 55% to 98%, as reported in different studies.1 Although FC has a high success rate, it does not produce a favorable pulpal response at histological level.
In the consulted literature, there is no randomized controlled clinical trial, with adequate methodology, conducted to evaluate the performance of root filling materials after smear layer removal in pulpectomy of primary teeth. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the clinical and radiographic performance of pulpectomies using 1) iodoform paste and 2) calcium hydroxide/zinc oxide (Calen[R]/ZO) paste (thickened by the manufacturer) in primary teeth with irreversible pulpitis or pulp necrosis caused by dental caries or trauma.
Traumatic intrusion of primary teeth and its effects on the permanent successors: a clinical follow-up study.
The proportion of dentine caries lesions assessed as being restorable (codes 4, 5) was 82.74% for primary teeth and 5.76% for permanent teeth.
The most popular root-canal filling materials for primary teeth have been zinc oxide eugenol, calcium hydroxide and iodoform-based pastes (2,5).
Then, the acrylic teeth were taken and trimmed to the size of primary teeth; the teeth were placed directly on the alveolar crest with the acrylic material.
The importance of preserving the primary teeth, the role of primary teeth in preventing future malocclusions, and the consequences of premature loss of primary teeth, if explained to the parents well, will lead to more number of primary teeth being restored rather than being extracted.

(4) One study (n=l 1,394) used dental disease status at kindergarten (defined as the count of decayed, missing [molar teeth only], and filled primary teeth) as an outcome measure.
([section]) Primary teeth are the first teeth (baby teeth), which are shed and replaced by permanent teeth.
The patient data were retrospectively recorded, including general and dental history, reasons for general anaesthesia and treatment modalities, such as the number of restorative primary teeth and restorative permanent teeth, the total number of teeth undergoing operative restoration, root-canal treatment, amputation, stainless-steel-crowns, tooth extraction, glass-ionomer-cement, preventive-resin-restoration, supragingival scaling, full-mouth prophylaxis and fissure-sealant procedures.
In the present study, CHC and glass ionomer cement were preferred over MTA for indirect pulp capping in both primary teeth and permanent teeth, which is in line with the evidence for effectiveness (18).
