Abstract

  Maintaining the deciduous teeth in a functional state until its shedding time is the main aim of Pediatric Dentistry. Primary tooth is the best and natural space maintainer which helps to maintain the arch integrity, arch length and guides the permanent tooth eruption. If the deciduous teeth are damaged irreversibly it can be managed by root canal therapy which was first advocated in 1932 in order to serve its function till exfoliation. One of the key factors for the success of pulp therapy is selecting a suitable obturation material. Even though various obturation materials are existing in practice, Zinc Oxide Eugenol (ZOE) remains as the Gold standard material. This review article presents an overview of Zinc Oxide Eugenol as an obturating material.
