Abstract

Root canal treatment in primary teeth requires effective obturation materials that can promote successful outcomes. Traditionally used materials such as non-reinforced zinc oxide-eugenol, iodoform-based pastes (e.g., KRI), and combination pastes containing iodoform and calcium hydroxide (e.g., Vitapex®, Endoflax®) have shown reasonable success rates in primary tooth obturation. However, recent developments in natural science have led to the emergence of novel obturating materials with enhanced properties and potential advantages. This review examines the characteristics of these new obturating materials, including. These materials offer improved biocompatibility, antibacterial properties, sealing ability, and bioactive potential, which may positively impact the outcome of root canal treatment in primary teeth. Furthermore, the review discusses the clinical applications and outcomes associated with these new obturating materials, exploring their efficacy in achieving hermetic canal seal, promoting healing of periapical lesions, preventing recontamination, and facilitating the resorption of primary roots for proper eruption of permanent teeth. In conclusion, this review provides valuable insights into the latest advancements in obturating materials for primary teeth, shedding light on their potential benefits and implications for clinical practice. Dental professionals can use this information to make informed decisions regarding the selection of obturating materials, ultimately improving the quality and success of root canal treatment in primary teeth. Further research is warranted to explore the long-term outcomes and comparative effectiveness of these new materials, paving the way for future advancements in pediatric endodontics.
