The main objective in paediatric dentistry is to maintain primary teeth in the oral cavity till exfoliation. The reaction is catalysed by water and is accelerated by the presence of metal salts. 12.Leonardo’s paste Iodoform. material fulfilling these ideal requirements.4,5,6 The traditional root canal filling materials for primary teeth are calcium hydroxide (Ca (OH) 2), zinc oxide (ZnO), and zinc oxide eugenol (ZnOE) with or without formocresol (FC) or iodoform paste. [8] The 13 to 30 gauge needle Endodontic therapy has to be done to treat infected pulp. A histologic comparison of Hydron and zinc oxide-eugenol as endodontic filling materials in the primary teeth of dogs. the primary teeth. Aim: To evaluate the success rate of mixture of ozonated oil and zinc oxide as a primary teeth root filling material. Woods RL, Kildea PM, Gabriel SA, Freilich LS. Zinc oxide and eugenol (ZOE) paste was the first root canal filling material to be recommended for primary teeth, as described by Sweet in 1930. Prospective randomised clinical study. So in search of ideal obturating To evaluate the success rate of mixture of ozonated oil and zinc oxide as a primary teeth root filling material. The present study, performed in-vivo, included 30 infected primary teeth in 26 children in the age group of 3-8 years. 2019;5:294–310 Zinc oxide eugenol (ZOE) has traditionally been used as a root filling material in primary teeth pulpectomy. Traditionally, zinc oxide eugenol was used for the purpose, until the introduction of calcium hydroxide and iodoform based materials. 9 The ZOE pastes are not bactericidal, unless mixed with drugs, such as formocresol (Grossman L). Zinc oxide eugenol is used frequently in pulpectomy for the obturation of the primary teeth. Zinc Oxide Eugenol – When zinc oxide is mixed with eugenol, Zinc Oxide Eugenol (ZOE) cement is the result. Should not irritate the periapical tissues 120 grossly decayed primary molars of children, aged 4 to 9 years were selected with signs or symptoms of irreversibly inflamed pulp tissue and randomly assigned to one of the four groups: zinc oxide eugenol, zinc oxide powder with 10% sodium fluoride, zinc oxide powder with Aloe vera, and Endoflas. Several materials have been used to fill root canals of primary teeth. 13.Walkhoff paste. Another root canal filling material that contains zinc oxide eugenol, calcium hydroxide and iodoform is commercially available as Endoflas. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of two obturating materials, zinc oxide-eugenol and Maisto's paste, in infected primary teeth. Zinc oxide–eugenol cement (Fig. For the success of endodontic treatment in primary teeth, the resorption of obturating material plays a vital role. ZINC OXIDE EUGENOL PASTE • It is the most commonly used root canal filling material for primary teeth. Eugenol is an essential oil with germicide activity and was first used in 1876 by Chisholm who make Zinc oxide eugenol or ZOE 7. None of these materials so far meet the ideal requirement of root canal filling material. Pulpectomy procedure was performed and the children were followed at regular intervals. Background:Zinc oxide eugenol(ZOE) has long been the material of choice for obturating primary teeth,but it is resistant to resorption, might result in a deflected successor and has limited antibacterial efficacy.
