A. 30 teeth were divided into two groups of 15 teeth. 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. so that the primary teeth can complete their function until normal exfoliation. Aim: To evaluate the success rate of mixture of ozonated oil and zinc oxide as a primary teeth root filling material. Zinc oxide–eugenol cement (Fig. ANDHRA PRADESH, India: The success of a pulpectomy depends on the elimination of bacteria from the root canal. 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. Several materials have been proposed for the obturation of root canals of primary teeth and, although no single material fulfills all requirements of an ideal endodontic paste filler (1), zinc oxide and eugenol cement (ZOE) has been widely used in the primary dentition (1,5). Eugenol is an essential oil with germicide activity and was first used in 1876 by Chisholm who make Zinc oxide eugenol or ZOE 7. The materials used for obturation in this study included zinc oxide propolis (ZOP) as a new paste, Endoflas, Metapex, and zinc oxide eugenol (ZOE). evaluated clinically and radiographically a mixture of zinc oxide eugenol and aloe vera as an obturating material for Pulpectomy in a total of 15 primary molars for a period of 9 months.The incidence of pain present preoperatively reduced to 86.67% postoperatively. 12.Leonardo’s paste Iodoform. 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. • Disadvantages - It’s rate of resorption is slower than that of the primary tooth root. Clin Exp Dent Res. None of these materials so far meet the ideal requirement of root canal filling material. Hence the success of the treatment in such cases would depend upon complete obturation of the canal space Various materials had developed for obturation of primary teeth. Several materials have been used to fill root canals of primary teeth. [8] The 13 to 30 gauge needle Methods: The study included 60 infected primary mandibular molars which were equally divided into study group (ozonated oil-ZnO) and control group (zinc oxide-eugenol). 8.Calcium hydroxide with sterile water 9. A histologic comparison of Hydron and zinc oxide-eugenol as endodontic filling materials in the primary teeth of dogs. The present study, performed in-vivo, included 30 infected primary teeth in 26 children in the age group of 3-8 years. Should not irritate the periapical tissues 6.Zinc oxide eugenol 7.Zinc oxide mixed with sterile water. So in search of ideal obturating Researchers have now experimented with a new mixture consisting of propolis, which is a natural product with proven antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and zinc oxide powder as a filling material in primary teeth. This study was carried out to compare zinc oxide eugenol with endoflas for pulpectomy in primary dentition. Endoflas, a mixture of zinc oxide eugenol, calcium hydroxide, and iodoform, can be considered to be an effective root canal filling material in primary teeth as compared with zinc oxide eugenol. Khairwa et al. Zinc Oxide Eugenol – When zinc oxide is mixed with eugenol, Zinc Oxide Eugenol (ZOE) cement is the result. The reaction is catalysed by water and is accelerated by the presence of metal salts. Currently available endodontic filling materials for primary teeth demonstrate several inadequacies. obturating material as well as obturation technique used that is capable of densely filling the entire root canal system and providing ... material into primary teeth root canals. 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. Woods RL, Kildea PM, Gabriel SA, Freilich LS. AIM : To evaluate and compare the clinical and radiographic success of zinc oxide eugenol, metapex and endoflas as obturating materials in pulpectomy of primary teeth at 3 and 6 months follow up. Unreinforced Zinc Oxide Eugenol products are still on the market, but they should only be used when strength and solubility are not critical. Curcuminpossessesanti-inflammatory and antimicrobialproperties which can be implied by its use as obturating material in primary teeth. • Group four root canal filling materials for primary teeth.II—90.5% • Group III—88.9% • Group IV—85.0% DISCUSSION Zinc oxide-eugenol is the most frequently used root canal filling material for primary teeth. Ideal root canal obturating material for primary teeth. which would otherwise be lost.

ZINC OXIDE EUGENOL PASTE • It is the most commonly used root canal filling material for primary teeth. Pulpectomy procedure was performed and the children were followed at regular intervals. The liquid is a preparation of eugenol, which reacts with the powder to form an amorphous chelate of zinc … were used in primary teeth but none of these materials have the ideal obturating properties. For the success of endodontic treatment in primary teeth, the resorption of obturating material plays a vital role. 9 The ZOE pastes are not bactericidal, unless mixed with drugs, such as formocresol (Grossman L). Zinc Oxide Eugenol (or) ZOE is a Irreversible Rigid Impression material used as a secondary technique to take impression of Edentulous patients with the help of Mucocompessive technique.. As seen in the name this impression material is made up of Zinc Oxide and Eugenol (Oil of cloves). Materials and method. available, commonly used obturating materials for primary teeth are zinc oxide eugenol, calcium hydroxide and iodoform based pastes. 10. To evaluate the success rate of mixture of ozonated oil and zinc oxide as a primary teeth root filling material. Vitapex TM. One of the major areas of continued research is in the area of finding obturating materials to suit the specific properties of these teeth. Various obturating materials are zinc oxide eugenol (ZOE), iodoform, Vitapex, metapex, calcium hydroxide, Endoflas, etc. BACKGROUND: Pulp therapy for pulpally involved primary teeth continues to be a challenge to clinicians. Zinc oxide eugenol is used frequently in pulpectomy for the obturation of the primary teeth. 1. Endodontic therapy has to be done to treat infected pulp. Background: To establish mixture of zinc oxide and 10% sodium fluoride as a novel root canal obturating material for primary teeth.Aim: This study aims to evaluate clinical and radiographic success of a mixture of zinc oxide and 10% sodium fluoride as root canal obturating material.Settings and Design: This pilot study was conducted among 30 primary molars indicated for pulpectomy. • Advantages - it has bactericidal effect. Classification: It is classified by ADA with the ADA Specification N.o: 16 Another root canal filling material that contains zinc oxide eugenol, calcium hydroxide and iodoform is commercially available as Endoflas. Iodoform was also found to have an excellent healing properties and resorbtion of excess material and has been suggested as an alternate to ZOE 3,8. 21.2) contains zinc oxide, rosin, and zinc acetate in the powder.The rosin increases fracture resistance and the zinc acetate is effective in accelerating the reaction rate. Zinc oxide eugenol (ZOE) is a material created by the combination of zinc oxide and eugenol contained in oil of cloves.An acid-base reaction takes place with the formation of zinc eugenolate chelate. Eugenol has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties which are very useful after a pulpectomy procedure.11 It has a disadvantage in that excess
