Canal filling in primary teeth. Description of two particular cases

Di Nardo Di Maio F., D'Arcangelo C., Varvara G.


Endopedodontics is that branch of child dentistry that regards pulp treatment in childhood. It involves endodontic treatment of all primary teeth and incisives, and of the first permanent molars with immature apex. The pedodontist has to exactly evaluate the techniques and the material to use in treating his patients. It is important to realize that we are facing a continuously evolving and absolutely unstable dentition. Therefore, the success of our work is the result of a careful evaluation of diagnostic parameters and of the techniques and the material. In the current clinical cases it is obvious how the lack of only one of the parameters listed, could represent the cause of severe damage to the patient's dental health and it could lead to psychological discomfort (if not damage), considering the age of the patient.
