Materials and method. 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. So in search of ideal obturating 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. 10. • Advantages - it has bactericidal effect. the primary teeth. Currently available endodontic filling materials for primary teeth demonstrate several inadequacies. One of the major areas of continued research is in the area of finding obturating materials to suit the specific properties of these 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. Prospective randomised clinical study. 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). 2019;5:294–310 Zinc oxide eugenol (ZOE) has traditionally been used as a root filling material in primary teeth pulpectomy. 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. An ideal filling technique should assure ... be visibly filled at the orifice with zinc oxide eugenol 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). - It decreases tooth pain. 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. were used in primary teeth but none of these materials have the ideal obturating properties. Should not irritate the periapical tissues Ideal root canal obturating material for primary teeth. • Disadvantages - It’s rate of resorption is slower than that of the primary tooth root.
