Abstract

Purpose: To study the evolution of 308 necrotic primary teeth after pulpectomy technique with resorbable paste (Kri-1 + calcium hydroxide + metacresol-formaldehyde) after 30 months. Methods: 134 children between 2-9 years were included, among which they had 348 pulpectomized teeth. Out of these 348 teeth, 308 had necrotic pulp and were included in the study. The filling material consisted of a paste based on Walkhoff s master formula and consisted of the combination of Kri-1a (80.8% iodoform, 2.025% parachlorophenol, 1.215% menthol, 4.68% camphor and excipient 15 mg), pure calcium hydroxide and metacresol formaldehyde (metacresol 20 mg, formaldehyde 20 mg, eugenol 20 mg, eucalyptus 6 mg and excipient 40 mg). Root canal filling was performed in one session by one operator. Results: Pain, swelling, and fistula resolution was observed in most cases at the first recall. Progressive remission of radiolucent areas was also observed. A relationship between fistula and radiolucency in pre-treated furcation area was observed, and, in some cases, premature eruption of permanent teeth was recorded. Only two cases out of 308 treated teeth required extraction.
