Preventive measures have reduced caries,however, premature loss of pulpally involved primary teeth remains a common problem. The resultant mesial drift of the permanent teeth frequently leads to malocclusion.Retention of the pulpally involved primary tooth to preserve arch space is preferable to space maintenance if the tooth can be restored to normal function and is free of pathology.The treatment of primary and young permanent teeth is quite safe and predictable, backed by a large body of research detailing the best clinical techniques and practices. With sound clinical techniques and some rather extraordinary compounds, a lot can be done to save baby teeth. As usually, treatment is based on assessment and diagnosis, and, especially in the case of primary teeth, may be decided by the state of the tooth at the time of examination.
