In primary teeth that are pulpally involved, pulp therapy is performed with the sole aim of maintaining the teeth until normal physiological exfoliation. This is to avoid any abnormalities in occlusion in the permanent dentition. However, conditions such as the presence of extensive root resorption and/or presence of furcal radiolucency may contradict pulpectomy, and in such cases, lesion sterilization and tissue repair seems to be a promising alternative to extraction followed by space maintenance.
