(2) Furthermore, smear layer removal during the canal chemomechanical preparation is believed to improve pulpectomy outcomes in primary teeth.
The endodontic treatment aims at accessing the root canal, performing pulpectomy, irrigating the canal, placing of medicament in the canals and, finally, obturation of the root canal.1,2 In teeth with pulpal necrosis and infected canals, the incidence of pain increases.1 The canal debridement is carried out and intra-canal medicament is added as an adjunct to minimise the inter-appointment pain.2,3 Endodontic treatment is carried out in single or multiple visits.4,5 The multiple-visit treatment targets the elimination of the microbes along with by-products from the canals before obturation.6 The single visit doesn't give the advantage of placement of an intra-canal medicament between the visits but it has merits of its own.

Children of all age groups are affected by dental caries and its treatment is restorative care, which may even include pulp therapy like indirect pulp capping, pulpotomy and pulpectomy.
Pulpectomy treatment is one option for maintaining primary teeth diagnosed with pulpal tissue inflammation involving radicular or nonvital pulp until normal exfoliation (1).
Hence, it was planned to restore the maxillary anterior teeth by performing pulpectomy followed by the post and core for these teeth.

Objective: To evaluate the therapeutic effects of pulpotomy and pulpectomy on deciduous molars with deep caries.
A treatment plan was formed as follows: Pulpectomy in respect to 51, 52, 54, 61, 62, and 64 with semi-permanent esthetic restorations in respect to 51, 52, 61, and 62.
Because the lesion does not extend anteriorly to primary molar area, routine treatment (pulpectomy, extraction, etc.) for deciduous molars can be performed, if it is required in future.
In this regard, the Er:YAG laser has been used for enamel pretreatment, dental caries removal, pulpotomy, and pulpectomy. Laser systems have several important advantages over the traditional approaches of dental treatment for infants.
Compared to pulpectomy, it is a more conservative procedure and it is easier to perform because root canals of deciduous teeth are often more difficult to treat compared to permanent ones.
