Author(s): Zainab Juma Jafar and Dlear Essa

Objective: Pulpotomy technique basically consists of removing the coronal pulp and fixing the radicular pulp with a medicament. It is the most widely accepted clinical procedure for treating primary teeth with coronal pulp inflammation caused by caries with no involvement of the radicular pulp. A baseline data for this work is mandatory. Methods: This is a retrospective study conducted in the Department of Pedodontics, College of Dentistry, Baghdad University at 2014-2015 concerning the pulpotomized primary molars. The case sheets records for all children were collected; analyzed, and sorted according to the age groups, gender, tooth type, jaw, side, and the restorative materials used. SPSS version 17 was used for data analysis. Results: The highest percentage was for the age group of 6-9 years. Generally, boys were more than girls in the total sample. The higher percentage was found for pulpotomized primary 2nd molar than the primary 1st molar. There were more mandibular pulpotomized primary molars than maxillary, the right primary molars were pulpotomized more than the left primary molars, and the amalgam was the most used filling material. Conclusion: The percentage for age group 6-9 years was the highest, boys were more, pulpotomized 2nd primary molar was more than 1st primary molar, mandibular molars were higher than maxillary, right more than left, and the amalgam was the most common filling material used.
