Management of the grossly carious primary molar is a common but sometimes challenging aspect of dental care for young children.  Regrettably, the caries level of children living in the UAE is the highest world-wide and severe early childhood caries is epidemic.  It is therefore essential that clinicians are both confident and competent in selecting and undertaking the most appropriate treatment for grossly carious primary molars.  Pulp interventions combine a pulp treatment technique and a medicament. The primary objective of pulp interventions is to maintain the integrity of the tooth and the health of its supporting tissues.  The benefits of keeping the primary molar until its normal exfoliation include prevention of pain, sepsis and complications of premature extraction such as orthodontic problems.

The most important factors in success of vital pulp therapy are the early diagnosis of pulp and periradicular status, preservation of the pulp vitality and proper vascularization of the pulp and hermetic coronal seal. Evidence-based literature recommends restoring pulp therapy-treated teeth and multi-surface decayed teeth with preformed metal crowns (PMCs), a superior option in terms of longevity and success rates when compared to plastic restorations.
