Abstract
The present study aims to evaluate the choice and preference of the oobturating materials for pulpectomy of primary teeth in patients at Saveetha Dental college. Retrospective data of 2438 patients was obtained and segregated. Retrospective data of 2438 patients was obtained and segregated who visited between June 2019 to April 2020. After obtaining the data it was statistically analyzed using SPSS software by IBM Version 20. Out of the materials analysed in this study, Metapex (96.4%) was the most commonly used followed by Zinc Oxide Eugenol (1.8%) then Endoflas(1.5%) and the least used was Vitalex (0.16%). Metapex was the most widely used obturation material in Undergraduate and Postgraduate sections whereas Vitapex was used only in the Postgraduate Section. Metapex was most commonly used in anteriors. Whereas Endoflas, zinc oxide Eugenol and vitapex were most commonly used in posteriors (p=0.002). Males had undergone a greater number of pulpectomy procedures in comparison to females and there was a statistically significant association between the gender of the patient and the obturating material (p value =0.02). A statistically significant association was obtained between the choice of obturating material and age,gender of the patient and the tooth number ( using Chi square Test). Within the limits of the present study it is observed that the most common type of obturating material that is used is Metapex. Further studies are to be done to formulate a clear and distinct clinical practice guideline for pulpectomy procedure.Further awareness programmes that should be conducted to bring out better clinical outcomes and help the society holistically.

Key words: primary, pulpectomy, metapex, endoflas, vitapex
