    Dental caries is the most common chronic disease of childhood which presents significant clinical issues in primary teeth. If dental caries is left untreated at initial stage, it progresses towards pulp which subsequently leads to infection, abscess and premature tooth loss. The inflammation of pulp tissue occurs as a result of dental caries progressing deep into the tooth. Pediatric endodontics has evolved much new advancement in the past few decades. The variation of the root canal system in primary teeth makes difficult to remove the necrotic pulp by instrumentation. This success of pulpectomy requires proper instrumentation techniques. The intention of the present review on various instrumentation techniques for pulpectomy in primary teeth is for better outcome of the procedure.
