    Background: Pulp therapy for primary teeth continues to be a challenge to clinicians. One of the major areas of research is in the area of finding new obturating materials to suit the specific properties of these teeth. This article seeks to present a review of the major obturating materials in dentistry and their modifications as well as their advantages and disadvantages. Aim: The aim of this review is to analyze the role of different pediatric obturating materials in dentistry. Materials and Methods: Thorough literature search will be performed in the electronic database in the present inclusion and exclusion. For this work, a systematic bibliographic search was performed using PubMed and ResearchGate, without time or language limitations and books as a complement. The search was performed using the following words: Pulpectomy, children, obturating materials, zinc oxide eugenol, calcium hydroxide, iodoform, endoflas, metapex, vitapex, and pulpotec. Conclusion: The selection of appropriate obturating material is crucial in successful endodontic therapy. It has been found that the current obturating materials for primary teeth while providing satisfactory clinical results still need to be modified to suit the various clinical situations that are encountered. Recent advances in alternative root filling materials also promise better adhesion to root canal and avert the shortcomings of gutta-percha.
