Background: The complete removal of microorganisms from the infected root canals of deciduous teeth is a complicated task. The probability of a favorable outcome with root canal treatment is significantly high only if the infection is eradicated effectively before the obturation of the root canals. Instrumentation and irrigation help in the process of elimination and biomechanical preparation of the root canal. The aim of this study is to find the choice of irrigants preferred for primary teeth pulpectomy

Materials and Methods: The data was collected from Digital Information Archiving Software (DIAS) of Saveetha Dental College. The study data was collected from November 2020 to January 2021 . The data included patients who had undergone a primary teeth pulpectomy. The collected data was entered and tabulated in excel and SPSS package software was used to analyse the data. The level of statistical significance in the study was considered to be p<0.05.

Results: The most commonly used irrigant of choice for primary teeth pulpectomy was combination of saline and EDTA for single visit pulpectomy and saline for multi visit pulpectomy. 

Conclusion: The knowledge of preference of root canal irrigants can increase the success of the pulp therapy along with the healing of the periapical tissues.
