The field of pediatric dentistry gyrates around the preservation of primary dental arch for the growth of jaws, space maintenance and speech development. Vital pulp therapy prevents further infection of the radicular pulp and maintains the function of the teeth. Since many years, various pulpotomy medicaments have been used. Due to disadvantages of each of these materials, there is a continual search on finding an ideal material with good success rate. Recently, the use of herbal medicaments is on rise to reduce the potential side effects. This review aims to highlight the benefits and flaws associated with each of the medicament used in the literature.
