Abstract

 Early childhood caries can lead to aesthetically unacceptable dentition with early loss of teeth which can affect a patient psychologically and socially. This trauma can be minimized by rehabilitation of grossly decayed primary anterior teeth with the use of intracanal retainers in the form of endodontic posts. Through this review the various options for retention of restorations in primary anterior teeth are described.
