Introduction: It is extremely important for the dentist the knowledge of the signs and symptoms caused by inflammation of the pulp of primary tooth, especially when the issue is either to keep or extract it. Objective: To develop a guide to assist dentists in the diagnosis and management of pulp therapy of primary teeth. Methodology: The protocols of the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry (reviewed in 2009), the British Society of Pediatric Dentistry (reviewed in 2006) and Cochrane Library (August of 2011) were sought for the best evidence to assist managers and professionals in the most appropriate decisions for their patients. Conclusion: Regardless of the decision concerning to the primary tooth and to the different treatment modalities, attention should be directed to the prognosis of the tooth in question, by restoring its health and function.
