Restorative procedures involving primary teeth constitute a major segment of clinical pediatric dentistry. Anatomic and histological differences between primary and permanent dentitions necessitate modifications of cavity preparation in primary teeth. Cavities must also be prepared keeping in mind the needs for newer restorative materials currently in use. Meticulously adhering to the principles of cavity preparation is essential for the longevity of restoration.
