Iodoformized zinc oxide-eugenol was tested for its antibacterial effect against the aerobic and anaerobic bacteria obtained from the root canals of deciduous teeth; the bacteria were staph aureus, strep viridans, strep faecalis, bacteroides melaninogenicus and also mixed culture obtained from infected non-vital anterior teeth. The sensitivity was checked on BHI- agar plates employing well-method. Iodoformized zinc oxide eugenol paste was found to be effective for both the aerobic and anaerobic bacteria of the root canals of deciduous teeth with maximum sustaining period of 10 days; staphylococcus aureus was found to be the most susceptible, while Streptococcus faecalis the most resistant.
