Introduction: Formocresol has been used in primary tooth pulpotomies for decades as the drug of choice, but it is also the most controversial because it contains formaldehyde in its chemical composition. Knowing the germicidal effects of ozone, its application in Stomatology and the instability of traditional medicines in our services, the search for a natural and innocuous medicine for non-vital pulpotomy of temporary molars is imperative.Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of Topical OLEOZON in non-vital primary molar pulpotomy.Method: A quasi-experimental study of therapeutic intervention was carried out from January 2017 to January 2018 in the Stomatology Service of the CDI Casanay, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The sample consisted of 60 children between 4 and 9 years of age who met the established criteria, and were assigned to Study and Control Groups for treatment with Topical OLEOZON and Formocresol diluted to one-fifth, respectively. The variables age, sex, signs and symptoms, radiological status, evolution of treatment and effectiveness were operationalized. Absolute and relative frequencies were used as sum-mary means.Results: In both groups, the age group of 6-7 years, the female sex and the involvement of the first tem-porary lower molars predominated. 93.3% of the patients had a favorable evolution in the Study Group, compared to 86.7% in the Control Group.Conclusion: Topical OLEOZN is as effective as Formocresol in non-vital primary molar pulpotomy in 2 treatment sessions.
