In brief: Formaldeyde

In dentistry formaldehyde has been used fro what seems like forever. In children it is used to "fix" the pulp of a baby tooth.
While decades ago concerned was raised about its use and potential long term consequences none were found. It has long history of effectiveness. Alternatives are in use but have not been as effective.
