Calcium hydroxide Calcium hydroxide is acknowledged for its capacity to induce regeneration of dentin and anti-microbial properties. The use of either calcium hydroxide or MTA can be recommended in the treatment of permanent teeth with carious pulp exposures when there is a pathologic change in the pulp at the exposure site. and young permanent teeth describes the pulpotomy procedure in primary teeth as the amputation of the affected or infected teeth, coronal portion of the dental pulp, preserving the vitality and function of all or part of the remaining radicular pulp.1,2 Many Pharmacological agents have been employed to achieve pulpotomy of teeth e.g. There was no statistically significant difference in the success rate … J Dent Child 1956;23:40-4. Pulpotomy is a vital pulp therapy in which the coronal pulp is removed partially or completely and the remaining pulp is covered with a pulpotomy agent.3 This treatment is based on the rational that after amputation of coronal pulp of the permanent teeth, the remaining pulp is protected by a hard-tissue stimulating material, and remains vital and healthy.4 Several materials have been proposed as … Anat Rec 2001;264:387-96. So bioactive ceramic is a valid alternative to calcium hydroxide as a pulpotomy material. Endod Top 2002;2:24-34.

Conclusions: Mineral trioxide aggregate showed clinical and radiographic success as a pulpotomy agent in immature permanent teeth (apexogenesis) and seems to be a suitable alternative to calcium hydroxide. Introduction: The aim of this quantitative systematic review/meta-analysis was to compare the treatment outcomes of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and calcium hydroxide (CH) in pulpotomy of human primary molars. In this manner, as well as a vital pulp, not Odontol Revy 1970;21:415-31. teeth with calcium hydroxide have sustained a success rate of [ , , ]. 2020; 20. This was treated by partial pulpotomy with calcium hydroxide and assessed clinically through pulpal sensitivity tests and radiographically for periapical healing and continued root end closure. Methods: Fifteen children, each with at least 2 immature permanent teeth requiring pulpotomy (apexogenesis) were selected for this study. In: Davidovitch Z, editor. 3 Now a days, its use become limited as pulpotomy medicament because of reported mutagenic and carcinogenic effects. A random effects model was used to generate pooled estimates. Camp J. Pediatric Endodontics: Endodontic treatment for the primary and young permanent dentition. Tronstad L. Root resorption-A multidisciplinary problem in dentistry. While calcium hydroxide works predictably when placed on the pulp, it washes out in the presence of tissue fluid. However, if this is to be achieved in permanent teeth, there is a need for suitable biomaterials for VPT, particularly pulpotomy. Immunol Rev 2009;231:241-56.
